Dalton Smith: “World Championship boxing at Hillsborough’s the goal, so headlining the (Sheffield) arena for the British title is a great milestone along the way,”
“It’s a venue that has seen some huge fights – Naz, Nelson, Hatton and Brook to name a few. Now I feel it’s my turn. Sam is heavy-handed and an awkward southpaw, but I think my best beats his best so that’s what I need to deliver. It’s going to be a right atmosphere!”
