Jazza-ing up Liverpool bill

Unbeaten Liverpool prospect Jazza Dickens 13-0 is to get a title shot on home soil after he landed a shot at the vacant English super-0bantamweight title on Matchroom’s Echo Arena bill on March 30th.

His promoter Ricky Hatton told DAILY SPORT “This is a massive opportunity for Jazza to win his first professional title in front of his home crowd,”

“We’ve had a few problems getting any one to fight him and I imagine that’s been a little bit frustrating for him, but he’s got his chance now and I expect him to grab it with both hands.

“I’ve said before that Jazza is a bit of a dark horse in super-bantamweight division and people like Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton should keep an eye on him because I don’t think it’ll be too long before he’s snapping at their heels.”

This night will be an action packed affair with Tony Bellew headlining up against Isaac Chilemba as he edges closer to another world title shot, while there’s the mouth-watering rematch of the 2012 fight of the year between Derry Mathews and Anthony Crolla for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title.

Rocky Fielding defends his English super middleweight title against Wayne Reed, Team GB captain Thomas Stalker boxes in his hometown for the first time as a pro after his debut in east London on Saturday, while fellow former Team GB members Callum Smith and Scotty Cardle continue their pro journeys.
