HOSEA BURTON will defend his British light-heavyweight title against Frank Buglioni on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s lightweight title fight against Jorge Linares on September 24 at Manchester Arena.

Promoter Eddie Hearn won the purse bids to stage the contest earlier today, and swiftly announced it will take place on the Crolla-Linares bill.

It will be Burton’s first defence of the title after winning it against Miles Shinkwin in February, and his trainer Joe Gallagher is eager for Hosea to prove his mettle.
