Witter on move to welterweight

On February 19th at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, former WBC junior welterweight world champion Junior “The Hitter” Witter (37-3-2, 22 KOs) returns for the first time since losing to Devon Alexander in an August 2009 WBC 140lb title fight. Witter faces Victor Lupo (18-1-2, 9 KOs) in a ten round welterweight clash. “It got to the point where just making the weight took it all out of me,” said Witter. “Imagine getting into the ring with guys like Timothy Bradley and Devon Alexander, and having nothing left? That’s what 140 was doing to me. Now, instead of battling weight during camp, then dragging myself into the ring, I’m strong, refreshed and able to concentrate more on domination, and less on starvation.”
