Derbyshire Predicts Cayman War

 
Craig Derbyshire says it will be a guaranteed war when he clashes with Matt Windle this Friday, December 8th, for the Commonwealth Light Flyweight crown.

Windle will defend his belt against the Doncaster fighter at the Lions Centre in Grand Cayman - with all the action FREE to watch LIVE on Fightzone.

Birmingham's Windle - the 'Punching Poet' - won the title in 2022, stopping formerly unbeaten South African Siphelele Myeza in 11 pulsating rounds.

Former English Super Flyweight champ, Derbyshire, has a hugely deceptive 8-29-4 (2) record but is known as a man who can give top fighters lots of trouble, particularly if there is a belt on the line.

Ahead of the mouth-watering affair, Craig believes this is a contest that will be blistering.

"I just think it's going to be a really hard fight," said the 32-year-old. "He's a come forward fighter but he can box as well, so I'm expecting a bit of everything from him.

"He's a very solid fighter and is never in a boring fight - I've never seen a fight of his that I've wanted to turn off! He's very entertaining and a very game lad.
"We're both come forward fighters and this is going to be a great fight. Styles make fights and I'm really looking forward to it, this is going to be one to watch!"
