Lawrence Okolie vs Jack Massey confirmed as the British and Commonwealth cruiserweight champion has his first fight under Shane McGuigan.
Lawrence Okolie vs Jack Massey will take place on the Matchroom show on July 6 at Manchester Arena.
In what will be the first fight for British and Commonwealth cruiserweight champion Okolie under new trainer Shane McGuigan, he defends both belts against 16-0 Derbyshire man Massey, who will enjoy the bulk of support given he trains locally under Rob Rimmer. The unbeaten challenger has been targeting Okolie since late last year.
Also on the show, it’s Preston against Blackpool at super-welter as Scott Fitzgerald, last seen upsetting Anthony Fowler and later telling us he did so in "second gear", meets veteran former world title challenger Brian Rose.
Further details on the show, including the main event, will be confirmed next week.
