British Boxing: Junior Witter Out To Regain Pride For Yorkshire

Junior Witter is out to restore some pride into Yorkshire boxing when he defends his WBC light welterweight title against American Timothy Bradley at the Trent FM Arena Nottingham on Saturday, May 10, live on ITV1 and a delayed ShoBox special in the US.

Witter makes the third defence of his prestigious world title on a Hennessy Sports in association with GoldenPalace.com show. After seeing his fellow Yorkshire man Clinton Woods lose his IBF light-heavyweight title on points to Antonio Tarver in April.

‘The Hitter’ is promising to produce his best and denies Bradley’s claim he has taken him lightly. "This is a chance for me to pick up Yorkshire boxing after Clinton’s loss," said Witter. "It was disappointing because I really wanted him to win, but Clinton was well beat.

"The big lights seemed to get to him but I bet if the fight was in Sheffield Clinton could have beat Tarver. It’s up to me now to make sure I keep my world title because there are not that many world champions left in Britain now. I’ve not taken Bradley lightly and have had a long training camp for this one, so expect to see the best from me."
