CRAIG WATSON has landed an immediate British welterweight title rematch against Lee Purdy.

And he will have hometown advantage at Oldham Sports Centre for his return against the Essex man on Saturday July 16.

Purdy caused one of  the biggest domestic boxing upsets so far this year last month when stopping Watson in five rounds at Manchester’s MEN Arena last month.

Hatton Promotions President Ricky Hatton said: “Again Hatton Promotions are proving that when our fighters suffer a setback we give them opportunities to correct what went wrong.

“Craig knows it all went wrong last month and although Purdy is tough and powerful, I am backing my man to become champion again.

“Craig proved he can bounce back when he got revenge over John O’Donnell so I have every reason to be confident.

“There has been a great response from the public in Oldham so the crowd should be lifting the roof off.”

The show is not being televised and tickets are selling fast for Watson’s revenge missing and are available prices £35, £55 and £75 VIP from 01925 755222
