Patrick Fielder says having former professional boxing champion David Walker in his corner will give him the edge he needs when the twenty nine year old personal trainer from Bexleyheath in Kent challenges Tadworth’s Lee Dalglish for the coveted Queensbury Boxing League Welterweight title on Saturday September 17th at the exclusive Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.
Making his second appearance in the league back in June Fielder ended the unbeaten run of Mitcham’s Lee Cannon with a commanding performance to secure his shot at the title, and with his sights now firmly set on claiming the belt he will be looking to make it a hat trick of victories on the 17th when he collides with the flashy Dalglish.
Fielder commented “ In my last two fight I’ve gone in there and done what I needed to do and got the wins. This next fight promises to be my toughest to date but I’m working towards being the fittest I’ve ever been and I intend to be in great shape come fight night”
The man opposing Fielder for the title enters the contest off the back of two very impressive performances of his own claiming the fight of the night accolade back in March with a punch perfect display over Croydon’s awkward Rodney James, and with Fielder watching from ringside on that night, he knows fully well what will be required to emerge victorious.
“After watching Lee and Rodney fight I know what I’m up against if I am to get this belt. It was a very competitive fight and Lee looks like a classy operator so I am going to need to be at my best to beat this guy. Having Dave Walker in my corner is a massive help and I look at him like a brother so I know he’s going to give me all the advice I need to win the fight and become champion”
With Fielders and Dalglish meeting in just over 10 days time in this mouthwatering title showdown the stage looks perfectly set to produce real fireworks when the pair collide.
