Witter Hopes To Punch His Way To a World Title Shot

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

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.

Witter will destroy Paulie, then get a shot at Floyd who he'll bamboozle with his seamless stance switching (hang on a minute, just switching stances....yep, now I'm southpaw....wait a minute...yep, back to orthodox again). Witter needs to retire, he's British…
