Coldwell Boxing are pleased to announce that Sheffield’s Dave Fidler has put pen to paper with the thriving promotional group in a move that will see him managed by the booming Yorkshire outfit. The 35 year old light-middleweight will make his first appearance for Coldwell Boxing on the highly-anticipated “Nightmare Before Christmas” show on 13th December at Ponds Forge Arena in his home city.
Fidler made his professional debut in September 2011 and has since put together an unbeaten record of 8-0-2 (3) in his ten fights. In his last contest in September, Fidler beat Tomasz Mazurkiewicz, who he stopped in the ninth round to win the International Masters light middleweight title.
Fidler will now be trained by Sheffield’s former world title challenger, Ryan Rhodes, who said of Fidler: “He’s not had a long career because he started so late but he is one of the most dedicated boxers that I know. He is a great ticket seller, which is always big in boxing and he will be in a very good place with Dave Coldwell. He’s so dedicated he’s up at five in the morning, every morning for a run of up to six or seven miles and then he goes to work. He’s in the gym straight after work and improving all the time.”
Fidler added, “I’ve already got a decent record but I’m learning new things which can only help me. My style is exciting and I’m a bit of a brawler which is great for the fans but I have been dropped twice. I’m learning to box more and change to the style that Ryan used to box and I think I’m in the perfect place to move on.”
