The 20 years old from Cardiff was getting ready for his second pro fight in Newport on May 7.

But instead, the former world featherweight champion Steve's son, now two weeks after London O2 Arena itself for strong light is readying.

“It’s a big step up for me.

“It’s a bit different from the Newport Centre and I’ve got to train hard to make sure everything will be all right.

“I will definitely be fit and ready on the night though.

Like how to deal with Warne came about, Robinson admits that the way he is, but it is thought that they did the right thing for my career, I was surprised.

He added, “I was quite surprised at the way it all happened because I haven’t had much amateur experience”.

“They must have seen something in me in my first fight and they showed they were interested. It was too good an opportunity to turn down.

“I was already under contract so I sent my paperwork to Frank Warren’s people to see if I could get out of it and they thought I could and that’s what happened.

“My dad was with Frank and he’s the best promoter in Britain and is a person who can get you to the top.

“I’m happy with the deal Luke has signed and the way things are going for him.”

Robinson Snr confirmed that his other fighter, Kelly King, also in Newport on May 7 will not feature, rather than on a Frank Maloney show on May 13 fight.
