JASON Welborn bids to put his world title defeat against Jarrett Hurd behind him when he attempts to bring the Commonwealth super welterweight title back to the Black Country on Saturday night.

Welborn faces the unbeaten Liverpudlian JJ Metcalf at Leeds First Direct Arena on the undercard of Josh Warrington's IBF world featherweight title defence against Kid Galahad.

Metcalf has won all 19 of his contests to date but Welborn is unfazed and claimed: "It's just good to be back. I was devastated after my last fight to Hurd, so it didn't really matter who they put me up against, because it's all about winning now and I can't wait for Saturday to come around."

Welborn has recently set up his own skip business in the Rowley Regis area.

He added: "The skip business is going well, although I've had a couple of mates looking after it for me over the past month while I stepped up the training.

"It's not about the money now. I just want to get back to where I was before I boxed Hurd.

"I did think about retiring at the time, but there's still a few good more fights left in me yet.

"JJ is a good prospect but he has the kind of style that I like to face, so I won't have to go looking for him.

"I've come up against big prospects before and I've done it the hard way.

"I'm going to enjoy this fight and get the win anyway I have to.

"Promoter Frank Warren has put together a really good card and it's a great bill for me to be on because I believe it's going to put me right back in the picture again."
