CHRIS JENKINS is looking to put a difficult spell behind him when he faces Tyrone Nurse for the vacant British light-welterweight title on July 18 in Manchester.

By the time he fights, the Welshman will have been inactive for almost 10 months after cancellations and a stomach virus which scuppered his original date with Nurse in April.

The unbeaten 26-year-old is yet to fight a full 12 rounds but is confident he has the ability to prevail and become British champion.
