Lightweights Gavin Rees (36-1-1, 17 KOs) and Derry Mathews (30-6-1, 16 KOs) meet again for the European lightweight belt on the undercard of Kell Brook’s July 7 show in Motorpoint Arena Sheffield. The card also features another European title rematch when Kerry Hope (17-3, 1 KO) faces Greg Proksa (26-1, 19 KOs) in a middleweight clash. Brook will officially announce his opponent on Sky Sports on Thursday but word is it’s Carson Jones.

Undefeated Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (15-0, 11 KOs) will now face Robert “Super” Osiobe (11-4, 6 KOs) in an eight-round super featherweight battle in an off-TV bout on Friday at the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas. Barthelemy had originally been scheduled to face Aalan Martinez, but an injury forced his withdrawal and the removal of the fight from the televised portion of the show.

Unbeaten welterweight Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (14-0, 10 KOs) will make his return on the undercard of Victor Ortiz-Andre Berto on June 23 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
