Dexter’s Thoughts

What a fight especially being on a small hall show, two of the best names in Midlands boxing contesting for the Middleweight commonwealth silver belt. This is a true fifty, fifty contest with both fighter having experience at the top level and both being in big fights in the pasted. This is an exciting contest and as I rate both fighter very highly I could not say who is going to get there hand raised. All I know that the Column will be there for this potential fight of the year contest
