Dallas Steps Up In Class
Tom Dallas will face his first American opponent later this month.
The Chatham banger (14-0) bids to send his local fans home happy when he faces American Zack Page (21-34-2) on Friday May 13 at Medway Park Leisure Centre, Gillingham.
Page has a reputation as one of the most durable fighters on the heavyweight circuit and in December lasted the eight round distance against Tyson Fury.
Promoter Frank Maloney said: “I am not even bothered about Tyson because I look after the best two heavyweight prospects in Britain, David Price and Tom. “They are the future of the division and like Pricey proved last week when he knocked out Raphael Butler, Tom will be looking to make a statement.
“Some of the sparring between Tom and Pricey is better than most heavyweight fights but they would only fight each other if something special was on the line.”
Page, 37, has been stopped just three times and last year shocked Mike Tyson conqueror, Kevin McBride - outpointing the Irishman over eight rounds.
Dallas’ fight eight rounder is part of a bill headed by Chislehurst’s Sam Webb (17-1) who defends his British light-middleweight title against Manchester’s Prince Arron (20-3-1).
Also on the card being televised live by Sky Sports, Blackpool’s Brian Rose (16-1-1) makes the first defence of his English light-middleweight crown against Swanley’s unbeaten Martin Welsh (9-0).
