Josh will continue his march to a world title and I’m very excited about the all-Yorkshire clash for the British title between Nurse and Coyle. “Luke Campbell is looking to climb the World rankings after his impressive win in Sheffield and hot prospect Gamal Yafai will be up against some strong support and a very game and experienced Josh Wale when defending his Commonwealth title.”One of the world’s top prospects Ryan Burnett returns and heavyweight star Dillian Whyte will continue his charge in the division. There’s plenty more action and a full announcement will be made on Monday.”
