Hearn steps in with trio of fight offers as Coyle / Woodhouse / Davies beef escalates

WBN 29/12/2017

British super-lightweight Tommy Coyle has been embroiled in a series of social media rows recently involving potential opponents Curtis Woodhouse and Ohara Davies.

Some of the ‘banter’ has dropped below the belt as Coyle attempts to secure a fight after ‘keeping his weight down over Christmas’.

The former British title challenger, out since a February stoppage win over Rakeem Noble, even expressed his frustrations on Twitter before gaining a direct response from promoter Eddie Hearn.

Coyle was handed three options by Hearn, a February 3rd clash at The O2 against Davies, with whom the 28 year-old has been involved in back and forth insults, or a drop back to lightweight to battle Commonwealth title holder Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd or Lonsdale Belt ruler Lewis Ritson by March.

The Hull man decided facing Dodd would be his preferred choice but was met by disdainful reactions from Woodhouse and Davies for his trouble.

The fans seem to be keen for Coyle to battle Davies judging by the buzz surrounding the pair, although as Hearn suggested there’s no shortage of options on the table for the Yorkshireman.
