KENNY Anderson’s last fight was in front of 22,000 fans as he pushed George Groves all the way for the Commonwealth super middleweight title.

It will be something more intimate but equally as intim-ating when he fights at the Colne Muni on Sunday night.

The Scottish fighter, a former Commonwealth Games gold medal winner, is now based out of Maree Boxing in Gisburn.

He returns to action at the weekend against Sheffield’s Carl Wilde looking for a victory to put him back on course for a title shot.

The 28-year-old (right) troubled Groves in the early stages of that MEN clash back in November before being stopped midway through the 12 round contest.

But trainer Kevin Maree believes a good performance against Wilde could see his boxer get a shot at the British title – and a possible rematch with Groves who disposed James DeGale of the belt last month.

“It’s great that we have got Kenny fighting on a local bill because I think he has a great chance of a shot at the British title should he win.

“This is a chance for local fight fans to see a quality boxer in action.”

There will be plenty of local interest on the bill as well with home grown hero Shayne Singleton in action.

The classy Colne fighter is one of four East Lancs boxers on the card with Luke Blackledge and Stevie Taylor – who both fight out of Accrington – and Blackburn’s Ali Shah, who was once trained by Brendan Ingle, also in action.
