June 4 promises to be a special night for British boxing fans as Gavin Rees takes on Andy Murray in Cardiff for the European lightweight title before Carl Froch’s Super Six semi-final against Glen Johnson in America – both on Sky Sports.
Rees and Andy Murray tussle for the vacant strap at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, with tickets on sale now for what promises to be a great night of boxing on Saturday Night Fight Night.
Then in the early hours of Sunday morning, Nottingham star Froch lays his WBC super-middleweight title on the line in Atlantic City against Jamaican Glen Johnson, with a place in the Super Six final up for grabs.
Former WBA Super-Lightweight champion Rees welcomes the unbeaten Murray onto his home turf, with Rees returning to title action after vacating his British belt earlier in the year and Murray fights for his first major title after claiming Irish and EBU-EU honours in his 24 fight unbeaten stint as a pro.
Rees and Murray will follow a high-class undercard as Wales’ former IBO and European champion Jason Cook and Cardiff’s Frankie Borg add more local flavour. From Liverpool, former British and English super-middleweight champ Tony Dodson and ex-England lightweight champ Steve Williams make the short journey to Wales, while Belfast’s Barry McGuigan prospect Carl Frampton aims to move the unbeaten start to his career into double figures – opponents for the five fighters will be announced soon.
Tickets for the Gavin Rees v Andy Murray European title clash and full undercard are now on sale priced £30 unreserved and £50 ringside from the Motorpoint Arena Box-Office on 02920 224488.
