Derby based banger Ovill McKenzie begins his second reign as Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion against Liverpool’s rejuvenated domestic veteran Tony Dodson on Friday at Manchester's Bowlers Exhibition Centre. The show, promoted by Frank Warren in association with VIP Promotions, will be televised live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546).

 

Fresh from a 15 second stoppage over Jeff Evans in November to capture the Commonwealth title, McKenzie hopes this time he has more success facing a Scouser following a points loss to Tony Bellew in 2011. Suitably nicknamed ‘The Upsetter’, he’s often voiced his opinion that he’s avoided due to his reputation as a dangerous and pure power puncher with all of his 8 stoppage wins having come in the first 3 rounds.

 

Now as champion there are a number of fighters eager to face McKenzie and Dodson is as tough as any challenger. Aiming to start a new chapter of his career with title success, Dodson has moved to light-heavyweight from super-middleweight where he enjoyed Central Area, English and British title reigns. Under the guidance of Salford based trainer Oliver Harrison, 31-year-old Dodson boasts a wealth of experience having shared the ring with the likes of Carl Froch and Paul Smith in the past.
