A CRACKING local derby between Sheffield’s high profile middleweight Liam Cameron and super-fit rival Jez Wilson will go ahead on June 23.
The pair will compete for the Central Area title at Don Valley stadium. For Cameron, 21, it will be a chance to move up a level and add to his won 12 lost 1 record.
For Wilson, 32, it will be an opportunity to re-embrace a sport he got fed up with after a series of postponed shows.
Wilson, a Crosspool fireman, had intended to retire. But promoter Dennis Hobson’s offer of staging a derby was too inviting to turn down.
The fight will pit trainers Clinton Woods and Glyn Rhodes against each other.
Meanwhile, a Rhodes’ show in March at Sheffield Wednesday raised £20,000 for Bluebell Wood hospice. The donation was boosted by Meadowbank specialist steel group director AJ Hobson. One table of businessmen pledged £6,000 in the auction.
