JUNIOR WITTER bounced back into the big time by capturing the British welterweight title off Colin Lynes in Sheffield on Saturday.
The former WBC world light-welterweight champ enjoyed a unanimous points verdict to beat Lynes for the second time in his career.
Witter, 38, said: “I knew Colin would be looking for revenge but I said all along that it is my time to show I am back in business.
“It’s strange how things work out.
“I aim to be active and keep on fighting and will hopefully have a world title shot come my way.You never know what is in store but I feel I have shown enough in this fight to prove that I am back in business.”
Witter never looked troubled throughout and the judges scored it 115-114, 117-112 and 116-114.
Kid Galahad retained his WBC international super-bantamweight title on the same bill.
The doctor halted the fight after the ninth round when challenger Josh Wale suffered a bad cut to his eye.
Middleweight Chris Eubank Jr outpointed Harry Matthews to make it four wins from four professional fights.
