Gary Hamilton is gearing up for a return to the ring in a WKN Super fight at 66kg against French star Bruce Codron for the welterweight WKN world title on October 2nd 2010.

The fight will take place in the French City of Mazan and will be promoted by Mr David Blanc.

The WKN world office is currently in the final stages of negotiations for a WKN World Super fight at 66kg between champion Bruce Codron and Northern Ireland’s former world champion Gary Hamilton. Frenchman Codron is a two time world champion in the 64.400kilo division and is the current European champion.

Hamilton who had 3 successful defences of his lightweight 60kilo title has been off with injury for a little over a year but has remained active within the sport and is ready to return to the ring to challenge for the welterweight crown.

His coach Murray feels that it is a big ask to jump into the 66kilo division which is 3 weights above his normal championship weight. “However Hamilton is getting older” said Murray

“He is naturally getting heavier and that was the main problem with his last couple of outings. The weight has not been right and Hamilton has struggled to make it. Hopefully this will be a defining moment for the kid from Belfast who has been at the ProKick gym from 15 years of age.”

Murray went on to say “We will leave no stone unturned this time to secure a world title for Gary. So it is back to basics, hard work, boot camps and lots of fitness training because he certainly has the talent.”

“Let’s hope we can secure a warm up bout next month and on the Celts Vs Viking event on September 12th in Belfast.”

The event is promoted in the French City of Mazan by Mr David Blanc in agreement with the WKN France, WKN representative will be Habib Bakir.
