Woodhouse Rejects Warren offer of £50,000 for Saunders

By Terence Dooley

Frank Warren’s office has confirmed to BoxingScene that they sent an offer of £50,000 to Dave Coldwell, the manager of Curtis Woodhouse, for the British light-welterweight champion to defend his recently won belt against County Durham’s Bradley Saunders, who won a bronze medal at the 2007 World Amateur Boxing Championships at junior welterweight, he also picked up the ABA Light welterweight championship that year.  The 28-year-old  has raced to 9-0 (7) as a pro and called for either Woodhouse or Willie Limond prior to defeating Mitch Prince by fourth-round TKO at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Saturday night.

Woodhouse revealed that an offer and been made, and rejected, on Twitter earlier today.  The popular 33-year-old won his belt by out-pointing Darren Hamilton in February.  Woodhouse upset the odds to win the belt, and immediately became a target for his domestic rivals.  Woodhouse, 22-6 (13), is represented has a number of options after deciding not to go through with a pre-fight pledge to retire win, lose or draw.

News of Woodhouse’s decision has left the door open for other fighters.  However, the British title-holder has vowed to take his time before nailing down his next move and today’s opening bid could be the first gambit in Warren’s efforts to secure a Woodhouse-Saunders showdown.

It was such a great moment in Hull when Woodhouse won that belt, one of the best nights of boxing I've ever watched. Curtis seems like such a quality bloke and I really hope he rides this win off into…
