British boxer Hamilton uses rap to bait rival Woodhouse

British Light Welterweight champion Darren Hamilton has swapped punches for lyrics to tell Curtis Woodhouse he’ll put him into retirement when he defends his belt at the Hull Ice Arena on February 22.

Hamilton will claim the Lord Lonsdale belt outright if he defeats Woodhouse, continuing his fantastic form after taking the title from Ashley Theophane in May and defending the crown against Stevie Williams and Adil Anwar.

The 35 year old titlist has clashed with the challenger on Twitter in the build-up to the fight, and has posted a video on the internet leaving Woodhouse in no doubt as to who will win on the night.

Hamilton’s defence against Woodhouse is part of a bumper night of action in Hull, where Olympic Gold medal hero Luke Campbell tackles his fifth professional contest.

Young Hull talents Zak Collins, Joel Haigh and Charlie Paynton continue their pro journeys on the bill, while experienced Liverpool Super Middleweight Tony Dodson appears on the card with an eye on a major bout in Liverpool on March 15.
