Woodhouse vs. Limond Targeted For Summer Clash

By Shaun Brown


BoxingScene.com has been told it is “99% certain” that British light-welterweight champion, Curtis Woodhouse, 22-6 (13 KOs), and Commonweatlh light-welterweight champion, Willie Limond, 37-4 (10 KOs), will square off in an England vs. Scotland clash this summer.

 

The Scot is on record as saying that tickets for his next fight will “fly out the door” and both men are expected to announce this domestic unification fight this week or next.

 

Limond’s manager Alex Morrison told ‘Scene: “It’s a winnable fight for Willie and a good one for him to take at this stage of his career. We hope to make an announcement next week but we’re 99% certain that this will be the next fight for Willie.”

 

Woodhouse, 34, is riding the crest of a wave at the moment after his fairy-tale transition from professional footballer to professional boxer that culminated in winning the 140lb Lonsdale belt from Darren Hamilton in a thrilling contest back in February.

 

Limond, 35, will be looking to put his name back up in lights in a career that has seen him share the ring with the likes of Amir Khan and Erik Morales. The Glaswegian is on a three-fight win streak since losing to current ‘hot property’ Anthony Crolla, when challenging for the Mancunian’s British lightweight title two years ago.


BoxingScene.com understands that the Battle of Britain clash will act as chief support for Ricky Burns vs. TBA in June in Glasgow. A bill that will also feature a cruiserweight grudge match between Stephen Simmons and Wadi Camacho.
