Price vs. Thompson: Hamilton Lands Co-Feature Spot

Darren Hamilton will defend his British light-welterweight title against Adil Anwar at Liverpool's Echo Arena on July 6.

Hamilton will make his second defence of the belt after a dominant victory over Steve Williams at the same venue in February.

The British Boxing Board of Control put the contests out to purse bids, but promoter Frank Maloney reached an agreement with both camps.

"It is great to be working Darren and his manager Spencer Fearon again," said Maloney, who promotes Leeds-based Anwar.

"I am some sort of lucky charm as I promoted his career best wins against Ashley Theophane and Williams.

"I think Adil will give him the toughest night of his career so far, but I know Spencer expects his man to rise again.

"Adil is a tremendous ticket seller and the Asian community in the north of England really get behind him and it is no surprise - he is for real in the ring."

Hamilton provided chief support to David Price vs Tony Thompson in February and will do so again for the re-match.

Anwar lost his second fight as a professional but has won the other 19 and lifted the Prizefighter trophy just over a year ago.
