UNBEATEN Birkenhead lightweight boxer Sean 'Masher' Dodd is training for a fight that could see him claim his first professional title.

Dodd will challenge former amateur champion Andy Townend for the Central Area Super-Featherweight title in Doncaster on Saturday, May 10.

The contest is Dodd's first step-up the professional ladder. Success can lead to bigger title bouts.

Nothing has been left to chance and preperation at the Venture gym with Danny Kelly and Sean Trodden has been perfect. The whole team is confident that the title will be coming back to Birkenhead.

Masher's manager Damian Jones said: "Since leaving the amateur ranks Sean has been almost faultless in his performances and that has now been recognised with this title opportunity

"Although we would have loved for the fight to have taken in place in Liverpool we have no fear of travelling and a large number of people have already got their tickets to support Sean.

"Everybody knows that Sean sells a lot of tickets for his fights and this has not changed despite the fight taking place in Yorkshire.

"There are still a handful of tickets available from the Venture gym or from Stacey's Salon on Conway Street if anyone wants to come along."
