Brook vs. Bizier: Tyrone Nurse-Willie Limond Added To Card

By Elliot Foster

Tyrone Nurse will defend his British super lightweight title next month.

The Huddersfield man has been handed a date, with his fight likely to be aired on TV.

Nurse, 26, won the vacant title in November when he outpointed a bloodied Chris Jenkins in their rematch at Manchester Arena.

And the man who holds a record of 32-2-1 (6) will make the first defence of his crown as part of a Sky Sports-televised card.


He’ll face Willie Limond –– a former holder of the crown –– over 12 rounds at the Sheffield Arena on March 26 on the undercard of Kell Brook’s mandatory IBF welterweight world title defence against Canada’s Kevin Bizier.

The news was confirmed by Limond, who is a former Commonwealth and WBU world champion, on his official Facebook page.

The 37-year-old Scot, 39-4 (11), wrote: “[It’s] time to drag these old legs through another training camp and another battle.”

Luke Campbell, the Olympic gold medal-winning lightweight, will return to the ring on the bill, four months after suffering his first career defeat in the paid ranks, while Andy Townend defends his English super featherweight title against Craig Poxton and heavyweight duo Dave Allen and Richard Towers clash in an eliminator for the British crown.

Elsewhere, Adam Etches, Leigh Wood, Lee Appleyard and Jordan Gill will see action.
