01.05.08 Limmond vs Earl collide on the 14th June...
Former Amir Khan opponent Willie Limmond will be making the first defence of his newly aquired IBO 'intercontinental' Lightweight 135lb title on June the 14th. Limmond won the belt in a tough 12 round points win over Martin Watson.
His opponent will be another Amir victim in Graham Earl. The fight will be staged at the Glasgow's SEC.
The Former British and Commonwealth champion Earl has seemingly been written-off prior to his fight with Amir Khan, with many of his loyal coaching team leaving him out in the cold, fearful that is Earl continues to box he could end up getting seriously hurt.
This fear was only underlined when Earl took plenty of flush shots in the opening round, forcing the referee to stop the fight there and then.
Always the consumate professional, Limmond will prepare for the very Earl.
