Limond vs. Doyle Encounter Will Top a Historic Card

Willie Limond will fight fellow Scot Eddie Doyle for the Commonwealth light-welterweight title after injury-hit Lee McAllister gave up the belt. The fight will be held in Glasgow on January 21 at the St Andrew's Sporting Club in order to mark its 40th anniversary.

The club opened in January 1973 with a British title fight between two of Scotland's greatest boxers, Ken Buchanan and Jim Watt.

Former European and Commonwealth champion Limond is looking to bounce back from his British lightweight title defeat by Anthony Crolla, while unbeaten Doyle aims to keep progressing after winning a British masters title at lightweight against Gary McArthur earlier this year.

Promoter Tommy Gilmour revealed the winner would face McAllister in the spring if the Aberdeen fighter recovers from the elbow injury which hampered his recent European title shot.

Watt plans to attend the fight between Limond and Doyle in the club's Burns Night celebrations.

"It's always a special night and obviously the very first one was the night the club opened when Kenny Buchanan and I gave them a torrid 15-rounder," Watt said in Glasgow.

"The club is special to me and the opening night was very special.

"Although I lost the fight I got a lot of credit and the knowledge I could mix it with the best in the world.

"I won the British title here and the European title here, I took a lot of the steps towards the world title here.

"It's amazing the St Andrew's Sporting Club is still in existence.

"Back then there were various sporting clubs up and down the country and they were thriving. One by one because of the economic climate they have fallen by the wayside, I don't think there is another one in the country."

Gilmour added: "We opened with Watt-Buchanan in January '73 and I wanted to come up with something special to mark 40 years.

"There is nothing better than two guys trying to prove they are the best in the land."
