Jazza Finally Gets World Title Shot

Jazza Dickens has at last been given a date for his maiden world title shot against former opponent Kid Galahad.

The fight takes place on August 7th at Matchroom Boxing's fight camp, almost eight years after Dickens suffered his first professional defeat at the hands of the Sheffield fighter in 2013.

Jazza, who is working on an initiative to help families of addiction with Maverick Stars Trust, believes the time is right for him to finally get his hands on major honours.

"By fighting the only man to have me on the floor, that redemption story is something that makes it more exciting," he said.

"I'll show my family and supporters what it takes, the hard work it takes to turn something around like that and believe in yourself. If you keep believing in yourself, you can do anything you want."
