Norwich boxer Nathan Dale has vowed to deliver the goods on the biggest night of his professional career later this month.
The 25-year-old came face to face today with Philip Bowes, the man who stands in his way of a guaranteed shot at the English super-lightweight title.
The pair square off in a final eliminator at The Halls in Norwich on November 25, and while both parties were acting with the height of respect for each other yesterday, there is little doubt things will heat up when they meet in the ring.
Bowes, who has 14 wins and two defeats on his record, believes fans are in for a 'chess match' lasting the full 10 rounds.
Dale for his part wants an early night and is looking for a knockout punch.

'I just want to go out there and do my best and do the job,' he said. 'If I do that, I win.'
