Watch out Fewky: your rival punches ‘like a mule’

John Fewkes - must dance around rival's power shots

Beware the big punch is the message Curtis Woodhouse is sending to former stablemate John Fewkes.

Norfolk Park’s Fewkes has not faced any stiff challenges since he reversed his retirement decision but Miles will test his credentials if he lands at Doncaster Dome tomorrow. Southpaw Miles is 13-3 with 10 KOs. It’s safe to say he can punch, just ask Woodhouse, who was floored by Miles last year in his only ever stoppage loss.

Woodhouse said: “He punches like a mule. Every time he landed it shook me to my boots.” It’s certain to be a contrast in styles with the skilful Fewkes doing his best to avoid the raw Miles for eight rounds and trying to land scoring punches along the way.

Swinton light-middleweight Tommy Coward is on the card and is himself in with a banger in Max Maxwell. Although it appears Maxwell, who once challenged for the British title, has reverted to journeyman mode with nine straight losses, he’s still be a danger. Coward’s mentor Stefy Bull said: “Tommy has plenty of cash so he doesn’t have to box, he just enjoys it. He had a cracking fight last year, showing heart to get up off the canvas against John Wayne Hibbert. He wants to give it another go.”
