Matchroom Boxing’s October 27 Copper Box show takes shape with trio of title bouts added

Ryan Walsh will defend his British featherweight title in a rematch with Isaac Lowe to take place at Copper Box Arena in London on October 27.

In a second confirmed UK championship bout, Ted Cheeseman and Asinia Byfield will battle it out for the vacant super-welterweight strap.

The trio of bouts is rounded off by a Commonwealth defence by 126 pound belt holder Ryan Doyle against the emerging Jordan Gill, trained by Dave Coldwell.

Walsh and Lowe previously shared a stalemate back in February but were both keen to duke it out again for home bragging rights before chasing their European dream.

Current champion Walsh, 32, already holds the Lonsdale Belt outright and will be eyeing a victory before possibly leaving the title behind for a 2019 run at the higher level.

The pair have a common foe in Dennis Ceylan, who defeated Walsh before a drew with Lowe prior to being tested positive for a banned substance.

At 154 pounds, Cheeseman has been catching the eye recently with triumphs over the likes of Carson Jones and Paul Upton.

Top domestic level has been on the cards for 2018 all year and ‘The Big Cheese’ can cement his place at the helm by claiming the vacant belt in the capital.

A fight with Anthony Fowler potentially awaits the winner, whilst Cheeseman will begin a huge favorite to win against one-loss Byfield.

Finally – and back at featherweight, Doyle bids to build on his stunning win over Reece Bellotti opposite the talented and undefeated Gill.

Doyle had suffered a few setbacks before hitting the Matchroom big time with a stoppage of Bellotti, whilst Gill has been primed for this moment all his career until the guidance of Coldwell.

Training alongside the likes of Tony Bellew and Jamie McDonnell has been a steady learning curve for Gill, who has already been tipped to take the strap from Doyle when the pair eventually trade blows.

More contests are set to be added by Matchroom Boxing and Eddie Hearn in the coming days and weeks.
