Hodges Loses to Hot Prospect

Dani Hodges lost on points to the 2018 Commonwealth games flyweight gold medallist Lisa Whiteside as she made her pro debut (18.5.19). Hodges had taken the 4 round fight at short notice which was on the undercard of the “King of Herts" show with Billy Joe Saunders headlining it at the Lamex stadium Stevenage. Hodges The “Pocket Rocket” made a good account of herself giving the hot prospect a good 4 round test with the ref scoring it 40-36 to Whiteside. 

Hodges took to social media after the fight to put this status up. She wrote “All I can say is we learn, we rebuild, we grow, I did not get the win tonight but I showed why I belong on this stage. Its madness just the girl from Chasetown out on stage with the elites, can't get my head round it. To hear so many people say on a fight a card like this, how much they enjoyed our war it was their favourite fight makes me so proud of myself and more importantly proud of female boxing. A big status coming thanking everyone but right now I'm going to sit with my boys and girls who travelled their support feels like a win in itself and enjoy the rest of the night I've earned it. The Pocket Rocket will not be resting for long as she is going with fellow stable mate Kristie Bavington to a boxing camp in Tenerife.

Dexter’s Thoughts

Well you got to give the pocket rocket a lot of credit for taking this fight at such short notice against a fighter who is being groomed for stardom. Hodges will learn a lot from this fight and gas put her self up on the big stage for the world to see and did herself and her team proud. Dani is a cracking boxer and is technical very good and she always shows loads of heart and bottle when she fights. Hodges is a credit to female boxing and is putting it on the map with her fellow BcB female stable mates.
