Jazza Dickens Takes to Social Media in Search of Next Fight

James "Jazza" Dickens, the current IBO featherweight champion, has taken to social media in search of his next fight. Dickens won the title back in October of last year with a victory over Lerato Dlamini in Liverpool.

He holds a win over former WBA champion Leigh Wood and has previously challenged for the IBF crown.

Despite his impressive record of 32-4, with 12 knockouts, Dickens has yet to have a date confirmed for his first title defense. In an attempt to kickstart talks, he mentioned fellow British featherweight Josh Warrington as a potential future foe in a tweet to Matchroom Boxing's official account.

"Both myself and [Josh Warrington are] sitting on the side waiting [for a date]," Dickens wrote on Twitter. "I’ve got the [IBO title] and I’m happy to make this [fight], respectfully."

The two fighters have never faced each other before, but a potential matchup would certainly generate plenty of interest among boxing fans. Warrington is a former IBF featherweight champion and boasts an impressive record of 30-1, with 7 knockouts.

While there has been no official confirmation of a bout between the two fighters, Dickens' tweet has certainly got the attention of Warrington and boxing fans around the world. Dickens remains focused on his training as he waits for his next opportunity to step into the ring and defend his title.
