The decade is coming to an end, and there are many memorable sporting moments in Pembrokeshire to reflect on.

Gordon Thomas, Fraser Watson, and Bill Carne have picked out ten of them (in no particular order).

Here is number three......

A prize night on Sky for Dale:

There’s been no shortage of Pembrokeshire boxing success stories in these past 10 years.

Charlene Jones and Mickey McDonagh competed in the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games respectively, the latter winning silver, and at this present time big things are expected of a host of young prospects.

But it was back in January 2013 when Sky Sports showcased the career of one local fighter like never before.

Aged 21 and cornered by Graham Brockway, the then Merlins Bridge ABC boxer qualified for the Prizefighter competition in Wolverhampton. The televised event was designed to unearth future professional stars of the sport.

Evans had beaten Sam Eggington in his quarter final before taking a 29-28 verdict against pre-tournament favourite Mark Thompson, setting up a final with Sunderland’s Glenn Foot.

Both had gone into the night with unbeaten records and sure enough, a thrilling final followed. Evans lost a bout many felt he’d won on a split decision but despite the disappointment, the night proved a springboard for his boxing career.

That career ended with retirement in early 2018 but Evans can still look back at his time at the top with pride. And that night in Wolves will be right up among the memories.

GT: It was the night that the boxing fraternity stood up and took notice of Dale Evans. He boxed brilliantly throughout the tournament and he can count himself unlucky he wasn’t crowned Prizefighter after agonizingly not getting the verdict I think he richly deserved.

FW: I genuinely thought he’d won that final. It was mixed emotions for him because he had the unbelievable high of winning twice on live television but to come so close in the final must have been a sickener.

BC: I thought he might have sneaked the verdict as well but it wasn’t to be. Dale was a real battler and he showed what he could do in that fight – and at the bell Glenn looked like he thought he’d lost it too.
