Somebody is going down: Curtis

Have your say

BOXER Curtis Woodhouse has suggested that promoter Dave Coldwell dispenses with the need for judges in his British title eliminator at the Magna, Rotherham, on June 8.

“Dave should save a few bob and scrap the judging panel” he said of his fight against Derbyshire southpaw Dale Mills.

“This is a fight that will not go the distance.

“Between us we have 28 wins, 20 by knockout.

“You don’t have to be a genius. This won’t go to points. One of us is going to be KOd.”

Woodhouse, clearly, thinks he has the better chance of surviving the night’s work on his feet.

“I have dedicated five years to getting to this level.

“I have always said my aim was to become British champion. Mills will have to nail me to the canvas before I will lose this.”

The light welterweight scrap follows’ Mills’ single defeat in a 13-fight career. He lost to Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse in February.

“He lost because of a really bad cut after a (third round) clash of heads, so in my book that doesn’t really count” said the former Sheffield United footballer.

“Mills is a good fighter but I am in great shape and I know what I have to do.”

Woodhouse is clearly ready for combat and wants the public to know.

Yesterday, he tweeted: “Just finished my run, I’ve had enough of training now, I’m ready to fight.”
