Liverpool’s Derry Mathews gets a second successive crack at the Commonwealth lightweight strap as he takes on local favourite Tommy Coyle, whilst Driffield Troll Hunter Curtis Woodhouse faces a tough test against Rochester-based 'Morroccon Machine' Joe Elfidh.
“I’m over the moon that two of my guys can go out there and show a massive audience what they’re capable of," said Coldwell.
"Derry and Tommy have been having a good go at each other on Twitter and they’re fighters that usually deliver so that promises to be an excellent fight. This is an excellent opportunity for Derry and if he’s switched on then he’ll do it in style. Tommy is a good fighter who deserves Derry’s full respect and he’ll be aiming to cause a big upset.”
Following his English title success at light welter, Woodhouse is dropping down to lightweight and looking to make an impact in the talent-laden division. He knows an impressive display against Elfidh could pave the way for more lucrative battles, and Coldwell is not ruling out a future clash between the former footballer and Derry Mathews.
“Can you imagine the drama that we’d see if them two managed to get in the ring together?” asked Coldwell.
“The pair of them only know one way to fight and I’m certain that we’d have a fight of the year contender on our hands. They’ve spent time sparring before and I’m sure that both fighters took lots from it but even though it’s a fight I’m definitely interested in making, both have to get through their respective fights on July 13th. Only then can I start looking at putting this on.”
