Conlan could beat Wilton to British title fight
By Jonny Stapleton
JAMIE Conlan could beat fellow Belfast Flyweight Luke Wilton to a British title shot.
Eddie Hearn revealed on Ringside that he is in talks with Chris Edwards and is trying to add the domestic dust to his September 22 Belfast show, which could also see a British title fight between Martin Lindsay and Lee Selby, as well as a European title fight between Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez.
“We are talking to his team at the moment about putting him in with Jamie Conlan on our Belfast show on September 22. Hopefully we can make that happen the little guys always bring good action,” Hearn told Ringside.
‘Winky’ Wilton told Irish-boxing.com during the week that he hoped to secure and Edwards clash on the Peace Promotions Card set for the Ulster Hall on October 13. (SEE STORY HEAR :http://www.irish-boxing.com/2012/07/wilton-hoping-edwards-agrees-to-british-title-fight-in-october/)
Edward’s also told the world’s leading website on all things Irish Boxing that he was open to fighting either.
So it seems Wilton and Irish Prospect of the Year Conlan, who have yet to meet in the ring despite a massive fan desire for the derby, will do battle outside the squared circle to lure the British Champion to Belfast.
Upon hearing the veteran drew with Anwar Alfadli (1-26-2) over the weekend both will keen to get their gloves on the Stoke on Trent fighter and will be confident they can become lord of the domestic flys.
