John Simpson steps in to face Tommy Coyle on November 2 Hull bill


Recommended Posts

Former British super featherweight champion John Simpson steps in to replace injured Gavin Rees against Hull's Tommy Coyle at the sold-out Hull Arena on November 2, live on Sky Sports.

Simpson steps up to lightweight to face local star Coyle, who is back in action after a good performance against Derry Mathews for the Commonwealth title at Craven Park Stadium in July.

Simpson enters the contest off the back of a cracking win over Choi Tseveenpurev in May, a bout shortlisted for the Fight of the Year award by the British Boxing Board of Control.

“We went from one war with Gavin to another with John and Tommy, and the fight fans know what to expect from these two,” said Hearn.

“I was disappointed for Gavin – he won’t feature again until 2014 now.”

Coyle’s clash with Simpson features as part of a cracking line-up of action in Hull as Luke Campbell MBE fights for the third time as a pro and the second time in his hometown, against Derbyshire's Lee Connolly.

Unbeaten Sheffield Heavyweight Richard Towers faces Australian Lucas Browne in an eliminator for the Commonwealth title, Driffield lightweight Curtis Woodhouse returns after his Commonwealth title challenge and three more Hull favourites are in action – featherweight Samir Mouneimne, light welter Zak Collins and lightweight Joel Haigh.
