TUES­DAY June 27, 2017

THIS Satur­day ( July 1), pro­moter Stefy Bull stages a bumper card at the Don­caster Dome, which fea­tures no less than four do­mes­tic ti­tle fights and plenty of lo­cal tal­ent, in­clud­ing for­mer world ti­tle chal­lenger Gavin Mcdon­nell.

Topping the bill is Barns­ley’s Josh Wale, who fights Dundee’s Jamie Wil­son for the va­cant Bri­tish ban­tamweight ti­tle.

Wale last fought in March when he out­pointed Ramesh Ah­madi for the English ti­tle at the same venue. Wil­son is a for­mer Com­mon­wealth su­per-fly­weight ti­tle chal­lenger.

There are two va­cant English ti­tle fights on the show. The first is for the light­weight ver­sion, which will be con­tested by Lee Ap­p­le­yard and Steve Bro­gan over 10 rounds. Samir Mouneimne and Razaq Na­jib will meet for the feath­er­weight ti­tle, also over 10.

At su­per-mid­dleweight, Daniel Slaney fights Richard Thomas for the va­cant Cen­tral Area ti­tle.
