West Wales welterweight Dale Evans just missed out on claiming the first Prizefighter trophy of 2013 narrowly missing out in the last stage to Sunderland’s Glenn Foot. Dale along with his competitor had both been undefeated coming into the event, but it was Foot who maintained his record after a great night of boxing at Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall.

Dale of course was wearing his newly embroidered and printed boxing shorts, courtesy of us here at GF. Evans felt unsurprisingly hard done by as his opponent got the nod on a split decision, due to his slightly higher work-rate and quality right hands. Dale felt he had done enough but I’m sure he will bounce back under the watchful eye of coach Gary ‘The Rocketman’ Lockett.

Evans had beaten the bookies favourite coming into the event Mark Thompson and youngster Sam Egginton in the previous rounds. The Welshman from St Clears thoroughly deserved to win both fights as he controlled the fights with his superior hand speed.
