Witter the Hitter- World Champ Designate

Will Yorkshire man Junior Witter nicknamed ‘The Hitter’ regain his WBC World Championship title first won in 2006 but relinquished two years later? Promoter Mick Hennessy is confident Junior Witter will win back the world lightwelterweight title when he takes on unbeaten American Devon Alexander in Florida on July 11th despite Junior being not so junior at age 35.

As with much top level boxing there is a deal of hype and posturing to stimulate, then satisfy American TV audiences but let us hope ‘The Hitter’ can regain his world title.
It looks doubtful that a fight will be arranged between either Amir Kahn or Ricky Hatton although it may be a different proposition if Junior brings back the belt from America. see below
