JAZZA DICKENS: "I'LL BE MORE SENSIBLE AGAINST WALE"

JAMES 'JAZZA' DICKENS says he cannot wait to return to the ring and put right the mistakes he made in his British super-bantamweight title clash with Kid Galahad two months ago.

The plucky Scouser defends his English title against Barnsley's tough Josh Wale at the Robin Park Centre in Wigan on December 14.

Dickens built up a steady lead on the judges' cards against Kid Galahad, real name Barry Awad, before running out of steam and being stopped in the tenth round.

He admits he needs to conserve more of his energy in this next contest and go back to the silky style which earned him a reputation as one of the country's best young boxers.

"I don't want to make any excuses because Barry was very good on the night and I take my hat off to him, but I know what went wrong," Dickens, 16-1 (5 KOs), said.

"When I watched the fight back I thought 'why am I moving so much?' I think I was too eager to please the crowd. I wanted the British public to see me as their fighter, a people's fighter.

"I've learned lots from that fight and I know to be a lot more sensible this time. If I didn't take positives from it, there'd be no point in me boxing."

Despite September's setback, Jazza believes a win over Wale will put him back on track for another shot at the coveted Lonsdale belt in 2014.

"The sooner I can get another shot at the British the better," he said. "That title is still part of my short-term goals, so once this fight is out of the way, I hope I'll get fight for it again.

"I'm a very busy fighter so it won't take me long to get back in the frame and if Kid Galahad has still got the belt, I'll fight him again."

London - Hennessy Sports would like to take this opportunity to advise the public of the Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury meet and greet.
 
The undefeated former British, Commonwealth and Irish heavyweight champion, Tyson, will be available to sign autograph cards and take pictures, alongside his younger cousin and first British fighter to win a Gold medal at the AIBA Youth Boxing Championships at super heavyweight, Hughie.
 
The young heavyweight stars will then be entering Glow to support James DeGale MBE as he defends his WBC Silver super middleweight title against tough American 'Dangerous' Dyah Davis.
