Jazza Dickens says he always knew he would cross paths with Kid Galahad again ahead of their IBF featherweight title fight next month.
The two men will meet for the vacant belt at Matchroom Fight Camp on August 7, on week two of a three-week fight series that is broadcast live on DAZN.
Several MTK Global fighters are also in action on week three on August 14, as Ricards Bolotniks goes up against Joshua Buatsi, Michael McKinson meets Przemyslaw Runowski, Savannah Marshall defends her WBO middleweight title, plus Tasha Jonas also returns.
The two boxers collided back in 2013, with Dickens suffering his first career defeat by way of a stoppage in the tenth round.
Dickens said: “It’s been eight years since the first fight. I always knew it would come again, and I’ve been waiting for it a long time.
“I’ve had losses along the way and I’ve had to build myself back up. There is nothing harder than having to do that, but I’ve worked hard to be here and I’m happy to have this opportunity.
“I need to thank MTK Global, Tony Bellew, DAZN, and Matchroom. Boxing is a conveyor belt, and it’s a blessing. I will take this chance with both hands and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Galahad said: “Whatever happened in the past has happened. Me and Jazza will start where we left off. The first fight was unbelievable, and the second one will be even better.
“I know Jazza personally, he lives the life like me. I just believe I’m better in every department. It’s not personal, but we’ll both go in there to try and take each other’s head off.”
