After delivering his home city an epic show back in February, Dave Coldwell returns to Sheffield on May 9th as he aims to better his previous outing with “Unleashed.” With the show only pencilled in the last couple of weeks, Coldwell has been working long hours in ensuring that this effort surpasses that of “Pride of Yorkshire” that was stacked with a cluster of regional derbies.
Local scraps are the order of the day this time around also as Dave Fidler and Lee Noble renew hostilities following the latter’s win last time out. Joining them are Chad Gaynor and Adil Anwar, who provide a compelling welterweight battle which will likely see the winner push on for domestic title opportunities. Rod Smith, impressive against Liam Cameron back in December, receives another stern test as he goes in with fellow unbeaten star, Mark Heffron, in a contest that celebrates the fighting qualities of both young combatants. The show’s promoter is expecting fireworks.
“In terms of build-up, this rivals any show that I’ve ever been involved in,” buzzed Coldwell. “Sometimes you don’t get a straight answer from some promoters and managers but the response I’ve had off people in the industry this week has been fantastic. I’ve made offers to fighters and the people responsible for them and everything has just run smoothly. I hope that continues because this could be a show to be remembered for a long, long time. It’s a massive night’s boxing and I’m over the moon to be putting it on.”
Coldwell added, “I’m looking at the list of fights and I’m seeing so many scenarios of what could potentially happen in the fights. Every single fighter I’ve matched so far has the right to believe that he’s the favourite going in and it’s very rare you get that on shows these days. The planning for this show is still in the early stages and we’ve already got a load of crackers so it’ll be interesting to see what else I can get added to it because I want May 9th to be a truly memorable night.”
