Lindsay on Simpson vs Smith

31 August 2010

Martin Lindsay has his eye on two fights in the next few days, but will only be landing his bombs in one of them.

The British featherweight champion (16-0) faces Kenyan southpaw David Kiilu (33-10-2) in a non-title eight rounder at Rainton Meadows Arena, Houghton-le-Spring on September 11.

He also has one eye on this Saturdays Commonwealth championship clash between John Simpson and Stephen Smith where the winner will become his mandatory challenger.

Lindsay, 28, said, Simpson v Smith is a very hard fight to call, but I couldnt care less which one I defend my British title against.

I just hope there is someone who has the bottle to share a ring with me for my British crown.

Kiilu looks a good opponent and has more experience than anybody I have ever faced and even won a title at lightweight.

Promoter Frank Maloney added, It is such a headache getting Martin matched up because nobody wants to face him.

Ideally, I would have liked next weeks bout to be a British title defence but nobody wanted to know, although I am sure Simpson or Smith will be keen.
