Ive come back with a new lease of life, I’ve got a great team, great family behind me and it’s onwards and upwards.” – Derry Mathews.
Putting that disappointment behind him ‘Dirty Derry’ will now defend his English title in a Merseyside derby against Kirby’s Stephen ‘Jenko’ Jennings at The Greenbank Sports Centre in Liverpool, July 30, on a show promoted by Stephen Vaughan www.vaughanboxing.tv – With a fight against Rees to be re-arranged, if he takes care of Jennings.
Derry also speaks about his inclusion in Prizefighter, his new found love for the game, the influence new coach Oliver Harrison has had on the second part of his career and the hard decision to leave life long coach George Vaughan at the ‘Solly’ boxing club in Liverpool.
