Dickens faces May in Liverpool on July 12

Jazza Dickens has an ideal IBF European title shot against the talented Nathaniel May on the #MTKFightNight at Liverpool’s Olympia on July 12 – live on the streaming platform ESPN+ in association with Top Rank Boxing.

Dickens (26-3, 11 KOs) will enjoy home advantage against the world-ranked May (20-1, 11 KOs), who fights outside his native Australia for the second time having starred on the #MTKFightNight in Belfast back in October where he defeated Ruslan Berchuk. Dickens is currently on a 4 win fight streak after suffering a loss to Thomas Patrick Ward by technical decision in May 2017.

May has been on a tear and hasn’t lost a match since 2014 winning 16 fights in a row. Dickens, however, will be a step up in terms of competition for him.

Dickens said in the release: “I’m buzzing to have momentum and this activity will bring the best out of me when I step in there on the night.

“MTK Global has done a great job and have been an absolute pleasure to work with. They’re great for boxing because they’re honest, straight-forward and hard-working.

“I’ve had a short rest with my family & friends and now we are ready to go again.”

May added in the release: “Boxing is massive in the UK so to be back there fighting in a title fight is a big deal for me and I’m really excited.”

“I know Jazza is a crafty southpaw and he knows his way around the ring. I’ve got to respect him because if you don’t respect someone like him, you’re in for a shock.”

“This is going to be a great fight for the fans. We can go to war but whatever happens, I’ll be up for the challenge.”

News of a full undercard – featuring some of the city’s top talent – will be announced at a later time.
