Campbell-Brizuela, Coyle-Katsidis on for Oct 25

Luke Campbell takes on Daniel Brizuela and Tommy Coyle faces Michael Katsidis on a huge night for both men at the Ice Arena in Hull on October 25.

Campbell boxes for his first title in his first 12-round fight, with the dangerous Brizuela standing in his way of landing the vacant WBA Inter-Continental Lightweight belt. The Argentine returns to the venue where he shared the ring with Coyle in a fight of the year contender in February, where both men hit the canvas four times before Coyle stopped Brizuela to defend his IBF International title.

Coyle defends that crown once again as Australian star Katsidis returns to Britain to tackle the rising Hull talent, and the former two-time WBO interim champion is looking for a repeat of his stoppage win over Kevin Mitchell.
