Hometown hero Jazza Dickens is honoured to be representing his city of Liverpool on tonight’s huge MTK Fight Night card when he takes on Nathaniel May for the IBF European featherweight title.
Dickens (26-3, 11 KOs) faces May (21-1, 12 KOs) at the Eventim Olympia live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and also live on iFL TV, and he plans on doing his loyal supporters proud with a big performance.
Dickens said: “There is no greater motivation to me than fighting in Liverpool. There’s so many good memories I have and so much love I have for the people of Liverpool.
“Everyone who is coming to the fight and has paid their hard earned money. I know it’s expensive to come, so for the support all I can say is thank you for believing me.
“When I go in that ring, I’m not going in with the mind of a 28-year-old man in the prime of my life, I go in with the mindset of a 12-year-old boy with a hunger of being World champion. I have to make that kid proud.
“I have to thank MTK Global for the opportunity too. If you’ve never seen me before, I’m always in exciting fights. You’ll see a world class Jazza tonight. I’m happy to put that out there because that’s how I feel. It’s not me having a big ego, it’s just how I truly feel.”
Dickens vs. May is part of a massive MTK Fight Night that also features the return of four-time World title challenger Martin Murray (37-5-1, 17 KOs), as he goes up against Portuguese champion Rui Manuel Pavanito (10-8-1, 5 KOs), plus former world champion Terry Flanagan (33-2, 13 KOs) makes his long-awaited comeback, facing Jonas Segu (19-8-2).
Ex-Olympic star Tasha Jonas (7-1, 5 KOs) takes on Bec Connolly, while the likes of Sam Maxwell, Ged Carroll, John Quigley and Craig Glover make up a huge undercard in Liverpool.
