Colin Lynes is Hungry To Knock Junior Witter Off at York

Colin Lynes is aiming to go one step further in his second appearance in Prizefighter - and hopes to take out former world champion Junior Witter on his way to glory on June 7 at the York Hall.

Lynes and Witter are part of the line-up for the second outing of the welterweights in Prizefighter and for Lynes, it's a second crack at the competition after losing out to Gavin Rees in the light-welterweights final in December 2009.

The Hornchurch man also feels he has unfinished business with Witter in the process. The pair met at the east London venue in 2005 for the Yorkshireman's British, Commonwealth and European titles and Witter held on to them with a unanimous points decision.

"I'd love to get it on with Junior Witter and avenge that loss," Lynes told Steve Bunce's BBC London Boxing Hour.

"I pushed him all the way but I was a bit in awe of him and I didn't step it up in the later rounds, like Timothy Bradley did when he beat him.

"But I'm a more experienced fighter now and although I really respect Junior I wouldn't be holding back this time - I'd be straight on him."

Lynes and Witter will not have it all their own way on the night with a strong line-up gunning for the trophy and the £32,000 winner's cheque.

Former British champion Kevin McIntyre, unbeaten prospects John Wayne Hibbert and Bobby Gladman, popular north London-based Moroccan Yassine El Maachi, Irish European title challenger Peter McDonagh and Nathan Graham complete the line-up - and Lynes has told them what to expect.

"You need to go at it every round in every fight, but that's my cup of tea and why I enjoy it so much," said Lynes.

"It's making me do stuff I wouldn't normally do, it's a different style of training to the 12 rounders. It keeps you young, keeps you lively, excited and it's great or the public."
