The twotime Olympic bronze medallist went to Cristofer Rosales in only his sixth professional struggle.
Barnes, 31, returns into the ring to take on Isaac Quaye on the undercard of both Carl Frampton’s IBF world title fight with Josh Warrington at Manchester.
“Hopefully I can push and find yourself a few struggles early next 12 months,” explained Barnes.
“And then next summer I hope to really go for a world title.
“My aim in this struggle is to have an excellent six rounds – I don’t want to stop himI want to go on the market and ship a bit longer as rounds are fundamentally what I want.
“He’s a lot smaller than me personally and I expect to go out and try to spoil the struggle. I’ll stick to my boxing and utilize my boxing brain as opposed to make an effort to blast away him.
“I think two more fights after this one and I will be all set for a world title but in case it came I wouldn’t say no.”
Feather weight Michael Conlan will also be in action against Jason Cunningham at a 10-rounder for its vacant WBO Intercontinental name as a portion of their bill.
A success for Conlan would put up him for a very important 20-19 when the Belfast person hopes to move into the planet’s top ten.
“I have put in all the difficult work and I am felling ready,” said Conlan. “Saturday night will be as hard or as easy as I want to ensure it is. I will hold a performance.”
Southpaw Cunningham won and lost the Commonwealth featherweight title a year but still has his or her own ambitions from the game.
