Background

Matchroom Fight Camp returns with three back-to-back weekends (July 31, August 7 and August 14) as game-changing global five-year deal with DAZN begins in the UK.

World title contenders Kid Galahad and Jazza Dickens finally meet in a rematch, almost eight years on from their first thrilling fight in September 2013, with the Sheffield slickster coming out on top to claim the vacant British super-bantamweight title.

Liverpool's Dickens has been in superb form over the past two years, with excellent victories over long-reigning British featherweight champion Ryan Walsh, Leigh Wood and Carlos Ramos seeing him win the Golden Contract tournament. He is currently unbeaten in his last eight fights, which includes four consecutive KOs against foreign fighters, followed by four points victories in championship fights - two IBF European, followed by two WBO European featherweight title clashes over 10 rounds.

Galahad’s last outing came in February 2020 where he stopped Claudio Marrero, while he also challenged for the IBF featherweight title against Warrington in 2019 and came agonisingly close to becoming a world champion.

Derry Mathews-trained Dickens' world title tilt came against Guillermo Rigondeaux in 2016 - the Cuban forced him to retire after round two, suffering a broken jaw.

 

Quotes

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.”

 

Predictions

Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “It's an intruiging clash of styles and, although many would automatically favour Galahad, especially going into the contest one-up over Dickens, it's the underdog who is carrying the best momentum into this world championship clash. His fit, energetic style could see him take an early lead over the notoriously slow starter, Galahad. I really like Jazza, I think he's great guy and a fantastic fighter, he was a joy to watch in the Golden Contract tournament. He does everythinng so well, but I've got this feeling that Galahad is going to be that more slick and elusive to cleverly bag the rounds with his eyecatching style. I think it'll be another close fight with Galahad just edging the decision on points."
