The door to the big-time has opened for Adam Dingsdale following his impressive win on Friday night.

The 26-year-old from Hoo is hoping the Southern Area belt is just the beginning.

An impressive points win over fancied Floyd Moore in Portsmouth will have made many sit up and take notice.

“It was the best fight I’ve been involved in and I know many said it was the best they had seen,” said the lightweight boxer.

“I am over to moon to win. It’s such a prestigious belt and I am so happy. It’s a big achievement and now I’m looking to fight for the English or even the British title.

“Anything could happen now and I could have opened a lot of doors.”

Dingsdale turned pro less than three years ago and has already fought for a European title, having stood in at late notice. Despite the lack of preparation, he only lost on points to Stephen Ormond. It remains his only pro defeat.

He said: “I’m going to see what gets offered now.

“It looks like my next fight could be live on Box Nation TV and so things are moving forward for me.

“Everyone said how good the Moore fight was and that it was a shame it wasn’t on TV. It deserved to be.”

Read Andrew Fairley's report from the Portsmouth's Mountbatten Centre.

The quality of the fight means there is already talk of a re-match but Dingsdale is not so sure.

Dingsdale said: “I want to move on now. If a re-match happened, then all that would happen would be that I’d beat him more comfortably next time."
