The former British and Commonwealth flyweight title challenger has being campaigning had been hoping to get another shot at the domestic flyweight straps that former foe Kevin Satchell will vacate when challenging for the European title.

However, a chance to scalp the much touted Yafai live on Sky Sports proved too much for ‘Winky’ to turn down and the Belfast fighter makes the easy transition to super fly to fight the Commonwealth title.

“I’m very happy to get another shot at Commonwealth,” Wilton told Irish-boxing.com

“As soon as they offered us the fight I said yes, I had no hesitation. Yafai is a good fighter, but I’m always confident in my ability and what I can do in the ring.

“This a big chance on a big show with Sky coverage, a chance I couldn’t refuse and a big opportunity than I intend to take.”
