Jazza Dickens too much for gutsy May

ALWAYS-popular James “Jazza” Dickens was two knockdowns to the good at Olympia but had to contend with a late fight back from never-say-die Aussie Nathaniel May before being crowned victorious.

Beaten only once, May looked headed for loss number two when, already down late in the fourth from a combination upstairs, he renewed his acquaintance with the canvas in the next session after walking onto a right in centre ring.

It turned out he was made of stern stuff and he had the better of the last three rounds to leave the scores looking a little more respectable. Jazza might well have slowed down the straight but his early superiority, coupled with those knockdowns, proved more than sufficient at the finish.
