MALMESBURY boxer Joe Hughes will take on potentially the biggest fight of his professional career in December, it was revealed today.

Hughes will challenge Sweden's undefeated European super lightweight champion Anthony Yigit for that belt in Leicester on December 2.

The Wiltshire man, 27, fought to a fine draw in his last fight, against British super lightweight champion Tyrone Nurse in April, and has been waiting patiently for his next big ring chance.

It will only be his second fight in 12 months after he won the vacant English super lightweight title with a unanimous decision over Andy Keates last December, the second time he had held that strap after a victory over Anthony Upton in 2015

It will be Hughes fifth successive title fight, having also lost to Jack Catterall for the WBO Inter-Continental super lightweight title in Bolton in May of last year.

The Yigit fight will come on the Cyclone Promotions' 'All or Nothing' card at Leicester Arena, at which Swindon's Luke 'The Duke' Watkins will also make the first defence of his Commonwealth cruiserweight title against former British title challenger Mike Stafford.

Fellow Swindon fighter Ryan Martin also has a big ring assignment pencilled in, taking on Ludlow's Craig Morris in an English welterweight title eliminator on the same bill.

Tickets for the event are priced from £30 and are available by contacting Hughes on 07878 454570.
