Witter on next Prizefighter

Junior Witter and Colin Lynes head the bill for the Prizefighter Welterweights II at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Tuesday June 7 – the final Prizefighter of the season. Former WBC light welterweight champion Witter could face Lynes at the same venue that they met in 2005 when Sheffield’s Witter successfully defended his Commonwealth, European and British titles against Londoner Lynes. Witter won his WBC crown in 2006 against DeMarcus Corley and defended it twice the following year before Timothy Bradley took it from him through a split decision in 2008. There’s a chance for double retribution for former IBO World, British and European champ Lynes, with that score to settle against ‘The Hitter’ as well as one with Prizefighter, after he lost the Light-Welterweights final to Gavin Rees in December 2009. Former British champion Kevin McIntyre, unbeaten prospects John Wayne Hibbert and Bobby Gladman, Yassine El Maachi, Peter McDonagh and Nathan Graham complete the line-up for the 19th edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournaments.
