Timlin Gets Date For Commonwealth Rematch
‘The Baby face Assassin’ Amy Timlin has been given the date for her Commonwealth title rematch against Carly Skelly. Timlin (21) from Southam Warwickshire took on Skelly (34) in October of last year for the Commonwealth Super Bantamweight title which ended in a spit draw. The fight itself was a cracker that went back and fourth with both unbeaten fighters having joy as they went toe too toe for 10 two minute rounds. The fight will be on the undercard of the Avanesyan, Kelly fight which will be aired live on Sky sports on Saturday 20th February. This is set to be another cracking fight with Timlin looking to claim the Commonwealth title and her place in the Bbcolumn ‘Hall of Fame'.
I really enjoyed there first encounter as both fighters showed how female boxing has progressed over the last few years. The first fight was a very close one which I had as a draw and have been looking forward to this rematch ever since. I did think Timlin made it hard for herself as she was drawn into a toe too toe battle where if she had used her boxing skills she would have won with ease. I can see this fight being as good as the first but just hope Timlin uses her technical boxing as I think if she does she will win with ease.
