By Tom Gray: Kris Carslaw tops the bill at the Kevin Hall on Friday night with the second defence of his British Masters light-middleweight title. The Paisley resident will be looking to win his fourteenth straight professional contest when he takes on Birmingham’s Dee Mitchell.
Carslaw will have added incentive as Prince Arron is set to make a flying visit to Glasgow to assess whether the undefeated star is a worthy contender for the British title. Arron defeated Sam Webb in a contender for fight of the year and will be ringside.
Promoter Chris Gilmour said; ’It was already an important fight for Kris, but having the British champion sitting ringside is significant. Arron has the option of a voluntary defence, but he needs to know that he’s facing a credible contender because his own career is at an all-time high and he’s looking for a fight that will appeal to fans and viewers on Sky.
On a packed card former Commonwealth lightweight champion Willie Limond returns to action with the aim of bouncing back from defeat at the hands of legendary former champion Erik Morales in Mexico last September. Limond has a record of 33-3 (8 KO’s), his only other setbacks coming against Alex Arthur and Amir Khan.
