Dale Evans "I'll test Skeete's chin and win British title for Mike Towell"


By Michael J Jones

IN JUST NINE DAYS time the reigning British welterweight champion Bradley Skeete will defend his domestic title against rugged Welshman Dale Evans at the Copper Box Arena, London. In-form ruler Skeete is in the form of his life after notable victories against John Thain and Shayne Singleton. At 29-years-old the 6'1” Penge stylist is arguably in his fighting prime though only a fool would dismiss the potential threat his next challenger will bring on July 8th.

One thing is in Evans' favour which is different from the usual order of play for much of his eighteen pro bouts...

“We've had four weeks notice for this fight which is a change from sometimes mere days” Dale Evans tells Livefight a few days ago. “For the first time in my career I now have a full-time sponsor in Castle Scaffolding Wales so I can be a full-time pro and not have to train and sell tickets around long hours in work.”

Speaking to the stocky Welsh puncher for a while it's quite unbelievable the level he's been competing at when considering the notice he's received while trying to hold down a day job. When facing formidable Sam Eggington two years ago for example, Evans had just ten days notice to face a dangerous fighter who was then British and Commonwealth champion.

After besting the under-trained Evans by decision, Eggington would then surrender his belts to Skeete via points decision. Evans also holds an early decision victory over “The Savage” when the two young fighters competed in a Prizefighter tournament four years ago.

Does the 13-3-2 (4) Welshman take anything away from the contests he and Skeete have shared with Eggington approaching his British title bid?

“Sam Eggington is a tough, tough customer with a hell of a chin” comments the 26 year old of his great rival. “For our rematch he had a twelve week camp and I had to cram my training into ten days. I had to do it as you I couldn't turn down the opportunity but it obviously affected my performance.”

“When Sam fought Skeete I just thought he boxed the wrong fight. He kept coming in to attack in straight lines and you can't afford to do that against someone rangy like Skeete. When Eggington fought Frankie Gavin who was a slick boxer like Skeete, his tactics were perfect and he won the fight comfortably.”

The St Clears fighter also reveals there has been some colourful exchanges on social media ahead of his clash with Skeete between the respective fans of the pugilists.

“Bradley Skeete is tall and rangy but he's no big KO artist like his fans have been saying on Twitter. My fans were defending my chances and then his fans were saying they were making me out to be Golovkin! I'm not blowing my own trumpet but I'm an underrated puncher many people have made the mistake of looking at my record (just four wins inside in eighteen bouts), but I rank myself as one of the biggest punchers in the division.”

“He's a tall lad at the weight (at 6'1” the champion is half-a-foot taller), but I spar middleweights and light-middleweights all the time and they are always shocked when I get through with a good shot. People say about his skills but I spar (gym-mate and current IBF featherweight champion) Lee Selby and he is more skilful and faster than Skeete is.”

“With Skeete he's a good fighter don't get me wrong and I know few will ever have an easy night with him but I feel he's underestimating me. I also don't think he's been in with many punchers like me and his chin hasn't really been tested like I'll be testing it.”

“I don't believe he realises I'll be his toughest test to date.”

Evans turned pro in October 2011 and was unbeaten in his first five (one draw) when entered in Prizefighter. He would best Eggington in his first contest before out-scoring the far-more experienced Mark Thompson in his semi-final bout. The spoils would eventually go to Glenn Foot by a split decision though Evans left Wolverhampton that night with his reputation raised considerably.

Since then the Welsh fighter has not been as active as he would have liked but has beaten men such as Erick Ochieng, former British challenger Adil Anwar and the ill-fated Mike Towell last September. After scoring a stoppage in five rounds, Towell would pass away 24 hours after his thirteenth fight. He was just 25-years-old.

“It's big motivation for me to win the British title in Mike's memory” Evans tells Livefight. “That was the lowest time of my life after Mike died and it was his friends and family and my own that got me through it. Its played on my mind afterwards that it could have been me who died and Mike fighting Skeete for the British title next week.”

“I'm already very focused and driven to win the British title but doubly so to win it for Mike.”

“It's been the biggest frustration in my career that I've not been able to fight as often as I would have liked. I'd happily fight every month if I could but there's not too many shows in Wales and as soon as you go elsewhere to box it's a case of how many tickets you can sell.”

“It affects your motivation a lot as you could be getting ready for a fight date and it gets cancelled so it's harder to get back to training for the next one. I've been doing this since I was nine years old and only a boxer knows the huge sacrifice you have to make to do anything in boxing.”

“That's why I have to beat Skeete; I don't want to go back to the bottom of the ladder and have to start again.”

Is there any concern about facing the 29-1 (12) Londoner in London for the most important fight of his career for the Tony Borg-trained Evans?

“I've fought many times in the away corner and I know full-well if it's close he'll get the decision. If it happens that way it will be hard but I'll just have to accept it but I'm very confident it won't come to that.”

“Since my British eliminator ten months ago I've been in the gym waiting for my chance. With me being a full-time fighter now you'll get to see the best ever Dale Evans. I boxed Kevin McCauley last month in Swansea and it wasn't so much a warm-up but a test of the waters after my fight with Mike Towell.”

“I had to see how I'd cope with being in the ring again. We kept it simple and planned on getting my shots off and not getting hit in return and I won very comfortably. People like McCauley are very tough lads and make it awkward but, for me, it went really well and it was just what I needed.”

Finally I ask what is the best victory so far in Evans' career in his opinion?

“I'd say my win over Erick Ochieng” he replies after a short pause. “It was my first eight-rounder and shown on Sky Sports and he was a good opponent who had just boxed Liam Smith for the British title so he was a fairly big name at the time.”

“I ended up selling 200 tickets so everyone watched the Rugby at the Millennium stadium and then came over to watch my fight (at the Motorpoint Arena) so there was a good crowd and I boxed well to beat him on points live on Sky Sports.”

Dale Evans would like to thank his team, fans and sponsors for their continued support.

Bradley Saunders talks Newcastle return, Garrido disaster and new beginnings


By Michael J Jones

LIVEFIGHT HAS spoken to Sedgefield prospect Bradley Saunders on a number of occasions but a lot has changed since our last interview a couple of years ago. Take a trip back in time 21 months and the Sedgefield star was 12-0 and set to face French hard man Renald Garrido in his first eight-round match.

The fight though proved to be a complete disaster for the former decorated amateur. His brittle hands succumbed to Garrido’s rock-hard head after a few rounds and it was all down-hill from there. With Saunders tiring and powerless to stop the Frenchman’s constant advances, the North East prospect came in head-first to be thrown out in the sixth and lose his unbeaten record in the process.

Following the defeat, subsequent surgery and other outside-the-ring troubles, the former Olympian has thus gone from sure-fire prospect to the fistic “last chance saloon”.

With the above behind him and having benefitted from his first prolonged lay-off from boxing since he was an eight-years-old boy, Livefight spoke to the come-backing fighter ahead of his ring return which is scheduled for June 23rd at the Walker Activity Dome in Newcastle.

“To be totally honest I actually enjoyed being a normal person for a while” admits the 31 year old to Livefight a few days ago. “To be with my family, to do things like go for a meal or go for a drink, was really nice. Some don’t realise but I’ve been doing boxing all my life since I was eight and it’s all-consuming.”

“Eventually though…I became sick of being normal.”

I ask the 12-1 (9) Bradley about that disastrous last match against Garrido way back in September 2015, a defeat which left his reputation seemingly in tatters.

“What a nightmare it was” he sighs after a pause. “I felt I handled him easily the early rounds but my left hand ‘went’ in the third, then my right hand broke in the fourth…can you imagine a footballer trying to play with one leg? That’s just what it was like I had nothing at all to keep him off with.”

“Garrido could tell I was injured and just came after me, and to be fair, I would have done exactly the same in his position.”

Early in the sixth, Saunders got off with some good, clean, shots but none had their usual weight behind them and, each time Saunders would strike, Garrido would come back swiftly and land hard to head and body. More disorganised than hurt, Saunders would suffer his first trip to the canvas when a half-punch/half-slip made him touch down by the ropes.

Once he arose, the bullish Garrido charged. With the seconds ticking down, Saunders dipped low and came up with his head onto the shorter Frenchman’s chin. Garrido reeled back from the foul to bring an instance end to the lively contest as referee Steve Gray threw Saunders out.

“I can’t really explain (the head-butt), I’ve honestly never done anything like that before in my life. I couldn’t hit him back or keep him off so it just happened…it is what it is but, for me, yes I lead with my head but I don’t think it was as blatant as what it was made out to be.”

Amusingly, once the fight was officially called off, Garrido went from slumped over the ropes in apparent agony to running around the ring in wild jubilation.

“Since then, I’ve had operations to both hands and a good rest so I’m hoping they’ll hold up and last for the rest of my career” concludes Bradley hopefully.

To show Garrido is no mug he recently gave Frankie Gavin a good test over eight rounds before being edged 77-75 by the former world title challenger. The teak-tough contender has also yet to be stopped in 34 professional bouts to date.

Back to Bradley Saunders and, aside from his first defeat and surgery, the former amateur stand-out has also had to navigate a lengthy court case which finally concluded the end of last year. Saunders alongside two other men were accused of blackmail but the case was eventually thrown out due to lack of evidence.

“It was an absolute joke, an absolute pile of rubbish” comments Saunders about the false allegations made against him. “A place like here in the North East, people do well and they seem to get targeted with people wanting to bring them down. When it got to court, the judge couldn’t believe what he was hearing and threw the case out straight away.”

“It was ridiculous but I’ve had things like that go on all through my life and thank God it’s behind me now.”

Saunders makes his belated return next week against an opponent to be determined. The fight is made at 10st 10lbs and will be a six-rounder. Saunders is now based in Essex and is being coached by Peter Sims after formerly working with the team in MGM Marbella in Spain.

“The fights made (at 150lbs) and that’ll be good for my first one as I didn’t want to go straight into killing myself making weight” reasons the Sedgefield body-snatcher. “I’ll see how I feel but I’ll probably carry on at welterweight but, if the weight falls off me, maybe I’ll return to light-welterweight.”

“There’s no opponent yet but I’ve heard a few names bandied about. I leave that to my team and just concentrate on the training and making weight. Welterweight is a good division and there’s a lot of good fights to be made there so either division would be fine.”

“I’ve had excellent sparring for this one too, I’ve done some rounds with (former English champion) Tyler Goodjohn and (8-0 prospect) Ted Cheeseman. I also did some work recently with Conor Benn (Nigel Benn’s son who is currently 6-0), which was good too. I’m not going to say who won what as its just sparring but it was all competitive and very good quality work.”

Another bonus from his extended time away from boxing, the former WBO InterContinental champion has also developed his own road maintenance company which specialises in the resurfacing and marking of car parks and other similar facilities.

“My company is called ‘SLS Road Maintenance’ and it keeps me busy day-to-day and gives me the opportunity to travel around the country and meet new people. We’re currently in our second year and things are really looking up for the company as we are building up a strong portfolio of clients including Amazon, Heathrow Airport and The Metro centre.”

“I’m hoping the business can continue to grow and serve as a stable career long after my pro boxing days are behind me.”

And a final word about June 23rd?

“I’d just like to thank Peter Sims my trainer and all of my team and the supporters. The support I get is unbelievable, everything that’s happened and they’ve stayed loyal and got their tickets so I can’t thank them enough.”

“I’ll get this fight out of the way, then I’m off to Ibiza two weeks after on my stag before getting married on August 18th. Me and my partner Stephanie have been together since we were 13 so boxing will be put on hold for a couple of months and then I’ll be back to it.”

“I didn’t want to be an old bitter man one day and say to myself ‘I could have done this or that’. I’m going to give it one more try and see how I get on.”

Boxing can provide a fighter with a bizarre journey with multiple endings. For Saunders, as a former ABA champion and World amateur Bronze medallist, he always seemed destined to be a pro British champion at the very least. The journey was derailed nearly two years ago against Garrido but two or three victories will proceed to erase that memory from fight fans.

Saunders has the amateur pedigree, punching power and talent to still find success in pro boxing…provided those hands hold up.

Blackledge Unfazed by Denmark Danger as he faces Menacing Mock


By Michael J Jones

LANCASHIRE’S Luke Blackledge has made a career out of taking insanely-tough assignments. Following a career on the unlicenced circuit, “Robbo” took on all comers as he sought to make a name for himself in pro boxing.

It is a credit to him and trainer Alex Matvienko that he has come through several testing moments in his career to still be fighting in championship class. Following his last title contest; a brutal knock-out loss to world-rated Scouse puncher Callum Smith, Blackledge is heading to Denmark to face long-time danger-man Lolenga Mock.

Yes, you did read that last name right…

Lolenga Mock is probably best remembered for flooring future cruiserweight and heavyweight champion David Haye way back in 2003. The Kinshasa-born Mock was considered little more than a blown-up super-middleweight but gave Haye all he could handle before being controversially stopped in the fourth.

After having Haye, in just his seventh fight, all at sea and down from a shot to the temple, Mock was close to scoring another knock-down in the fourth but walked into a tremendous right uppercut. Whilst Haye could barely stand straight after his trip to the canvas, Mock got up calmly and held his hands up to continue but the ref unbelievably stopped the fight.

How different the David Haye story might have been if not for that horrendous call from the referee…

Fast-forward to 2017 and Mock is now 45-years-old but, like boxing legends such as Bernard Hopkins and Archie Moore, appears still capable of producing a high level of boxing despite his advanced years. Now 39-14-1 (13) and still in superb shape, Mock is on an eight-fight winning streak and has recently beaten respected opposition such as (former Prizefighter winner) Patrick Mendy and American Derek Edwards (a knock-out victor against Badou Jack a few years back).

It looks a very hard match for Blackledge but, talking to Livefight a few days ago, the bout unsurprisingly holds no fear for the former Commonwealth super-middleweight champion.

“Mock is 45 but the worst mistake I can make is thinking he’s just an old man” Blackledge comments of his June 17th opponent. “Yes he’s 45 but he’s still dangerous and can hit like a mule. He’s still highly-ranked and it will be a very hard fight.”

The 23-3-2 (8) puncher was talking over the phone from camp in Germany where he is currently engaging in valuable training and sparring with former world light-heavyweight champion Jürgen Braehmer and current WBA super-middleweight ruler Tyrone Zeuge.

“It’s been very good here in Germany, we’ve trained and sparred every day and I’m here with my coach Alex (Matvienko) and (gym-mate) Jack Flatley. This is the last hard week of training before the fight and, on the same night I’m fighting, Tyrone Zeuge is also fighting (against veteran Brit Paul Smith.”

At this point I admit that I actually know little of Zeuge despite his world champion status. I ask Luke how good a fighter the German is?

“He’s very good, he has good timing on his shots and can move and whack a bit. He’s also got good distance. I see him beating Smith but Smith always has a punchers’ chance with that left hook of his.”

The Clitheroe bruiser has had mixed fortunes in his career this last twelve months. Last May, he began his 2016 campaign with a routine stoppage of Ishmael Tetteh to complete the third defence of his Commonwealth belt after impressive distance wins over Liam Cameron and Lee Markham respectively.

With a British title shot against Callum Smith looming, the super-middleweight then had a near miss against big-hitting journeyman Elvis Dube in what was meant to serve as a routine warm-up.

Dube doesn’t win many but has a hellacious right-hand when he chooses to use it. In the opening minute-and-a half, Blackledge started well behind the jab against his shorter opponent before disaster struck.

As the taller man was just starting to open up, Dube thudded a massive right flush on the chin to shockingly leave Blackledge in a heap.

“I’ll admit now that was a heavy knock-down and I was ‘gone’. I got lazy and switched off for a moment and that was it.”

The stricken fighter hauled himself up from the canvas with glassy eyes but bravely saw out the crisis (before Elvis could leave the building). Dube never managed to repeat his early success and Blackledge took the spoils by a clear 58-55 margin.

“I learned a lot from that fight and, if I’m taking positives from it, I managed to survive and still came out with the win. Also, Dube doesn’t win many but he’s dropped loads of lads in sparring and also in a lot of his defeats he decked them so he’s got some power there.”

After the near-disaster against Dube, Blackledge was then deemed a massive underdog against the tall, powerful and unbeaten British champion Callum Smith. The two would collide last December in Manchester and didn’t prove the formality many predicted beforehand for “Mundo”.

“Against Dube I took a liberty but I knew with Callum Smith one mistake could spell the end so I had a much different mind-set before that fight. I felt we had a good game-plan but we couldn’t execute it as we wanted because the ref’ kept stopping me from working inside.”

“I got so far in the fight and realised I wasn’t winning rounds so just went for broke and got caught.”

Smith, as his custom, started quickly and dropped Luke in the third. Blackledge had to use all of his toughness to stay in the contest as he had to endure some torrid moments. He was deducted a point for holding in the seventh but rallied to have one of his best rounds in the ninth.

Entering the tenth round, Smith was clearly ahead though the fight had gone far further than most had anticipated. As Blackledge moved forward to unload, Smith beat him to the punch with a bone-crunching left hook to end matters suddenly and decisively.

There were worrying scenes after the fight’s conclusion as Luke was put into the recovery position and then given oxygen as a precaution. Thankfully he exited the contest with no serious injury and strongly disagrees with the suggestion he should have been pulled out of the fight sooner.

“Callum Smith is an absolute beast and if I’d have been in with any other British fighter I’d have become British champion that night. I lost to a future world champion and, I’ll tell you this, the day after the fight all I had was two little black eyes and I felt fine.”

“People talk shit, why would Alex have stopped the fight? I was losing yes but not taking much cleanly; both times he hit me cleanly I went over. That was my world title fight and I would have been so disappointed if it would have been stopped before that. As far as I’m concerned there was no reason at all to have stopped it any sooner.”

For the winner Smith, world title glory beckons as he faces talented American Anthony Dirrell on September 9th for the vacant WBC title.

“I honestly think Callum Smith has a chance with any fighter on the planet as he’s just got that freakish power, world-class timing and he’s also big and strong. I believe he will win and become the WBC champion.”

Following his heroic stand against Smith and subsequent warm up last month (a KO of Olegs Fedotovs in Bolton), Blackledge is now set for battle-hardened Lolenga Mock in Denmark. The 26 year old has boxed in Denmark twice previously; in 2012 he knocked out the vastly more-experienced Mads Larsen before returning the following year to drop a decision to Swedish light-heavyweight Erik Skoglund.

“I’ve been there twice before and I get a bit of support over there in Denmark and some Danish fans have been wishing me luck” reveals “Robbo”. “I know it won’t be easy but I’ve just got to do everything I possibly can to get the win. It’s worked out perfectly really, I’ve had a warm-up, then a great couple of weeks in Germany and then this big opportunity against Mock.”

Mock was always known for being rugged with a cast-iron jaw (only Haye has stopped him in 54 pro fights) and good power. Coming off a brace of victories it appears the aging long-time contender has not diminished far from the danger-man he has always been.

“He’s still got that power” acknowledges Luke once more. He was just nine months old when Mock made his pro debut in 1991. “He dropped Haye, he dropped Skoglund so he can hit but it’s not like he can possibly hit any harder than Callum Smith! I’m just lucky I’ve got a head like concrete!”

With no major backing throughout his seven year career and often reduced to taking on thankless fights on short notice, does it ever occur to Blackledge he has never really got the credit he deserves despite taking on the hardest fights available for most of his 28 bout career?

“That’s just how boxing works” sighs the Lancashire road warrior. “My view is you get out of it what you put in and I’m working very hard to achieve my goals and I will get my shot. Once I come through Mock I’ll be in the top twenty or thirty in the world and primed for boxing for the European title.”

Lolenga Mock vs Luke Blackledge will feature on June 17th at the Ceres Arena, Aarhus, Denmark. No title on the line as we were going to press in the intriguing ten-rounder.

Luke Blackledge would like to thank his loyal supporters, team and his sponsors AJ Wood for their continued support.

Lane Shrugs off Terror Threat to claim upset win "I just had to block it all out"


By Michael J Jones

THE RECENT TERRORIST attack at the Manchester Arena shocked the nation and the world. A lone, evil, individual representing ISIS sunk to new lows as children, attending an Ariana Grande concert, were murdered and seriously injured by a bomb in one of the worst terror incidents to be carried out on UK soil.

While the nation mourned and demanded vengeance, one man was forced to put such notions to one side as he was scheduled to box in Manchester mere days after the tragic event. Five days on from the vile atrocities in Manchester, Ashley Lane was to take on Paul “The Spartan” Economides at the Bowlers Arena over six rounds.

Just a stone's throw from the Manchester Arena, Bowlers is a hotbed for boxing talent in the North West but, for promoter Kieran Farrell and all the boxers on the bill, it was a case of “business as usual”.

“I got the call to fight Economides just days beforehand and because my trainer Chris Sanigar was working in Wales*, I actually travelled up to Manchester alone” Bristol’s Ash Lane reveals to Livefight this week. “I had absolutely no concerns (about the potential terror threat) as I was fully focused on the fight and, in boxing, that’s what a fighter has to do.”

*Sanigar cornered Craig Kennedy against Matty Askin the previous night in Cardiff.

“You could tell the security was tighter than usual (at the venue) and many in the crowd were a little tense which is understandable, but overall, everyone was very nice during my stay. I knew what had gone on but I just had to block all of it out as I had a fight to win.”

And win he did, scoring an upset six-round decision over the pre-fight favourite by a slender 58-57 margin after a torrid contest. Considering Economides was the naturally bigger man, higher ranked and had completed a full camp ahead of the match (instead of the few days Lane had to prepare), the victory was an impressive one for Lane who is far better than his 9-8-2 (1) record suggests.

To add even further accolade to his latest win, this was also Lane’s second ring success inside of just two weeks.

“I boxed a kid named Thomas Kindon in Leeds who was 10-0 coming in” continues the 26 year old bantamweight contender. “I didn’t know too much about him before the fight but he didn’t have anything at all to worry me with and, not to sound disrespectful, but it was a very easy fight for me and I thought I won every round (taking the spoils by 59-55).”

“I was winning handily and, in the fourth, I even started doing a bit of show-boating and trash-talking. Chris Sanigar didn’t like that one bit and gave me a ticking off. They gave him one round I think it was just a sympathy round I really didn’t have any concerns about the decision.”

“After that Chris (Sanigar) told me to take a few days off which I did, then I did a light work-out on the Thursday and the next day I got told I might be boxing the following week!”

“I kept on at Chris about the fight as I didn’t want to starve myself unnecessarily but he kept saying ‘be ready’, the fight got confirmed on the following Tuesday to face Economides at 8st 12. After that I knew I had to just concentrate on the fight.”

Welsh puncher Economides was a formidable opponent on paper for the Midlands Area champion. At 20-6 coming in, the “Spartan” could boast of being a former WBF champion whose only defeat in recent years was in a thriller against West Midlands star Sean Davis. Before that close decision loss the 30 year old Economides had won seven on the bounce and had competed in the higher super-bantamweight division though none of this appeared to faze the underrated Lane.

“I knew Economides a little bit as we had sparred years ago at Errol Johnson’s gym in Birmingham and I knew it would be a hard fight and he was even tougher than I expected. The first two rounds we went toe-to-toe, I picked him off in the third but we went back to slugging in the fourth.”

“After four rounds, Chris had me ahead and so did the writer from Boxing News but I couldn’t tell (who was ahead), as I just felt it was very tight. The last two rounds I boxed, moved and picked him off with good hooks and uppercuts and I believe those two rounds won me the fight.”

“He was visibly upset after the fight and so were his supporters and I can’t blame them for that, but I just feel I had that bit of extra finesse and did the cleaner work. I would have been just as upset if I’d have lost because, when it’s that close, it’s hard to accept when you’ve put so much into a fight and come away with nothing.”

“I’d love to do it all again maybe with a title on the line I’d be up for that if he wanted the chance to get revenge.”

For the “Flash” though the future looks bright after two eye-catching wins on the spin. The Bristolian’s record is littered with big domestic names and he welcomes the chance to mix it with the best once more in the coming months.

“Obviously I’m not certain what will be next but I am now back in the top ten and the people above me are guys like former world champion Stuart Hall and reigning champions like Lee Haskins and Jamie McDonnell and there’s a few who have recorded wins over me like Josh Wale and Ryan Farrag.”

“I still think I nicked my last fight with Wale and I would welcome another rematch as I really think I’d do a number on him. I would also rematch Farrag if it was offered. I’ve got a cut eye now which needs to heal but after that I’ll fight anyone. I’d face any man for the English title; it’d probably be someone unbeaten but like I always say records are for DJ’s!”

Ashley would like to thank his loyal supporters, team and sponsors Besley Hill Estate Agents for their continued support.
