Ajisafe vs. Dickinson Showdown Promises Fireworks

London - Glow, Bluewater will be the stage for the first ever MaxiNutrition Knockout final on Saturday October 4th when British Light Heavyweight champion Bob Ajisafe takes on Travis Dickinson, the current English champion.

The fight promoted by Hennessy Sports will be shown live and exclusive on Channel 5.

The successful knockout tournament has already seen both finalists in 2 fights of the year and the final between Ajisafe and Dickinson has all the ingredients to produce yet another one.

Ajisafe started his route to the final in a thrilling points win over former European, British and Commonwealth champion Dean Francis back in March and then he stopped Southern Area champion Leon Senior in 5 rounds at Leeds Town Hall in May.

Dickinson’s first fight in his quest to reach the final saw him knocking down the former European champion Danny McIntosh in the 1st round and then twice in the 3rd before the fight was eventually stopped towards the end of that round.

Then came the rocky style performances from Dickinson and brave Matty Clarkson in what was the pick of the semi finals at Leeds Town Hall.  From the first bell both came out fighting and both put everything on the line and after hitting the canvas 3 times each the referee decided that Clarkson was unable to continue due to a cheek injury and halted the fight in the sixth and Dickinson confirmed his spot in the final.

Promoter Mick Hennessy said “After the brilliant MaxiNutrititon semi-finals, I’m looking forward to the final just as much as any other boxing fan, this has been a great tournament for British boxing and now we have a worthy final to finish it off.

“In my opinion the semi-final between Dickinson & Clarkson should be fight of the year worldwide not just domestically!”
