Jenkins-Limmond rescheduled for 28 March

Jenkins-Limmond rescheduled for 28 March

Chris ‘Rock n Rolla’ Jenkins (16-0, 8KO) will finally get a chance to achieve a lifelong ambition. Earlier today, the British Boxing Board of Control announced that the Welsh light-welterweight will challenge Scotland’s Willie Limmond (38-4, 10KO) for the British title on 28 March. The rescheduled bout will take place on neutral territory at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena, on the undercard of Kell Brook who returns to his hometown to defend the IBF world title for the first time. Jenkins and Limmond were originally due to fight on 23 January in Manchester. However, the show was scrapped when Anthony Crolla was ruled out of a challenge to WBA world champion Richar Abril after sustaining head and ankle injuries when confronting burglars. It will be the first time that Limmond will defend his Lord Lonsdale belt since winning it by defeating Curtis Woodhouse, courtesy of a Majority Decision in September – a British and Commonwealth title unification that Jenkins stepped aside to let happen. 26-year-old Jenkins, who lives in Swansea, now has 10 weeks to train with Ronnie Morris and Jimmy Bloomfield at Cwmgors Amateur Boxing Club, under the management of Paul Boyce.
