Natasha Jonas is very motivated to cap off a big year, when she returns to the ring on Saturday night in a three belt unification with Marie-Eve Dicaire.

The two will clash for the WBO, IBF, WBC junior middleweight world titles at the Manchester Arena.

Jonas would love to eventually clash with undisputed middleweight champion Claressa Shields in a high stakes fight.

But she won't look too far ahead, with her full focus on Dicaire.

"I think it's every boxer's dream to go into a big stadium. Hopefully Ben [Shalom, her promoter] can do Anfield and get the home supporters on a big fight night and perform. That's all you want to do. You want to perform. You want to win titles and you want to showcase your best," Jonas said.

"I can't even let myself dream and look past Saturday because if Saturday doesn't go right, then none of those fights even happen. I'm just fully focused on the fight in front of me."

Dicaire is a solid test. The two-time world champion has a single loss on her record, and that loss came at the hands of Shields.

"Naturally I think she is [bigger] but we've done everything we can to work on every best version of her. If she wants to go on the back foot and counter, whether she wants to come forward and attack and use her size advantage, we've done everything in camp we can to combat that," Jonas told Sky Sports.

"We hope there's the best version of her. Because there's going to be the best version of me. May the best woman win? I don't like predictions, I've never been a person for that but I've trained and I've put my body through hell to have 10 hard rounds so that's what I'm prepared for."
