Curtis Woodhouse Inks Promotional With Coldwell Boxing

THE most important week of Curtis Woodhouse’s boxing career just got even bigger, after the exciting footballer-turned-fighter signed a three-year promotional deal with Coldwell Boxing. The move ends uncertainty regarding Woodhouse’s future, allowing him to focus on his British title eliminator with Alfreton’s powerful Dale Miles next Friday (June 8) on the Real Steel show at Rotherham’s Magna Centre, while also confirming Coldwell Boxing’s reputation as the fastest-growing promotional outfit in the game.

“I couldn’t be happier,” beamed Dave Coldwell, Woodhouse’s manager, former trainer and head of Coldwell Boxing. “I came to an amicable agreement with Frank Warren to allow Curtis out of his contract and now we can lay down a detailed plan and structure for his future. “We’re not looking past Dale Miles and I expect their fight to be a good old-fashioned dust-up – maybe a Fight of the Year contender. But if Curtis wins this, the sky’s the limit; TV will love him. Having trained him in the past, I know better than most just how good he is and, more importantly, how much improvement he still has to come.”

Woodhouse cited his long-time bond with Coldwell as a key reason for starting this new chapter in their relationship and agrees with his boss regarding the nature of his crucial battle with Miles. “I’ve worked with Dave for five years in some capacity,” he reflected. “I trust him and he’s always shown faith in me, bringing me back after losing. Coldwell Boxing is getting bigger and bigger and I’m made up to be part of that.
“No disrespect to Dale but neither of us are defensive geniuses, we are both attacking fighters who will hit each other until someone falls down; it’s going to be that type of fight. I’ve always said I want to win a British title and Dale Miles is blocking my path to that chance. He’s a tough kid but I’ll take care of him then target new British champion Darren Hamilton.”

The unmissable Woodhouse-Miles war is the main event of Real Steel, Coldwell Boxing’s highly anticipated show on Friday, June 8 at the Magna in Rotherham. Also on the bill, unbeaten local prospect Nav Mansouri, who recently held his own in sparring with WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi, takes on determined Darren Graham of Aylesbury. Ex-amateur star Hosea Burton makes his third pro start and there are also appearances from Rotherham cruiserweight Karl Bell and unbeaten southpaw duo Daniel Slaney and Jason Cunningham.

There are still tickets available for Real Steel but they are going fast. Go to www.coldwellboxing.com to reserve your place at what could be the show of the year.
