Undefeated British lightweight champion Joe Cordina will fight fellow Welshman Gavin Gwynne in his first title defence, on Saturday, 31 August at London's O2 Arena.

Gwynne, 29, is undefeated in 12 contests while Olympian Cordina, 27, has won nine fights and is also the Commonwealth lightweight champion.

No bill has yet been confirmed for the O2 on Saturday, 31 August.

But it is likely to be on the Luke Campbell v Vasyl Lomachenko bill.

Campbell and Lomachenko are set to meet with the vacant WBC lightweight title on the line.
