HE'S young, brash, cocky and he's talked the talk. Now he's ready to walk the walk.

Newcastle's Darkon Dryden has sparked the attention of the country with his comments in the lead up to the first Super8 title event on the TGW & Smithy Bring the Big Fights 18 card at Rumours International on November 25.

The question remains, is his mouth writing cheques his fists can cash?

Darkon says yes and is ready to prove it. He was the first fighter to nominate for the event - not bothered who the remaining seven competitors would be.

"I think this concept suits me down to a tee, there's world champs and aussie champs over ten rounds. You drop down to these shorter rounds and I've got power in both hands,”Dryden said.

"I just see me winning. No one believes me yet. I'm the dark horse and they'll start believing after this.

"I'm going to Toowoomba and I'm getting the 20k...but it's ok I'll shout all the other fighters a beer afterwards.”

"I think everyone is going to be a believer after fight one, I'm confident,” Dryden said.

The draw for the Super8 will be conducted in the week leading up to the show however Dryden has insisted - forget the draw and give him Mick Shaw, Jack Asis or anyone who's willing.
