Standing between Hoo boxer Adam Dingsdale (pictured) and his
first title is the UK’s No.13 ranked fighter Dean Mills – fresh
from a fourth round KO win from his last outing.
Mills comes in to replace Mickey Coveney – who withdrew several

take home the title on Saturday.
"It’s a big fight and if I beat him, then hopefully that will
take me into the top 10," said the man currently ranked 31st.
Mills’ last opponent was former World Boxing Union lightweight
title holder and EBU challenger David Burke.

face a southpaw in Mickey Coveney, it doesn’t matter. Any sparring
is good sparring and it’s all in the bank."
