LYON WOODSTOCK insists he’d jump at the opportunity to fight British super-featherweight champion Sam Bowen when he was presented with enough notice.

The bitter regional competitions are both for action at Leicester’s Morningside Arena on Saturday night, when Bowen gets the first defence of the national name against Jordan McCorry, survive BT Sport.

Woodstock is about the comeback road after losing his unbeaten record to fellow prospect Archie Sharp in precisely exactly the same ring October.

Bowen’s team have accused Woodstock of previously turning down the opportunity to challenge Bowen a month.

Woodstock blames the absence of note, also snapped: “It was two weeks’ note, come on man.

“What smart man who rates themselves in any sort of way will require a 12 round British title fight at this short notice?

“I’m not attempting to sell myself short. I know my values, what I’ve come here to accomplish and that which I’m around.

“Had I had been given the time, I would have taken the struggle 100 per-cent. ”

Frank Warren promotes both boxers and seems certain to match the feuding fighters who live only 1-3 miles apart against each other in the coming months.

Woodstock included: “” I was clinging onto hopes for this particular show and said; ‘Obtain me the Bowen struggle, get me that the Bowen fight. I will fight himtake the straps and it is going to be one of the best come back in history. ’

“From the conclusion of 2019 in my own head, I will be the British champion. Give me note and that I shall fight Bowen. ”

CJ Challenger along with Kyle Haywood struggle for the empty Midlands Area super-welterweight name occurs on the same bill.


Sam Maxwell knows asserting the WBO an super lightweight name against Kelvin Dotel on Saturday can make him a target for national competitions.

The heavy-handed ‘Super’ (10-0-KO8) confronts Spain’s Dotel about Frank Warren’s Leicester show — live on BT Sport — also can be relishing the possibility of significant vulnerability in his first name fight as an expert.

Maxwell said: “With a big win on TV and a name to my name, I’ll be in the perfect position to book more coicts against big names in the division like Ohara Davies.

“Davies has always one I’ve wanted to manage later on because I h to try myself against the best fighters domestically.

“Just as a specialist, sometimes I’ve fought without anxiety since I’Id fought so early or so cards and late and perhaps not most remain to find it.

“I understand Dotel’s album and that he’s defeated a few great guys. He’s fought in a good degree and isn’t somebody I can afford to over look.

“I’ve watched any of his own fights on YouTube and also he resembles a strong all-purpose boxer. He’s got a good textbook guard, ” he ’s gained speed and he’s got power, therefore it’ll be a good fight. ”

Maxwell was last for action straight back on the Josh Warrington vs. undercard back in December, when he became only the second person to stop Jamie Quinn in over 80 fights.
