Khan vs. Lo Greco: Bilal Rehman To Remain On Card

By Elliot Foster

Bilal Rehman will still fight this weekend.

The super-lightweight, 25, from Rochdale, had been set to face Ryan Mulcahy in a challenge for the Central Area title.

The pair were set to clash on Saturday, at the ECHO Arena, as part of the undercard to Amir Khan’s return.

Khan, topping the bill in a 12-round catchweight contest against Phil Lo Greco, is coming back from a two-year hiatus and a spell in the I’m A Celebrity Jungle.

And Mulcahy was set for his first showcase against Rehman, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

But disaster struck for ‘The Monk’ last week as he was led out of the fight with a knee injury.

Despite his withdrawal, however, Rehman will still fight on the card.

‘Billy The Kid’ (10-0, 3 KOs) will be looking to add to his unblemished ledger when he comes up against Edvinas Puplauskas.

Puplauskas is a former Mulcahy opponent with a 5-17 (4 KOs) record. He was last in action in March and will be hoping to extend Rehman to the distance in order to get out again as soon as possible.

The return of former world champion Khan, against Canada’s former WBC International champion Lo Greco, is flanked by a host of stellar names as Sean Dodd defends his Commonwealth lightweight title against Tommy Coyle.

Former Team GB trio Qais Ashfaq, Scott Fitzgerald, Anthony Fowler will see action alongside Natasha Jonas as the former 2012 Olympian vies for her first title in the paid code when she takes on Taoussy L’Hadji for the vacant WBA International female super-featherweight title.

Sam Eggington returns from defeat and makes his debut up at super-welterweight, Tom Farrell continues his climb back into title contention, while Craig Glover features alongside Osman Aslam and Conor Benn fights in the city for the first time.
