Smith, Dodson Battle For Vacant British Crown on June 29

Paul Smith and Tony Dodson meet for the vacant British super middleweight title at the Bolton Arena on June 29, live on Sky Sports.

The Merseyside pair first clashed for the belt in March 2010 when Smith claimed the title with a unanimous decision. The Liverpool men now meet three years later for the belt on a stacked show in Lancashire, with defeat not an option for either fighter.

“I'm delighted to add this fight to our show at Bolton Arena on June 29,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “It's a classic old school trade fight with plenty of local pride on the line. Both fighters career is on the line and I'm expecting a great scrap.”

Smith and Dodson’s British title fight is part of a huge bill in Bolton, topped by the mouth-watering lightweight tussle between Welshman Gavin Rees and Manchester’s Anthony Crolla. Rees’ fellow countryman Lee Selby will be in action as he closes in on major honours in the featherweight division.

Brian Rose will box for the first time since beating Joachim Alcine for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental light middleweight title in April and some of Matchroom Boxing’s brightest talent will also be in action, including Team GB’s Olympic boxing captain Thomas Stalker.

Tickets are on sale now priced £40, £70 ringside and £120 VIP. Tickets are available at www.matchroomboxing.com or by calling 01277 359900.
