Coach Glyn Rhodes said: “The (Concord Sports Centre, Shiregreen) show is just round the corner from where Dave lives but he may face a bit of ribbing from his workmates. But a win will see Dave win the International Masters light-middleweight title - and that will mean a lot.”

Fidler says his rival looks “half decent” and says a Youtube clip of one of his fights attracted 12,000 hits. See video on this story at
