British and Commonwealth titles on the line when Lindsay fights Warrington

MARTIN Lindsay has been afforded another British featherweight title opportunity.

The 32 year old Belfast fighter was due to challenge Leed’s Josh Warrington for the Commonwealth title, but the BBBofC confirmed the British title will also be on the line come May 21.

Former Lindsay foe Lee Selby has vacated as he bids to become featherweight champion of Europe, vacating and freeing up the title for Lindsay and Warrington to fight for.

Promoter of the Sky Broadcast show, Eddie Hearn confirmed Lindsay will be given the opportunity to regain a title he lost to John Simpson on a Wednesday night in December of 2010.

Lindsay, who claimed the title by beating Paul Appleby in the Ulster Hall in the Spring of 2009, knows that at 32 he is entering last chance saloon.

Speaking to the Belfast Newsletter he said.

“I had to take the fight and this is a huge opportunity for me. I was 32 on Saturday so I have to win this one – it’s last chance saloon for me, but I am prepared to give it my all,” he added.
