Ali Adams has enlisted the help of a hypnotist as part of his preparations for his showdown with Audley Harrison.
Former Olympic champion Harrison, 40, will make his return to the ring to face Adams in Brentwood on 14 April.
It will be the Wembley heavyweight’s first fight since he lost a one-sided world title bout against David Haye in November 2010.
And the 30-year-old Adams, who was born in Iraq and lives in Chelsea, is determined to leave no stone unturned in the build-up to the biggest fight of his career.
“After a 15-minute session I can spar in a trance and feel no pain. It is amazing,” said Adams.
“My promoter Steve Goodwin recommended this guru who has helped many jockeys and other sportsmen that Steve has dealt with in the past.
“I am hitting harder than ever before and knocking people clean out in sparring after this hypnosis. We know that Audley will be knocked out in round four.”
He added “My hypnotist will be in my dressing room before the fight and will accompany me to the ring.
“Audley cannot win this fight and he has always gone on about his destiny. I can tell him his destiny is to be on his back on the canvas in round four.”
