Dennis Hobson is hoping a ‘winner takes all’ clash between middleweight champions, Liam Cameron and Jason Welborn, can be arranged, after Welborn recently won the domestic crown.
In an upset, Midlander Welborn, 23-6 (7), gatecrashed the title scene after beating former British belt holder Tommy Langford via split-decision on May 4 in Walsall.
With Sheffield’s Liam Cameron, 21-5 (9), recently making a spectacular first defence of his Commonwealth strap by taking out Brighton’s Nick Jenman in just two rounds, promoter Hobson says a match between the champions makes sense, would be a great fight for the public, and would give the winner the perfect platform to move on to even bigger things.
“I think Tommy [Langford] and his team thought it was just going to be a routine defence against Welborn,” explained Hobson, who has guided Clinton Woods, Jamie McDonnell and Stuart Hall onto world titles. “We’ve wanted to do Langford versus Cameron for a while now but they’ve avoided it. Liam stopped Tommy in the amateurs and they haven’t wanted to know.
“They’ve done that defence [against Welborn] thinking they’ll then vacate and move onto the European Title but obviously he’s come unstuck. I think Welborn is similar to Liam Cameron in that he’s had some losses but those experiences have improved him.
“A fight against Welborn is one we’d definitely like to get involved in, or even Langford if he fancied a pop at the Commonwealth. We’d be happy to fight either, but Welborn would be great and we could put both titles on the line. It would be a great fight, and there’d be plenty of publicity. We’re up for it and it’s just a case of getting around a table with people being sensible, and hopefully we can get it on and have another great night of boxing.”
