Rewind Review: Danny Whitaker - Dave Allen told me about Nick Webb

With the now famous words still ringing round the Planet Ice Arena in Manchester last December, heavyweight Danny Whitaker was preparing himself for the next biggest test of his career, a semi final against experienced boxer Nick Webb.

Whitaker had already exceeded his wildest dreams, a points decision over early tournament favourite Jonathan Palata wasn’t just an underdog’s dream, but a personal settler – with Palata refusing publically to shake hands with the Yorkshireman back on Draw Day.

Whitaker now has sights on a rematch with Webb, and although that’s a fight that may have to come further down the line, Whitaker is ready to wait, stating a lack of opportunity to prepare for Nick ‘Wild’ Webb hindered his chances last time round.
