Big Time Boxing returns to Liverpool's Echo Arena on Saturday 16th July when Glasgow's Ricky Burns tops the bill in defence of his WBO World Super-Featherweight Championship and Commonwealth Light-Heavyweight Champion Tony Bellew aims to add the vacant British title with a mouth-watering rematch with Derby's Ovill McKenzie.

For Scotsman Burns it will be the third Defence of the title he ripped away from World number one Martinez in such spectacular fashion in September and it will be his first time fighting outside of Scotland as a World champion.

Promoter Frank Warren said today: "Burns is one of only four World Champions that Britain can boast of at the moment and the only one you can watch on these shores and he is every bit as exciting as Haye, Froch and Khan, all who are having their next fights abroad. Bellew and McKenzie served up a drama filled classic back in December with both men trading punches non-stop and both visiting the canvas before Bellew emerged the victor. The fights could have gone either way so a rematch with the British title at stake was a natural to bring back to the superb Echo Arena."

An opponent for Burns will be announced next week but the undercard at the Echo Arena is packed with Merseyside talent including an English title defence by Derry Mathews and Prizefighter winner Ricky Fielding in his first contest under his new promotional deal with Warren.

Also on the bill is emerging Light-Middleweight Joe Selkirk, unbeaten in six and the popular Paul Butler of Ellesmere Port. Joe McNally hopes to continue his unbeaten run and former Amateur star Ronnie Heffron from Oldham, considered one of Britain's best young prospects and Lincoln's Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Calum Johnson complete the card.

Ticket information will be released shortly. Tags: Ricky Burns , Tony Bellew
