Denzel Bentley Vs. Danny Dignum: fight in a small hall – Boxing News 24


In the shadow of McCaskill vs Price, the UK could be facing a minor conflict that should provide fireworks. Denzel Bentley (18-3-1), a former world title challenger, is set to take on Danny Dignum (16-1-1), a former WBO European middleweight champion, in a bout that will determine who remains in – or progress to the top.

In November 2022, Denzel Bentley seemed to be at the peak of his career. In a fight with WBO world middleweight champion Zhanibek Alimkhanuly (15-0), Bentley took the Kazakh warrior to the distance, stumbling only in the championship rounds. Ultimately, Bentley made an incredible impression on the world stage.

Earlier in the year, WBO European middleweight champion Danny Dignum also attempted to fight “Qazaq Style” but was brutally knocked out in the second round. This is the only serious blemish on Dignum's record, but it is a serious one, especially when comparing the two men who are set to head to York Hall on May 11th.

Bentley, coming off a world title fight, seemed poised to remain at the top of the division, especially after knocking out then 18-1 Kieran Smith (18-2-1) in the first round. Then on November 18, in a shocking upset, Stoke-on-Trent hero Nathan Heaney (18-0-1) stole the BBBofC British middleweight title from Bentley.

This is a major setback for Bentley. Which, if anything, may make the Londoner more determined to come out on top and win the WBO International middleweight title that is on the line here.

Dignum, on the other hand, has much greater difficulty outside the continental level. Of course, he did not receive the praise that Bentley received after losing to Alimkhanuly. Additionally, thinking about retiring from Dignum at this point will not do him any good on a mental level, especially against a master as tough and powerful as Bentley.

This should prove to be a wild and dangerous battle for both men, each on the cusp of further greatness—or further decline. Personally, given Bentley's outsider point of view and Dignum's belittling attitude, one can see that only Bentley prevails here.

Although in the homeland of British boxing, upsets are not uncommon and who knows what could happen in this unpredictable sport.
