Willie Limond-Chris Jenkins Will Collide on April 11th

Willie Limond will defend his British Light Welterweight title against Chris Jenkins at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on April 11, live on Sky Sports.

Scotsman Limond wrestled the title from Curtis Woodhouse in Glasgow in June, landing a Lonsdale belt at the second time of asking after challenging Anthony Crolla for the Lightweight title back in 2011.

Unbeaten Welsh challenger Jenkins rose to fame after running away with the Prizefighter Light Welterweights III tournament in July 2013, entering the night with just seven fights under his belt but winning every round of his quarter-final and semi-final before knocking out Danny Connor in the second round of the final. The 26 year old has moved to 16-0 and picked up the WBC International Light Welterweight title a year ago, but faces his first big test against the experienced Scot in Yorkshire.

Limond’s clash with Jenkins is part of a huge night of action in Leeds, as hometown favourite Josh Warrington faces Dennis Tubieron for the vacant WBC International Featherweight title and World title eliminator.

Martin J. Ward and Maxi Hughes rematch in a British Super Featherweight title eliminator after their exciting draw in December. Leeds man and British Light Heavyweight champ Bob Ajisafe, world-rated Super Middleweight Rocky Fielding and Prizefighter champion Jono Carroll will also be in action. Limond and Jenkins replace Nathan Cleverly on the bill, with the former World champion now set to appear in London on April 25.
