Lindsay’s Commonwealth title tilt in the balance after tomorrows London clash is canceled

Martin Lindsay has been offered passage back to the title reckoning and will challenge for the Commonwealth featherweight title providing he can get a victory between now and May.

The former Immaculata amateur was due to fight Krzysztof Rogowski in a six rounder in London on Friday night, but has been informed that fight has fallen through.

‘The Mac Man’ was set to challenge Josh Warrington for the colourful Commonwealth strap in Manchester on May 21 if he had beaten Rogowski, but with that fight falling through needs to secure a fight and a win before being cleared to fight the unbeaten Warrington-last seen beating Rendell Munroe.

There is a good and bad news element to recent events. Lindsay hasn’t been active of late and the former British champions last bout was a points reverse to Lee Selby on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s knock out win over Kiko Martinez.

So to be still considered for a title is a bonus for the Belfast ticket seller, but the chance might pass him by if he can’t secure victory over the coming weeks.
