Ian Lewison 10-2-1 (6 KOs) will face Gary Cornish 18-0 (10 KOs) in an eliminator for the vacant British heavyweight title on September 6 at the Lagoon Leisure Centre, Paisley.

Cornish had been due to face former Commonwealth champion Sam Sexton until a back injury forced him to withdraw from the contest.

Current Southern Area champion, Lewison has been in action twice in the past two months picking up a second round stoppage victory and a points decision over Kreso Bogdanovic and Hrvoje Kisicek, respectively. As a result, he believes that he is fit and ready to take the fight at less than a months notice.

Speaking to of how the fight came about, Lewison said: He was supposed to fight Sexton and for whatever reason Sexton pulled out so they offered it to me and I said Yeah.

Home advantage will be with the 6ft 7in Scot yet Lewsion isnt concerned and can only foresee one outcome.

Im confident because I think hes useless. Straight up thats all it is I think hes pants. Ive said it all along, the man is useless. The only thing he has going for him is that hes fit.

I could fight him in his front room in his house and it would make no difference the result is still going to be the same, hes still going to get beaten. Ill flatten the man anywhere.
