Martin Lindsay v John Simpson, Preview

On the 15th of December we will witness the current British featherweight Champion Martin Lindsay (17-0) take on the ex British and Commonwealth holder John Simpson (21-7-0) in a battle for the British featherweight belt. The fight will take place in Lindsay’s backyard on the 15th of December at the King’s Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The undefeated champ Martin Lindsay will see Simpson as a stepping stone to greater success. He’s coming off the back of some fine wins against the likes of Paul Appleby, Alfred Tetteh, Jamie Arthur, and Yauheni Kruhlik. He will be looking to put one over his Scottish challenger in style to show he means business.

The challenger John Simpson will be extremely motivated after his recent loss to Stephen Smith which he was unfortunate to lose on a split decision. One thing about Simpson is he loves a challenge and is not afraid to step in the ring against anyone, he has some really good domestic names on his resume, (Youssef Al Hamidi, Paul Truscott, Stevie Bell, Paul Appleby, Andy Morris, Stephen Foster, Derry Mathews) and he will need to use all his experience he’s gained over the years to stand a chance against Martin Lindsay and his home fans.

the_budweiser – I’m going to pick Martin Lindsay to win this on points, Simpson’s tough and i think he’ll go the distance along with asking Lindsay some questions in the later rounds. Lindsay will start fast to show he means business, picking up most of the rounds early on, then tire in the later rounds, hanging on for a points win. Lindsay UD
