Lindsey date set as Sexton nets Williams

Martin Lindsey will make the first defence of his British featherweight title against Welshman Jamie Arthur on February 5 at the Newport Centre, Gwent.

Promoter Frank Maloney won the purse bids for the fight and will give Arthur home advantage.

The British Boxing Board of Control also announced, as expected, that Commonwealth heavyweight champion Sam Sexton will now face British champion Danny Williams.

Purse bids for the big clash will be opened on December 9 and Frank Warren is expected to win the offers.
