Dale Evans: We’ll see how good Mike Towell is

Chris Glover 26/09/2016

Dale Evans has had the best preparation of his career as he winds down in camp ahead of his showdown with Dundee’s ‘Iron’ Mike Towell this coming Thursday evening.

Towell has steamrolled 11 opponents with 8 not seeing the final bell on his way to a British title eliminator clash with Wales’ Evans this coming Thursday evening at Glasgow’s Radisson Hotel.

The Gary Lockett trained man has not cut any corners in camp as he prepares for the big punching Dundee native.

“I’m feeling really good. the preparation for this fight has been perfect. I’ve been able to go full time in camp thanks to my sponsors and it’s really helped.”

“My trainer Gary (Lockett) and I have had time to work on a lot in this camp. I travel an hour and forty minutes to the gym daily but it’s been made so much easier as I’ve been able to go full time. This will definitely be the best Dale Evans on the night.”

Evans has shared the ring with some top draw fighters in Sam Eggington, Larry Ekundayo and Erick Ochieng, whom have all held respected titles. ‘Big Boy’ Evans believes that this could be a telling factor come fight night.

“Towell hasn’t boxed at the level I have. I take nothing away from his wins but I believe I have operated at a far higher level.”

“Mike has some similarities to Sam Eggington in that they both come forward but Sam is far more experienced and has had better opposition. I believe that will show.”

“This is Mike’s first step up, it’s not mine. So we’ll see how good Towell is.”

Both fighters are full of confidence coming into their British title final eliminator clash and Evans has some stern words for his Scottish counterpart on September 29.

“If he can’t back his confidence up he’s going to look like a fool. Everyone knows what you can expect from me, I do my talking in the ring.”

The winner of Thursday night’s contest will go on to box for the coveted Lord Lonsdale Challenge belt currently held by London’s Bradley Skeete who defends against Shayne Singleton on October 22 in Cardiff. Wales native Evans will be a keen spectator of the clash if he is to topple Towell on Thursday evening however insists he is not looking past his Scottish opponent.

“I’m not looking past Thursday night at all. It’s every fighters dream to win a Lord Lonsdale belt.”

“I’m up for giving anyone who’s got the British title a fight, whether it be Skeete or Singleton.”
