After the success of current light-welterweight world champion, Josh Taylor, Scotland have produced another serious prospect in the form of 22-year-old light-heavyweight, Willy Hutchinson. Now promoted by Frank Warren, Hutchinson had a successful amateur career, becoming the first Scottish boxer to win gold at an amateur World Championships]
Since then, “The Hutch Train” has moved his record to 13-0, picking up nine knockouts along the way and has won every fight comfortably. He is scheduled to step down to super-middleweight to fight Lennox Clarke for the vacant British and Commonwealth titles in his toughest fight to date and we may finally see the Scotsman’s chin get tested and see him potentially overcome adversity for the first time.
His next fight shows he is ready to step up and start facing higher quality opponents and Hutchinson’s versatility allows him to switch between super-middleweight and a relatively poor light-heavyweight division. This makes us believe he has a genuine chance to win a world title within the next couple of years and he is priced at 5/1 to win any world title before the 1st of January 2023.
