Witter Expects Lynes To To Come in Revenge Hungry

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

JUNIOR WITTER bids to lift the British title in Sheffield tonight at the ripe old age of 38.

Light-welterweight Witter takes on Colin Lynes at the Hillsborough Leisure Centre on the undercard of Kid Galahad’s WBC International super-bantamweight title defense against Josh Wale.

The show, screened on Channel 5, gives Witter a chance to prove that he still has plenty to offer.

The former world champion met Lynes in October 2005, when he successfully defended his British and European titles at York Hall.

Now Lynes, 34, is defending a title and ‘Hitter’ Witter knows that the Hornchurch boxer will be out to turn the tables.

Sheffield puncher Witter said: “It’s strange how things work out, but I know he will be looking for ­revenge.

“But it’s my time to show I’m back and by beating him for the second time it will demonstrate that the ‘Hitter’ is certainly back.”

Witter is hoping that winning the British title for a third time will put him in world title contention, ­despite the advancing years.

He said: “I know I’m not getting any younger and the kids are all turning into men and there’s also a new set of kids behind them.

“So things are just as hard as ­always. But I’m having to change and learn new things every day if I’m to stay one step ahead, as they all know the old moves.

“I have to keep on top of my game if I am to achieve my aim, which is to be fighting for a world title again.”

Lynes will certainly be tough, but the vastly experienced Witter, knowing that time is running out, can win on points.

The night’s main event, Galahad versus Wale, promises to be an ­exciting affair between two hard-punching Yorkshiremen.

Galahad, 22, has won all of his 11 paid fights, while Wale, 24, has won 14 of his 18 paid bouts.

PREDICTION: I’m taking this to be an affair with quite a few twists and turns, with Galahad getting my vote on points.

And I’m taking middleweight Chris Eubank Jr to claim his fourth straight victory when he fights ­Harry Matthews.

TONIGHT’S Sheffield show will be screened on Channel 5 from 10.30pm.
