By Sean McDaniel: Former World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) isn’t pleased with having been rejected by WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) for a good money fight on April 16th at the M.E.N. Arena, in Manchester, England.
By Dan Henderson: Rumors emerged today that WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) is in negotiations with Junior Witter to be his opponent for his April 16th bout at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester.
By William Mackay: Former WBC light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) is 36-years-old and will be turning 37 in March, hasn’t fought in the past 18 months, has lost two out of his last three fights and recently confessed on Sky Sports Ringside that he can no longer make light welterweight because it drains him. This is the guy that WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) may end up fighting on April 16th at the M.E.N. Arena, in Manchester, England.
By William Mackay: Just when you thought WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) couldn’t go any lower in looking for his next opponent for his still open April 16th date at the M.E.N. Arena, in Manchester, Khan’s dad, Shah, is saying that former WBC light welterweight champion Junior Witter (27-3-2, 22 KO’s) has been added to the list of potential opponents for Khan. I’m sorry, but I see this as a terrible option for Khan. You can ignore Witter’s impressive looking ring record because he’s not the same fighter he once.
By Lewis Croft: Former WBC Light welterweight champion Junior ‘The Hitter’ Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) returns to boxing following a 18 month absence following his defeat to Devon Alexander (21-1, 13 KO’s). After years of struggle to get down to the 140lb limit the long lay off has left no alternative but to move up to 147. Appearing on Sky Sports Boxing Magazine show ‘Ringside’ he stated that he would no longer be able to make the 10 stone weight limit and that moving up to welterweight would suit him perfectly.
By Sean McDaniel: European Boxing Union (EBU) welterweight champion Matthew Hatton (41-4-2, 16 KO’s) is hoping to challenge WBA welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (31-0, 20 KO’s) in his next fight. Fighting for a world title has been a dream for Hatton, the brother of former two division world champion Ricky Hatton, all his life. However, fighting and beating Senchenko won’t give Hatton much respect or credibility among boxing fans, because Senchenko is considered one of the two paper champions in the welterweight division.
By Sean McDaniel: Former World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) expressed interest in facing EBU welterweight champion Mathew Hatton (41-4-2, 16 KO’s) next. And there’s talk that the 29-year-old Hatton is interested in taking the fight. This would be the perfect time for Hatton to face Witter, because Witter is 36-years-old now, hasn’t fought in over a year since being stopped in the 8th round by Devon Alexander last year in August, and has lost two out of his last three fights.
By Ben James: There is no questioning that the current European welterweight champion Matthew Hatton (40-4-2 – 15 KOs) has come on leaps and bounds as a fighter in recent years, but his ego seems to be swelling far beyond that of his talent. He recently has been quoted in the press as saying that he would like to be the man to send Junior Witter (37-3-2 – 22 KOs) into retirement, but then reverts back to his big brothers cowardice attitude saying “I am close to a world title shot, why take the risk?”.
By Sean McDaniel: Former World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) is making his long awaited comeback since being stopped by Devon Alexander in the 8th round a year ago in August 2009, and wants to go after the EBU welterweight title that is currently held by Matthew Hatton (40-4-2, 15 KO’s), the younger brother of Ricky Hatton. Witter, now 36, never had a bit of luck trying to get Ricky Hatton in the ring, and it’s likely he’ll have problems getting the younger Hatton in the ring as well. Matthew Hatton is coming off a 12 round decision win over Yuriy Nuzhnenko on July 16th, and is currently ranked at number #15 by the WBA in the welterweight division.
By Tom Graves: Over a year ago on the 2nd of May 2009 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the pride of Manchester Ricky Hatton was decimated in under two rounds by the now seven weight-world champion Manny Paquiao, since that astonishing night there have been a large number of rumours circulating around the media concerning the future of The Hitman.
