To Ricky Burns, his assignment at the Hydro in Glasgow is simply another opponent, another world title defence.
There are plenty of reasons to be wary of Kiryl Relikh, but Burns has never carried apprehension into any of his fights.
Friday night's bout will be Scot Burns' first defence of his WBA super-lightweight belt - the third weight at which he has held a world title - and there is a stark contrast between the two boxers.
Burns is experienced, a 33-year-old about to fight his 47th bout with 349 rounds behind him in his professional career, and a man at ease with his status and the demands of being a world champion.
Relikh, at 26, has only fought 21 times, across 61 rounds, although there ought to be regard given to 19 of those fights ending by knockout. It is clear that the Belarus boxer, who lives and trains in Manchester, is capable of powerful punching, but also that Burns is a step up in class from his previous opponents.
Should be a good fight on SS2 tonight. Anyone else be watching??
