No, both are fine. By fronting "myself" in this way you emphasise it. I can't remember exactly what Kell said, but it involved a contrast with what his opponent said - so the fronting "alerts" the listener to the change of focus. It was something like :
Khan wants to delay the fight - but meself, I just want to get into the ring.
It has the same meaning/effect as starting the clause with "personally" :
Khan wants to delay the fight - but personally, I just want to get into the ring.
Here's an example that I found in a novel on Google Books :
"Yes, very impressive" he agreed drily. "But then, it is designed to be. However, myself I prefer the less - shall we say tourist-inhabited places of the city."
