LIAM Cameron aims to emerge from the shadows on Saturday.

The Sheffielder has gone off the boxing radar as young city fighters like Kell Brook and Kid Galahad have achieved celebrity status.

Cameron, who earned headlines of his own on the back of nine straight wins and modelling contacts, has had to take a back seat since losing his unbeaten tag last year.

Now, after two more wins, he is to appear on the undercard of the Jamie McDonnell v Ivan Pozo European title fight, at Hillsborough Centre.

Cameron, aged 21, said: “Others have been getting the attention and I have no problem with that: Kell is a great boxer and I like Galahad’s speed and style. There aren’t that many boxers around. We are like a family and I wish them all success. All the Ingle fighters are good - as is Jamie - but now I want to share some of that limelight again.”

He gets the chance at Hillsborough against dangerous Hampshire southpaw Tony Hill, who was outpointed in a British middleweight title eliminator last October.

“When I beat him I will go from being number 10 to number five in the country,” Cameron added.
