The former WBC light-welterweight king, Junior Witter is working his way back to the top.


Once holding the coveted WBC title, the Hitter is certainly focussed on proving he is back.


After defeating Colin Lynes in his last fight at Hillsborough Leisure Centre, Sheffield, he claimed the British welterweight title and seems back on the title trail.


Now a reinvigorated Witter has eyes firmly focussed back on the world scene and after hearing of the recent comeback of Ricky Hatton, an opponent he fruitlessly pursued when they were both world champions, it appears he may be taking aim back at the old foe


In a distinguished professional career that started in 1997 with a draw against Cam Raeside, Witter has held British, Commonwealth, European and World championships.


But, it has been a frustrating time for the Hitter, ever since his defeat to Devon Alexander in 2009 for the vacant WBC light welterweight title.


A ligament injury sustained while playing football kept Junior on crutches for six months and he didn’t enter the ring again until 2011.


Defeat to Victor Lupo Puiu in Canada and then to Yassine El Maachi in the Prizefighter welterweight final, at York Hall, led many to question what was left of Junior Witter.


But the Bradford born fighter followed up with victories over Kevin McIntyre, Nathan Graham, Arvydas Trizno and Colin Lynes, on the way to reclaiming the BBBofC British Welterweight title.


Awkward, constantly changing stance to open up angles and a powerful puncher, the Hitter keeps his opponents guessing and can quickly adapt and counter.


Junior has fought and won at every level of the sport and is in no rush to hang up his gloves just yet.
