Timlin Secures European Title Opportunity

Amy Timlin will look to add to the recent success of British women boxers when she challenges for the European super bantamweight title.

The 21-year-old from Southam, managed by Dave Coldwell, has been appointed challenger to Mary Romero for the Spaniard’s title.

Coldwell posted the news on Twitter today much to Timlin’s delight.

“Massive news. I’ve secured a shot at challenging for the European title. Absolutely buzzing. Not bad for 21 years old. European champion has a nice ring to it. Let’s win this title.”

Timlin last fought in October 2020 when she took on Carly Skelly for the vacant Commonwealth title. The fight ended a split draw with judge Bob Williams scoring it 96-95 for Timlin.

Mary Romero, 35, has had eight fights which has brought a record of (6-2, 2 KOs). The Murcia fighter landed the European title when she out-pointed Ivanka Ivanova in Puerto Lumbreras in January 2020.

Romero v Timlin is now out to purse bids with the deadline Monday, May 10.
