Junior Witter has a perfect chance to enhance his reputation in America after being offered a fight against Mexican Jose Luis Castillo.



The Sheffield fighter was contacted by a US promoter to say Castillo, who lost in four rounds to Ricky Hatton last June, wanted a match.


WBC champion Witter badly wants US TV exposure, however his advisers may be against a bout with the former world champ.


Trainer Dominic Ingle told the Sheffield Star: "If Junior was to go over and beat him easily - which he is capable of doing - people will just say Castillo is washed up and was when Hatton beat him."


The Sheffield camp were hoping to get their light welterweight star back in action around April.



Retire?


Witter's last fight saw him successfully defend his crown for the second time after stopping Vivian Harris at Doncaster last September.

I want to see him take this fight. I would love to see it go to a decision, too. Although I'm sure Witter would win I just want to see him try to knock Ricky after fighting the same fighter Ricky whipped who's skills are even more diminished now.

holt would get knocked spark by witter,,,,i dont like witter at all but he's a very good fighter.

torres would have a punchers chance against him but would be made look silly by witters speed and skill.

hell, i even think witter would out-slick paulie.

witters not my cup of tea but he's certintly a better fighter than torres and holt.

I agree with Tommy that Witter would beat both Torres and Holt fairly clearly. And believe me, this is no British thing, the Brits hate Witter more than any country in the world:laugh:
the brits hate witter more than the americans hate calzaghe. LOL

he can fight though, i wouldn't take that away from him,,,,id put him 2 at 140 behind hatton.

After watching Malignaggi-Ngoujou id have to agree. Malignaggi was at #2 for me and i was very impressed with him vs. N'Dou, but he looked poor on Sat. I think Torres is underrated though, and could beat either if they under-estimated his power.
