Two-time world title challenger Howard Eastman will be out to turn John Duddy's Kings Hall dream into a nightmare when they clash at the legendary Belfast venue on December 8th on the next Hunky Dorys Fight Night. The 36-year-old Eastman (42-5, 35 KOs) is somewhat faded, having lost four of his last six, all against world class opponents, but the "Battersea Bomber" is certainly not a gimmee opponent for Duddy, who is biding his time waiting for a world title shot. "It doesn't get much better than fighting a guy with Eastman's reputation at the Kings Hall," said Duddy. "He's had almost twice as many KO's as I've had fights so that tells you everything about him. He has an amazing record and there's no doubt he's a very dangerous man."

Eastman isnt that good. All his losses were against world class fighters, but his most recent was against a fairly average domestic fighter. He was a big wasted talent though, he could certainly have beating Joppy had he done alittle more.

This is a great fight for Duddy. He is now being brought along the way he should be, because there was no way he should have been in a title fight yet.
