Jamie McDonnell might be a six-time world champion, but it has not stopped him working part-time as a plasterer or buying lottery tickets.The Briton, formerly an IBF title holder, makes a fifth defence of his WBA bantamweight belt against Venezuelan Liborio Solis (25-4-1, 11 KOs) at the glitzy Salle des étoiles on Saturday.Then, after the glamour of a world title fight in Monte Carlo, 30-year-old McDonnell (28-2-1, 13 KOs) will don his overalls next week back home in northern England, working with twin brother and super-bantamweight contender Gavin (16-0-2, 4 KOs).I still do plastering jobs and Ive lined a couple of jobs up after this fight, Jamie McDonnell told ESPN.After the fight Ill go straight home, do a job, and then go on holiday to Mexico. When I get back Ive got another job lined up.I enjoy the work. My brother does a bit as well, and its a good craic with the other lads. It gives you something to do when youre not training, otherwise youd just be eating.Unless I win the lottery, I cant stop the plastering. I keep doing the lottery and keep working -- couple of jobs after each fight and the odd one here and there doing up mates houses.Despite what people think, were not on stupid money. I cant just put my feet up. When I retire I will have something to fall back on. Some fighters will have no qualifications or experience to help get into a job and thats probably what gets them down. I will set my business up and use my name.McDonnell, from Doncaster, in Englands northern county of Yorkshire, had been preparing to face Raushee Warren (14-1, 4 KOs), who represented America at three Olympics. Instead, he will defend his belt against Solis on the same bill as fellow Briton Stephen Smith, who has a world title challenge against WBA super-featherweight champion Jason Sosa.Confusingly, Warren holds the WBAs more prestigious world title belt -- hes the super champion -- and McDonnell, the regular champion, hopes they can meet next year.I was told Warren turned it down and didnt want to come out of America, McDonnell said. He wants to keep his belt, but I dont mind travelling and if they could have made the fight in the USA I would have had it there.Hes a good name and its a more high profile fight than this one. I had been training for five or six weeks, expecting to fight Warren.Its probably the best Ive felt for making weight for a long time, but Ive only got one or two more fights at bantamweight left before I move up.I would love to fight [WBC champion] Shinsuke Yamanaka, if it can be made. But there are bigger names in the division above. Probably my last fight in the bantamweight division will be early next year.McDonnells ambitions do not stop there, however. Even moving up to featherweight with Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton, or Lee Selby, appeals to me, he added.I would win a world title at super-bantamweight and then move up to featherweight. I would also like to beat [IBF bantamweight champion Lee] Haskins. That would be a good all-British fight.Ive always said I would be retired at 30, but Im just coming good so I would say I will go on until 35 now. Andrew MacDonald Jersey
