Commonwealth title shot for Jess

Saintfield's Stuart Jess has landed a Commonwealth title shot  with  old foe, England's Barinder SinghSaintfield's Stuart Jess has landed a Commonwealth title shot - but has to put his recently won British belt on the line at the same time.
Jess was invited by old foe, England's Barinder Singh, to share the kickboxing ring again after Jess defeated him on a close points decision in Belfast in June.
Irate Singh, who believed he deserved better, challenged Jess to an immediate re-match, a 10-round contest for the Commonwealth and British crowns.
It's a mammoth challenge for inexperienced Jess, who rose to the top of the rankings after his shock British title win, because he hasn't gone beyond five rounds in the amateur ranks.
Adding to the pressure, the showdown in Leicester on September 10, will be televised.
Jess' coach, former world champion Billy Murray said: "Stuart has time on his side and could have waited for a chance like this come along. But now that it has sooner than expected, he does not want to miss out.
"He has come a long way in a short time and I am confident he can cope with a 10-round challenge and with the big support that will be backing Singh."
Gary Hamilton may also be out on the Leicester bill and fresh from his win at the weekend over former world champion Stuart McGowan of Dundee.
"I've only fought once this year and I just managed to scrape a draw on that occasion," said Hamilton, it was great to get back in the ring - since the Mohammed Samir fight last December I've done a lot of soul searching but after this fight I feel I'm getting back to my best, I hope Jagtar Singh Johal can make the fight for me - he is a really good promoter so I have good faith he'll get me on this card too."
