LONDON - Former WBC Champion Junior Witter has thrown down the gauntlet to WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan saying “Come on Khan let’s get it on, I'll show you how I swing it!!!.”
Khan’s management team made contact over the weekend and sounded out if Witter would be interested in fighting Amir on April 16th.
Junior said “My manager John Ingle spoke to me about the Khan offer, I’m up for this 100 percent; it would be an opportunity too good to turn down fighting for a World title again."
“I’m fighting on the 19th February in Canada at welterweight for the first time and I'm on the weight now at 10st 7lbs which is usually what I weigh 3 weeks before making the 10st limit, so I don’t see any problems doing it again. Training has been perfect and sparring the likes of Kell Brook has sharpened my skills."
"Khan, you have never boxed anyone with my experience, calibre and credentials so if you want to start playing with fire be careful you might get burnt" Added Witter.
