Jason Booth British Champion

Jason Booth will defend his British super-bantamweight title and will also get the chance to reclaim his old Commonwealth crown when he tackles fellow three weight champion Jamie Arthur in the spring of 2011.


Booth 33, from Nottingham, whose world title bid ended in a narrow points defeat to IBF champion Steve Molitor last time out, was originally due to face British Boxer of the Year Rendall Munroe but the boxing binman considered the domestic crown a step backwards.

“It’s an ideal fight for Jason after local rival Rendall Munroe pulled out,” said Booth’s manager Jimmy Gill in thisisnottingham.co.uk. “It is a good little pay day and keeps him ticking over for his European title shot.


“Frank Maloney is promoting it, so it doesn’t have to go out to purse bids, which means Jason will have eight weeks to prepare.

“It looks like it will be at the York Hall, which suits Jay down to the ground. I can only see one winner, because Jay would beat Arthur seven days a week.”
