Cromer boxer Ryan Walsh will make the first defence of his British featherweight belt next month.

The 29-year-old will headline promoter Frank Warren’s first show of 2016, at the iconic York Hall venue in the heart of London’s East End.

Walsh made history in September when he beat Samir Mouneimne to win the strap and, with brother Liam holding the super-featherweight version, they became the first twins to hold British belts at the same time.

Now Ryan wants the Lonsdale belt for keeps – and to add the Commonwealth title to join Liam as a double-double champion.

Ryan opponent for his January 22 date has yet to be announced although, interestingly the undercard includes Mitchell Smith, who is desperate to take on the Cromer fighter.
