Willie Limond is Ready For Redemption With Doyle

Willie Limond is looking to restore his reputation when he fights for the Commonwealth light-welterweight title against fellow Glaswegian Eddie Doyle.

Limond has held WBU, European and Commonwealth titles at lesser weights but his dream of becoming a British champion ended with a comprehensive points loss to lightweight Anthony Crolla a year ago.

Limond failed to get going that night in Motherwell but he revealed problems making the weight had left him devoid of energy.

And the 33-year-old is determined to make amends when he takes on unbeaten Doyle at the St Andrew's Sporting Club in Glasgow on January 21.

Limond said: "For the Crolla fight my training camp went perfect, everything was spot-on.

"But the day before the fight I had to train five times to make the weight.

"The weight was a real problem. I couldn't lose that final pound.

"Come the fight I had nothing left. Fair play to Crolla, he beat me and beat me well.

"I didn't leave the house for two weeks. I was embarrassed. I want to put that to bed.

"People get beat but it was the manner of the defeat that was the problem.

"It was a shock, I didn't think I could box that badly. I didn't win a round."

The pair are competing for the belt relinquished by Aberdeen's Lee McAllister, who aims to fight the winner once he has recovered from an elbow injury.

And Doyle aims to seize the opportunity.

"I would give my left ear for this shot," the 27-year-old said.

"Being the underdog will drive me on even more, I will work 10 times harder. I will do anything I need to do."
