Crawley's Michael Alldis has been handed the chance to reclaim his British super-bantamweight title in his home town.

The Commonwealth title will also be up for grabs when Alldis takes on Scotsman Brian Carr at Crawley Leisure Centre on Monday January 28.

An added bonus will be the opportunity for Alldis to win the Lonsdale belt outright, having made two successful defences before losing his British crown on a controversial points decision to Patrick Mullings last July.

Since then, the 33-year-old has endured a torrid time, with Mullings being stripped of the title for taking drugs, Alldis losing a non-title fight to Frenchman Mahyar Monshipour and then a forlorn attempt by the Crawley man to be reinstated as champion.

Now, he will be fighting for the vacant British crown against Commonwealth title holder Carr and Alldis is promising a fresh start to his career.

He has split from trainer Alex Gower and is now working with former British super-middleweight champion James Cook.

Alldis said: "It was time for a change. I feel so much more confident now and you will see a new Michael Alldis.

"There is no way I will lose this fight. It just ain't going to happen. I was going to take the British Boxing Board to court but now I am just going to win my title back in the ring.

"I am not angry but I will take all my feelings out in the ring on the 28th. Unfortunately for Brian Carr, he is the man standing in my way."

Alldis will jointly top the bill with Richard Williams.
