Unbeaten St Neots fighter Tommy Martin will start 2016 with a bang – by fighting for the Commonwealth Super-Lightweight title.

Matchroom Boxing have this morning confirmed Martin will take on John Wayne Hibbert in a mouth-watering battle in January. The exact date and venue of the fight is still to be finalised.

Hibbert (30) has won 16 of his 19 fights and also holds the WBC Inter-Continmental Super-Lightweight belt.

Martin, nine years his opponent’s junior, has powered to victory in all 13 fights to date.

His last appearance in the ring was back in September when he stopped Michael Devine to win the vacant WBA Continental Super-Lightweight crown.
