Matty Askin believes his strength will be too much for Jon Lewis Dickinson to handle in their cruiserweight contest on Saturday, April 21. The pair collide in a ten rounder for the vacant English championship and an eliminator for Enzo Maccarinelli’s British crown at Oldham Sports Centre. Their 50-50 battle is the chief supporting bout on the card topped by Anthony Crolla’s British lightweight title defence against Derry Mathews.

Matty Askin, dubbed the Assassin, is on a knockout winning run

Unbeaten Askin, 23, said: “Dickinson is going to be awkward and try to nick rounds but he won’t be able to match me for speed and strength. He has some impressive wins, but how much willpower and determination will he have when I take it to him from round one?”

Blackpool’s Askin (13-0-0, 9ko) has been making daily three hour round trips from his home to Hatton Health and Fitness in Hyde sparring many rounds preparing for geordie Dickinson (10-2-0, 3ko).

He added: “I have sparred a ridiculous amount of rounds regularly working with ten to 12 rounds with three different lads. It was quality sparring and the lads I used were all ambitious and threw plenty of shots.”

Other contests on the card include: Stephen Foster Jr v Jose Antonio Elizabeth (6×3 super-featherweight), Jazza Dickins v Yuri Voronin (6×3 super-bantamweight), Lucas Browne v Paul Butlin (6×3 heavyweight), Adam Little v Chris Jenkinson (6×3 welterweight), Tommy Stubbs v Gavin Reid (4×3 bantamweight), Ryan Doyle v Selected Opponent (4×3 featherweight).
