Welsh boxer Dale Evans will challenge Bradley Skeete for the British welterweight title on 8 July.

Evans is the mandatory challenger after defeating Mike Towell in a contest marked by tragedy last year.

Scottish boxer Towell died in hospital after sustaining serious injuries in the fight with Evans.

"Nothing would make me happier than winning the British title and taking it up to Dundee and showing Mike's family and his friends," Evans said.

Evans and Skeete 's bout will take place at the Copper Box Arena in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London
