Frank Warren has won the right to stage James "Jazza" Dickens, 17-1 (5), against "Outlaw" Josh Wale, 16-6-2 (9) for the vacant British Super bantamweight title. Warren won the purse bids on Tuesday night, and BoxingScene understands that the contest will take place early next year.
Liverpool's Dickens contested the same title against Kid Galahad last September (L TKO 10), he picked up a six-threes win over Krzysztof Rogoski in March to get back into contention. The 23-year-old will have to repeal Wales, who drew against Gavin McDonnell for the same title in May.
Wale, 26, has lost to Stuart Hall (L 12 for the Commonwealth bantamweight title in November 2012) and Kid Galahad (L TKO 9 when the WBC International 122lb title in May of the same year) in previous title fights, however the reverses will have only increased the Barnsley-based boxer's desire to win the coveted Lonsdale belt.
