Johnny Coyle will defend his Southern Area Light Welterweight title at York Hall Bethnal Green on October 10, live on the Matchroom Fight Pass.
Coyle landed the title at the east London boxing mecca in May with a points win over Philip Bowes, and the Essex southpaw is turning the venue into a favourite home having landed the Prizefighter Welterweight title there in April 2014 with impressive wins over former European king Jason Cook, current British champion Sam Eggington and Irish amateur star Paddy Gallagher.
Coyle’s defence against an opponent to be named soon tops a night showcasing some great young talent with action for unbeaten Essex Light Middleweight Ben Hall, Watford Featherweight stylist Reece Bellotti, Brixton Cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain, Feltham Lightweight Michael O’Rourke, Morden Welterweight Adam Salman, Crystal Palace Super Middleweight Craig Richards and a second pro outing following his debut at The O2 on September 12 for Light Heavyweight prospect Jake Ball.
