Darren Till Announces Move to 185, But Leaves Door Open to More Bouts at Welterweight
By FCF Staff
It looks like Darren Till’s days competing at 170 are over, at least for the time being.
The British fighter, who is coming off a one sided loss to UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley last month, recently announced the following in a blog post at Paddy Power.com.
I’m a big dude for welterweight to be honest, so that’s probably going to be my last fight at that weight.
Welterweight isn’t fully gone for me, but I’m going to be happy going up to middleweight now and I’ll be strong at that weight not having to cut as much weight.
…I’ll have a few fights at middleweight and you never know, down the line if Woodley is still about then I can have another go at him, that’s a rematch I want.
Till had talked about the possibility of moving up to middleweight at some juncture, particularly after he missed weight for a bout with Stephen Thompson earlier this year. The Liverpool fighter won that bout via decision.
