Willie Limond’s first defence of his British light welterweight title will be against Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse with a date and venue to be advised.


The news was confirmed by the British Boxing Board of Control earlier today, in their monthly circular, that the contest will be promoted by Eddie Hearn after an agreement was reached between the both parties.


Limond 38-4 (10 KOs) is coming off a career best win when defending his Commonwealth title and claiming the Lonsdale version when he outpointed boxing’s Cinderella man, Curtis Woodhouse, back in June in Glasgow.


Rumours are abound that Hearn will return to Scotland later this year with another show that would feature the likes of Stephen Simmons cruiserweight return and Limond vs. Nurse in an ideal chief supporting bout Hearn gets his way and makes Ricky Burns vs. Scott Harrison at 140lbs.


Yorkshire technician, Nurse, won the vacant English 140lb title back in April after outpointing Tyler Goodjohn over ten rounds and gave arguably his best performance to date and looks to be getting better with every step up he takes.


The BBBofC also announced that former Olympian Thomas Stalker 9-0 (2 KOs) and Wales’ Chris Jenkins 15-0 (7 KOs) will compete in a British light welterweight title eliminator after promoter Frank Warren won the rights to stage the contest at a date and venue to be advised. Given Stalker’s ability to sell tickets in his home city of Liverpool don’t be surprised if this bout takes place on ‘The Magnificent Seven Fight Again’ show on  Oct 25 .

Don't think I've ever seen Nurse Domestic fight before.
