Rose fights Fowler on Friday Dave Thompson/Matchroom

A 10-ROUND middleweight contest headlines at the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool this Friday (August 2), as local Anthony Fowler, 9-1 (8), opposes Blackpool’s Brian Rose, 31-5-1 (8), live on Sky Sports Action (UK) and DAZN (US).

The fight was originally due to take place on the undercard of Lawrence Okolie’s British and Commonwealth cruiserweight title defence against Jack Massey in Manchester on July 6.

The Fowler-Rose clash was subsequently postponed three weeks and shifted 35 miles west to Merseyside.
