Frank Maloney in association with Phil Jeffries and Loaded TV presents Championship Boxing
The big-punching Jon Lewis Dickinson and David Dolan are to fight Friday 15 February at The Rainton Meadows Arena, Sunderland, with Dickinson’s British cruiserweight title on the line, live and exclusive on Loaded TV (Sky Ch. 200).
Dickinson captured the British title in October 2012 with a commanding victory over Shane McPhilbin and is on a run of four consecutive victories, the first of which came over Dolan.
His improving challenger, however, was then only narrowly outpointed and is used to winning in his home town – being from Sunderland he is that bit more local than Birtley’s Dickinson – as demonstrated in his last fight against Simeon Cover.
Chief support on the card sees Scottish heavyweight Gary Cornish attempt to extend his unbeaten record.
Scarborough cruiserweight Danny Price, meanwhile, will be attempting to fight his way into title contention in one of Britain’s most competitive divisions, having won all five of his fights in a successful 2012.
Also featuring on the undercard are an array of competitive match-ups between some of Britain’s most exciting fighters.
Easington welterweight Paul Archer faces Brighton’s Kevin McCauley, Gateshead welterweight Craig Dixon meets Bulgaria’s Donny Dontchev, Hartlepool super featherweight Peter Cope challenges David Lake of South Shields, and Fishburn light welterweight Gary Fox is up against Mark McKray of Tottenham.
Finally, South Shields bantamweight Anthony Nelson is to fight Francis Croes of Middlesbrough, while Spennymoor’s Ben Jackson makes his professional debut at light welterweight against Sid Razak of Birmingham.
Tickets priced at £35 and £75 are available from Frank Maloney Promotions Box Office on www.frankmaloney.com.
Dickinson v Dolan is live and exclusive on Loaded TV (Sky Ch. 200; www.loaded.tv/home).
