Big shout to Sean 'Masher' Dodd tonight. Stepped right up to the plate and caused a huge upset by beating Gary Buckland and getting to do it on Sky Sports 1. He was meant to be on the undercard in a 6 rounder but then stepped in late to face the much more travelled, more fancied and definitely more experienced Buckland who I think was meant to be fighting Scott Cardle originally.
If anyone from the Wirral knows me local The Willows, well, his Aunty runs it. She always banging on about him and pushing his fights but to be honest I've always not really been interested or inadvertently turned a blind eye.
I am interested now though
#bandwagon. To be fair the lad done very, very well and now unbelievably gets a shot at Scott Cardle for a British title in November I think. What a difference a week makes. His interview after the fight was top drawer too and getting lots of praise on Twitter if you search for Sean Masher Dodd.
