Rival Lynes up Witter

Have your say

COLIN Lynes has some unfinished business to attend to with former Sheffield world champion Junior Witter.

The pair met in 2005 for the British, Commonwealth and European titles and Witter held on to them with a unanimous points decision.

Now Lynes is on a revenge mission and he could meet Witter again in the Prizefighter Welterweights II show at York Hall, Bethnal Green, London on Tuesday June 7.

Lynes, who will be making his second appearance in Prizefighter, said: “I’d love to get it on with Junior Witter and avenge that loss.

“I pushed him all the way but I was a bit in awe of him and I didn’t step it up in the later rounds, like Timothy Bradley did when he beat him.

“But I’m a more experienced fighter now and although I really respect Junior I wouldn’t be holding back this time, I’d be straight on him.”
