Dean Powell: I'm Standing Alongside Frank Warren!

By Terence Dooley

Dean Powell, the matchmaker for Frank Warren Promotions, has contacted BoxingScene to dismiss spurious rumours that he will not be involved in the upcoming fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora at London's Upton Park venue on July 14 due to the ongoing dispute between the organisers of the show, who are operating under the Luxembourg Boxing Federation's auspices, and the BBBoC.  Powell will be working with Dereck Chisora come fight night despite claims to the contrary that were posted on boxing forums here in the U.K. on Saturday night and earlier today.

The forum posts in question state that Powell had told a group of FWP fighters that he would not be able to work with them on the night due to the BBBoC's threat to take action against any licence holder who appears on the bill in a working capacity.  Powell, though, informed me that he will be there alongside “Del Boy” and Don Charles as they attempt to score a win over former WBA titlist Haye.

“It is not true that I won't be working, the information is incorrect and I will be working at West Ham in my usual capacity,” said Powell when speaking to BoxingScene.  “I will be working in the corner alongside [Chisora's trainer] Don Charles and also as a cutsman and wrapping hands – I want to make that clear.  My position is this – I will be standing alongside Frank Warren, Don Charles, Dereck Chisora, and all the rest of Frank's fighters and staff.  It is nonsense to say otherwise.  I want it to be corrected.  I'd like to know where people get this 'information' from because it simply isn't true.”

Powell also revealed that Cromer's Liam Walsh, 12-0 (9), will take on Italy's Dominico Urbano, 25-3-1 (10), for the vacant WBO European Super featherweight title on the bill.  It will Walsh's first outing since his memorable win over Paul Appleby in September of last year and the 26-year-old will hope to impress against the 36-year-old former EBU-EU featherweight title-holder.

I'm hoping for a double knockout....both Chisor and Haye could use one.
