Coldwell Boxing’s March 8th show at Manchester’s
Bowlers venue has received a significant boost this week after a number of
high-quality bouts were added to the show. Already featuring the return of
local favourite, Craig Watson, and the intriguing Northwest derby between home
fighter, Hosea Burton, and Liverpool’s Carl Dilks, Dave Coldwell has been
working tirelessly to add even more interest to the event and his industry has
been rewarded.

Curtis Woodhouse’s English title defence against Shayne
Singleton
, originally scheduled for February 22nd, has been added to
this card following a minor hand injury to the former and will now serve as
main event. Providing chief support will be a battle of Greater Manchester
welterweights as former British champion, David Barnes, makes his long awaited
return from injury when he faces the undefeated Rick Godding in a fascinating
crossroads clash. Coldwell is anticipating action of the highest order.
 
“The week got off to bad start with the news of Curtis’
injury but everyone has worked hard to make the best out of a bad situation and
we’re over the moon with the end result. This is a show that is going to be
filled with 50-50 fights from top to bottom and I’m certain that every fight has
the potential to deliver.
It’s good to be getting along with other promoters in
this game because that is how the best fights are made. Steve Wood is the
promoter of Carl Dilks, Rick Godding and Shayne Singleton so I’m sure there
will be some banter between me and Steve during the build-up. I know my guys
are hungry and I expect the same from Steve’s fighters so it really promises to
be an explosive show.”
 
Coldwell added, “This is an event that I know Manchester
will come out and support because there’s a lot of local interest on the show
and they’re all going to be involved in fantastic scraps. Barnes v Godding is a
fight that has it all and the winner of it will be in a great position to push
on and challenge for titles later in the year. I’ve had the pleasure of putting
on some great shows at the Bowlers and I know how loud the atmosphere can get
in there but I’m expecting that to reach new levels on March 8th.
