Windle Gets Commonwealth title Shot

‘The punching poet’ Matt Windle has been given a crack at the vacant Commonwealth Light Flyweight title. ‘Matt Man' will be taking on the unbeaten Neil McCubbin on Friday, June 11th to be streamed live on Fightzone.

Windle (30) from Birmingham has won five of his nine fights with 1 ending in a draw. Windle's last two defeats have come in ten-round Midland’s area title fights against David Seymour and now two-time European Champ Ijaz Ahmed. Windle is trained by the very experienced Spencer McCracken senor and has been training at Cogan’s Corner throughout Lockdown.

McCubbin from Scotland made his debut in October of 2018 and has won all five of his contests with 4 out of his five fights being over four rounds and his last one being over six. McCubbin has one stoppage to his name stopping debutant Blessed Sithole in the first round.

The show is set to stream live on Fightzone from Sheffield on June 11th and is part of an ever-growing fight card.

Dexter’s Thought’s

It will be great to see Matt Windle back in the ring in a championship contest. Matt's last two fights have been for the Flyweight Midlands area title where he has lost in very close fights on points against fighters with a lot more experience than McCubbin. I have had the privilege to see the ‘punching poet’ training throughout lockdown at Cogan’s Corner with the guidance of Spencer McCracken senor. After watching Matt spar and looking at McCubbin's record unless he is Scotland’s best-kept secret, I can only see a Windle win. McCubbin has not gone more than six rounds and I think the later rounds will be when Windle takes control. Windle has also been in with much more experience fighters and I think this will keep Matt in good stead to win not just a Midlands area, but a Commonwealth title which will also get him into the Bbcolumn Hall of Fame which of course is ever Midlands fighters’ goal.
