It’s Coyle v Gethin This Saturday!

This weekend the plethora of action in British boxing rings continues with a bill in Hull at the Hull Ice Arena.

Topping the bill in Hull, on Saturday night, will be Tommy Coyle with the fighter taking on Martin Gethin, the former British lightweight champion.

However, Coyle is looking beyond the Gethin fight towards a huge fight with his friend and fellow Hull fighter Luke Campbell this summer.

It is a clash that is eagerly anticipated and one which Coyle has openly remarked about to the media,

“My fight with Luke would be the biggest event that has ever happened in Hull.

“I am so, so excited about it. Luke and I are quite good friends but I have a job to do and I want to be No 1.

'Luke wants to be No 1 as well, so we will put that friendship aside and go to war. I am sure once the fight is over, whatever the result, we will embrace and be friends as we are now – but I believe that I would beat Luke.”


We’ve a feeling that Luke Campbell might offer the same prediction. But returning to the fight, this Saturday night, against Gethin, Coyle further added when talking to the media,

“Martin is first and foremost and I have to do a job. The fight with Luke is hanging over my head but I have to do a job on Martin for that fight to remain as big as it is.

'I will concentrate on Martin because he is a tough, tough opponent. He has won a British title, something I have never won before, so I have to be at my very best.

“You don’t win British titles without being a good fighter. He has boxed in good company at a high level. He applies relentless pressure, he doesn’t stop coming forward and he has a very good left upper-cut, he likes to use his left hand a lot and I will have to be at my very best to chalk up a win against Martin.'


It has all the makings of being a classic fight and one to tune into on Sky Sports on Saturday night.
