Default Derry Matthews v Steve Foster Jnr rematch!

According to FWTV Derry Matthews will defend his WBU Featherweight Title against Steve Foster Jnr on April 5th in Bolton.

This bout will be chief support on the undercard of Khan v Kristjansen.

The pair previously fought in Oct' 2006 when Foster Jnr lost by UD to Matthews.

Foster Jnr has dropped back down to featherweight after venturing up to super feather against Alex Arthur recently.

So, who wins this one?

Go Foster - Hope he gets revenge. Mathews boxed out of his Skin last time and Foster was so Lethargic would have liked him to stay at superfeather.

I'm rooting for Foster Jnr too.

I recall him saying he felt much stronger at super featherweight before the Arthur bout but this fight gives him the opportunity to win a Title off an old foe so he has a clear incentive to come back down in weight for this one.

The Heamatoma (SP?) that Steveie got in the first fight really affected his performance so he never really got going. Mathews boxed well too though - so not taking anything away from Derry.

Think that this rematch is a great fight in the making. Derry looking good at the moment and Foster Jnr was fantastic against Arthur.

Roll on April 5th! Same day as the grand national too - I think ....

Stegsie - do you know if Foster Jnr is planning to remain at featherweight?

What weight do you think he is most comfortable at?

Welcome to the brit forum Smirf.

What do you think of the tactics Derry Matthews used in his fight with John Simpson?

Matthews used his height and reach well to box Foster at a distance, Foster's pretty come forward pressure fighter who was troubled by Derry's jab.

Wasn't Foster supposed to be weight drained for feather so he moved up to Super Feather though?

Hoping for another Matthews decision, I thought there was potential In him when he fought Foster Jr the first time, he just needs to keep It cleaner.
