Travis Dickinson – Redemption on Nov 8th

On November the 8th (less than 2 weeks) we see the north easts own Travis Dickinson #3 take on Bob posterAjisafe #2 for the second time.The bout being rescheduled from October 4th due to an injury to Ajisafe. The two ranked #3 and #2 in England respectively will square off for the second time after Ajisafe beat the previously undefeated Dickinson via unanimous decision in December 2012. The winner will take the British light heavyweight boxing title home currently held by Ajisafe, and win the final of the maxi nutrition knockout tournament. 

For Dickinson it’s much more than that. It’s about bringing the belt home to Durham and wiping the slate clean. I caught up with Travis and asked him what’s going to be different from the last fight and what’s motivated you to train so hard for the fight with Bob?

“Revenge, short and sweet”

Dickinson has taken no shortcuts in training and promises there will be no repeat in history come the 8th. On his way to the final he beat Danny McIntosh and Matty Clarkson, both by way of TKO. Any boxing fan will of heard of the fight between him and Matty Clarkson as it was fight of the year candidate, and for good reason. After being dropped 3 times by nasty body shots Dickinson scraped himself from the canvas to TKO Clarkson after a gruelling display of heart by both fighters. Dickinson proved he has the heart of a lion and the will to win no matter what comes his way.

Dickinson predicted he would face Ajisafe and admitted it’s what he wanted. No doubt we will see a fired up Travis Dickinson. And if his last fight is anything to go by it promises to be a great fight. Will he bring another belt back to the northeast? Find out on 8th November by going to the event or tuning in on Channel 5!

Good luck to Travis from everyone at fightstore!

About Us


MMA in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the North East generally has grown massively over the last few years and coupled with its boxing heritage it’s truly astounding that the regions capitol city has been without a dedicated Martial Arts and Boxing store for so long. Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for. The MMAnewcastle website was originally built purely because of the amount of inquires we received daily about where people could train. We offer our directory and events listing free to the North East Martial Arts and Boxing community and will continue to work to promote the sports we love in our region
