All that Jay Harris knew about his scheduled showdown versus Paddy Barnes last October was that he was required to travel to the Belfast hometown of the three-time Olympian.

Even after his arm was raised in victory following a stunning 4th round knockout over the double Olympic bronze medalist, little was known of his next step, other that he’d earned the biggest win of his career.

“It was a risk I was willing to take,” Harris (17-0, 9KOs) told BoxingScene.com of his willingness to travel to the lion’s den without any assurance of what lied ahead. “I had no idea it was going to lead to a title shot. I had a feeling it would get me in the mix, but had no idea I’d have a straight shot at it.”

Who? Never heard of him. Again--not unusual.
