After five and a half years out of the 'game' Dynamite Dean Phillips is back and looking to finally make his mark in the fight game in 2005. Dean decided to call it a day in 1998 at only 22 yrs of age, after losing a six round points decision to Steve Conway.
 

He decided to attend college, where he gained a degree in IT after losing interest in boxing. He had become disillusioned with the sport due to contact disputes and three disputed decisions on points. In his most recent fight against Kevin Bennett for the Commonwealth (British Empire) Lightweight title, the fight ended in defeat on points. But this will not stop the man from Llanelli, Wales.

Dean Phillips started boxing at about 12 or 13; it was a natural progression for him from Full Contact Kickboxing, he cleaned up his division, winning the Welsh, British, European and World Junior Featherweight titles from the ages of 15-17. Dean had only 21 amateur boxing contests, but most of his fights were tough ones against experienced operators. In his very first fight he beat a guy who had the experience of 30ish contests. His second and third fights went the same way, and he scored a couple of stoppage wins in the next few contests before entering the amateur national championships in the UK. He did well and won the Welsh Schools Championship, and reached the British Finals in his first year of amateur boxing. After this, he was a member of the National Squad, and took part in Internationals, including winning a bronze medal in the Gaelic Games.

Great to have you here Dynamite Dean, we'll all be pulling for you big time in your February bout? Is the scheduling all final for the fight?

I had a question about your training. You obviously go through strenuous physical training to prepare for a fight but how much other preparation is done such as watching tape and studying your opponent's tendencies?



Sir

Looks like Dean has worked hard to get where he is. And to get there with only a few amatuer fights. Alot of boxers stay amatuer for quite a few years and have 80+ fights before turning pro...

Besides the physical side of fight preperation, I use psychological techniques to prepare myself mentally, as boxing is very much psychological as well as physical. I don't tend to watch too much of tapes of the guy in action as that can lead to false senses of security i.e. your opponent may very well use different tactics and fight totally different to what he did on the tape that you watch!! But yes, it is a good idea to watch a tape to get a feel of his main strengths and weaknesses, just that I don't rely on that as my sole method of preparation.
