HUDDERSFIELD boxer Tyrone Nurse has been handed a crack at the English light-welterweight title.
The 23-year-old who won the Central area belt in February will face unbeaten holder Shayne Singleton in Manchester on Saturday, June 1.
The big show at Bowler’s Arena is being promoted by Dave Coldwell under the banner ‘Bring The Noise’, referring to Colne-based Singleton’s vociferous following.
And Nurse’s trainer Chris Aston has urged Huddersfield fight fans: “Get across there and make yourselves heard.”
While Singelton has 14 wins from 14, the first of them against Huddersfield’s Jason Thompson in 2009, fellow 23-year-old Nurse has lost just once in 26 outings.
He beat South Yorkshire’s Joe Elfidh in Doncaster to win the Central crown while Singleton saw off Curtis Woodhouse to claim the English title last month.
Aston hopes the winner will earn a shot at the British title, held by Darren Hamilton, who defends against Adil Anwar, the only man to beat Nurse, on July 6.
