When Tom Dallas was offered this fight he had been out of the gym since the Zack Page fight. (aprox three weeks) He wasn't expected to fight untill September and was takeing a time out relaxing with his family. when he was offered this fight he only needded the time to go to the gym and see how fit he was and if he could do 10 rounds as he has only done 1 x 8. rounder. He was asked on the Tuesday afternoon. Went to the Gym Wednesday evening and by 8.30 was asked by Sky Sports for an answer. which he replied, Ive just done 8 rounds on the pads and feel ok so lets get it on. Thursday he trained for the fight, Friday he drove to Liverpool for the weigh in and Saterday he boxed. Now you tell me who would fight David Price with only 1 day and 1 evenings training. NO ONE. Sexton. Harrison. Rogen. Sprott all turned the fight down. Tom stepped in to save the show knowing he would almost certanly loose along with he's unbeaten record and also get a good pay day as well. So you can all sit on here and run him down but ask your self honestly. would you have had the bottle to do that under these circomstances, I doubt it very much. I take my hat off to tom and wish him all the luck in the future
