By Sean McDaniel: Former WBC light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) will be making a comeback soon against either welterweight contender Alfonso Gomez or Victor Puiu (18-1-2, 9 KO’s) in July or September, according to thestar.co. Witter, now 36, has been literally falling apart in the past couple of years, suffering one serious injury after another. Witter’s latest injury was a cruciate ligament tear, which he suffered while jobbing. Witter has had surgery to fix that problem and has been healing for the past 12 rounds since the injury occurred.

By William Mackay: Former World Boxing Council light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KO’s) plans on continuing his floundering career by moving up to the welterweight division in hopes that he can find easier pickings at the higher weight class.

By Sean McDaniel: With Junior Witter’s quit job against Devon Alexander last Saturday night, it effectively rules out a unification fight between Witter and World Boxing Association (WBA) light welterweight champion Amir Khan (21-1, 15 KO’s) for the near future and perhaps permanently.

Also on the same card, Nate Campbell (33-6-1, 25 KO’s) went to pieces after being cut over his left eye in the 3rd in his fight against WBO light welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (25-0, 12 KO’s), asking for the fight to be stopped after the 3rd round.
By Liam Santiago: Junior Witter has said he will not retire after quitting against unbeaten American, Devon Alexander. Witter injured his elbow in the early rounds and simply could not use his arm whatsoever. Although, the fight was either man’s for the taking, the Sheffield ‘Hitter’ and his corner agreed to pull out. Witter tried constantly changing his stance and changing his style but nothing worked.
