BRITISH BOXING ORDER TROY WILLIAMSON VS JAMES METCALF TITLE DEFENCE
2 months ago

A British title fight between Troy Williamson and James Metcalf could happen this year after the contest was put out to purse bids.

The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) announced today (Thursday) that offers to stage the super welterweight clash must be made by no later than midday on July 13.

Williamson’s proposed clash with Metcalf would then take place by the end of November, according to a circular released by the BBBofC.

But the exciting Darlington fighter is ranked inside the top 10 of the IBF, WBA and WBO and Probellum have been exploring international opportunities for Williamson as he bids to move up the standings and towards world title contention.

North East favourite Williamson ripped the British crown away from Ted Cheeseman in 2021 before defending the belt at Probellum Throwdown in March, against Mason Cartwright, with both being Fight of the Year contenders.

And the British boxing authorities have today said Williamson must make a defence of his title against Liverpool’s Metcalf, who enjoyed a career-best win over Kerman Lejarraga in Bilbao, last month.
