Welshman Jay Harris (18-1, 9 KOs) will look to earn another world title tilt when he faces stiff-punching Ricardo Sandoval (18-1, 13 KOs) in a final eliminator for the IBF flyweight crown, currently held by Sunny Edwards, at the University of Bolton Stadium on June 25.
The bill also sees two former world title holders clash as Paul Butler (32-2 15 KOs) meets Joseph Agbeko (38-5, 28 KOs) in a 10-round final eliminator for the WBO bantamweight title.
In more action, Hosea Burton (25-2, 11 KOs) and Liam Conroy (18-6-1, 9 KOs) will collide in a final eliminator for the British light-heavyweight title, with undefeated Irish lightweight Gary Cully (12-0, 6 KOs) defending his WBO European lightweight belt against an opponent to be announced.
Also on the card, featherweight Tyrone McCullagh (14-1, 6 KOs) makes his long-awaited comeback after 16 months out of the ring. Unbeaten prospects Pierce O’Leary (6-0, 2 KOs) and Jordan Reynolds (1-0, 0 KOs) also feature.
Discussions are currently ongoing regarding having fans in attendance for the show, with an update expected early next week.
MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton said: “We are delighted to be back with a tremendous card later this month which is full of competitive 50-50 fights. Jay Harris has been desperate for this fight with Ricardo Sandoval for a while so we are thrilled to be working with Golden Boy so that it is finally here. It is certain to be non-stop action from start to finish and we’re hopeful that Jay can get the win and move a step closer to another world title shot.
“The same can be said for Paul Butler. He is on the cusp of another world title shot but knows he can’t look past Joseph Agbeko, who has shared the ring with Guillermo Rigondeaux and Abner Mares in his career, and heads into this fight on the back of nine straight victories.
“The fantastic fight between Hosea Burton and Liam Conroy could steal the show, and it’s great to see Gary Cully back defending his title after his blistering stoppage win last time out.”
