Tommy Langford asks Social Media

who he should defend his British Title against

British Champion Tommy Langford has taken to Twitter and Facebook to ask the boxing fans who they think he should give a shot at his Lonsdale Middleweight belt. The social media site went crazy with every boxing fan naming a boxer and giving a reason why they should get the. Shot. The three names that popped up the most were Jason Welborn (31) from Tividale whose record stands at 27 fight with 21 wins and 6 defeats, Jack Arnfield (28) from Blackpool whose record stands at 24 fights 22 wins and 2 defeats and last but not least the Olympian Slayer, Birmingham Boxing Column's Boxer of 2016, Birmingham's own Craig Cunningham (29) whose record stands at 19 fights 18 wins and only 1 defeat.

Langford's Social Media exploded with fan giving there view.

Anthony Tonks put a case for Jason Welborn, he put up - THIS is the only fight real boxing fans neutral boxing fans will be interested in.

Tommy Lohmus put up - Welborn at the baggies ground as well mate?

There was a lot of support for Welborn with Jason Welborn also adding to the status by putting up - Like you said forgot the talking get in on. If you lived in Westbrom you would know what people want to see, All the best in picking your fight, saying no more. Ready and waiting.

There were a few fans who mentioned Jack Arnfield who has already contested for the British title against Nick Blackwell losing on points and he does have a good record but has lost 1 of his last 6 fights.

Just like Jason Welborn, Craig Cunningham has had a lot of support on social media.

Lee Jones who is a professional boxer stated -Craig Cunningham was scheduled before the interim fight came available so seems fair to reschedule that one, also won against Jason not that long ago.

Sam Stevenson put up - Not Welborn for me, Lost twice last year once against Cunningham. yeah he beat Morrison but he was massively hyped by the sky/matchroom clan! Would like to see him against Arnfield, then the winner take on Tommy!

Kenny Burns put up - Franks scared of Craig Cunningham I'm not saying Tommy is by far but Craig's the most dangerous fight out the lot.

My post was this - Craig Cunningham deserves a shot the Olympian Slayer should of had one already. Be great if this happens in Brum.

Dexter's Thoughts

All 3 of these fighters have got credible reasons why they should get a title shot, but I will say now that in my opinion Craig Cunningham deserves the chance to take on Langford for the most prestigious belt in boxing, he is undefeated in his last 7 bouts winning 2 Midlands area titles at 2 different weights, one of them beating Welborn and then beating 20 to 1 odds and beating Anthony Ogogo to become the WBC International middleweight champion.He was also scheduled to fight Langford this year until the Interim world title shot came up for Langford. This alone should make Cunningham the number 1 choice to fight Langford, he has also beaten Welborn already and in my opinion Arnfield had his chance already after losing to Blackwell.

So to clarify the Birmingham Boxing Column would like to see our Boxer of 2016 Craig Cunningham to fight Tommy Langford.
