It’s taken Mikie Webber-Kane a while to reveal his secret weapon - but as he steps up to the next stage in his career, his fans are likely to see it more and more.

‘It’ is the big punch, the one which came out to devastating effect when Webber-Kane clinched a sixth-round stoppage win over Robert Caswell - who hit the canvas four times – to bring the Southern Area super-featherweight title back to Great Yarmouth.

It was Webber-Kane’s second stoppage win in a dozen unbeaten outings, most of which were aimed at taking him up to the next level, with the aid off some wily journeymen opponents. Now, the hunter is the hunted.

“I think my team have known for a while that I've got a bit of venom in my punches,” said the 25-year-old, whose next stop is the 02 on July 6 when he faces challenger Frank Arnold (11-1-1).

“It’s taken a while to believe I've got that power in my punches. Sparring people like Liam Walsh, Ryan Walsh, Scott Moises - they're elite athletes at a very good level in the sport, so it's hard to land those clean punches on those boys as well.

“Even before I turned amateur there was an open workout event when you could do pads with Mayweather Senior and I was hitting the pads with him and even he said when I was 17 years old that I’d got a bit of venom in my punches.

“So it has taken a long time for me to understand and believe myself that I have that power, but now that my technique has got so much better, I'm in the gym working so much harder doing the right strength work, doing the right training around the right athletes, I believe that now I can punch and because of that belief it's coming through in my performances now, like the Caswell performance.

“I think a lot of people outside of our team and fan base thought it was going to be an easy win for Robert Caswell. He has got a good amateur pedigree, but the pro game is a bit different to the amateurs and I think that suited my style a bit more. Before that fight I was 11-0 with only one stoppage, so people didn't really think that I can punch hard or punch with any venom or viciousness in me. But I can punch. I think I proved that on my last fight.

“Obviously it's harder to land those clean punches on the journeymen because they're there to survive, they are there to teach you but they're there to survive, they've got to be there to earn their money and they're going be out in two or three weeks time fighting again. They can't do that if they get hurt so they like to tuck up and move around. But when someone’s standing in front of me letting their hands go, I find those spaces and I hit people hard.”
