What Spencer’s doing hasn’t been done in this country – this kind of success, this kind of fervour, this kind of passion – for about 30 years because once tv came on the scene, tv just robbed the game of soul, TV gave you so much money you didn’t have to put on competitive fights, tv gave you so much money you didn’t care if anyone came through the door. Tv gave you so much money you didn’t have to go out and sell it to people who cared…This guy Spencer Fearon, he’s a throwback.”Steve Bunce.

DERRY MATHEWS has secured the fight he craved after Scott Lawton agreed to a second meeting.

The vacant IBO International lightweight title will be on the line on January 22 when the pair renew hostilities at the Liverpool Olympia.

In the immediate aftermath of Mathews’ valiant defeat in the Prizefighter final last month he told promoter Stephen Vaughan revenge over Lawton was what he desired.

Vaughan not only delivered Lawton – who officially signed up for the fight yesterday afternoon – but also an IBO title shot.

It was Lawton who sent Mathews into early retirement last year with a sixth round TKO win but now on the road to redemption, the Liverpool man wants to settle old scores.

“After Prizefighter I spoke to Stephen Vaughan and he made the fight,” said Mathews (25-5)

“I could’ve picked anyone in the world but I owe Scott a win.

“In that last fight I didn’t perform as I can do, I was at 50% of the real me that night. But I’m confident I can get the win this time round.”

The ‘Now or Neva’ bill in the New Year also features a host of up and coming local talent.

Jazza Dickens’ long awaited debut will come at the Olympia after he signed a promotional contract with Hatton Promotions.

Everton Red Triangle’s Kevin Satchell gets a third pro outing, Steve Harkin fights again along with Joe Tonks, Jason Brough, Andy Keates and Anthony Paul Davies.

Tickets are available from the box office on 0151 263 6633.
