ANDY TILL, the 29-year-old milkman from Northholt, set up the chance of shot at the world title last night when he retained his British light-middleweight title in Bethnal Green, London, with a third- round stoppage of the challenger, Tony Collins from Yateley. Till floored Collins at the beginning of the third with a left hook, and trapped him on the ropes when he rose after the count had reached six.
