He was stopped within two rounds of his last contest, but Luke Wilton is adamant is on the verge of British and European title success.
It might seem strange for a fighter to crawl up of the canvas and make such bold claims, but ‘Winky’s’ defeat to Lee Haskin came after he jumped up two weights and took a fight at two days notice.
As a result the former British title challenger isn’t reading too much into the reverse and believes a return to flyweight will see him return to his best.
The Belfast fighter has now set his sights on British and European glory at the flyweight limit.
“I felt I had to get past the first four rounds to do any damage, as he was big and strong. I had everything against me the weight, preparation, size, strength and I was in his backyard. So it was a big ask,” Wilton told Irish-boxing.com
“The loss won’t affect my flyweight ratings, I’m ranked four in Europe at flyweight so I will pursue British or European titles now.”
