Derry Mathews will take on Adam Dingsdale on October 25 in Liverpool

Mathews continues his quest to secure fairytale world title shot

DERRY MATHEWS will face Adam Dingsdale for the vacant WBA Continental lightweight championship on the big Echo Arena show on Saturday October 25.

Mathews features as chief-support on a stacked title card headlined by Paul Butler’s record-breaking world title challenge against IBF super-flyweight champion Zolani Tete, plus Liverpool favourites Liam Smith, Kevin Satchell and Tom Stalker all in title action.

The 31-year-old has his first fight since defeating Martin Gethin in May to become a two-time British Lightweight Champion. Mathews perforated his eardrum in the fight and was unable to defend his title against Terry Flanagan so vacated the title to allow Gethin and Terry Flanagan to contest it.
