Matchroom Sports’ Eddie Hearn was at the Cardiff City Hall today to announce the line-up to ‘Reloaded’, headlined by Lee Selby v Rendall Munroe for the vacant European featherweight championship.

Selby will also be defending his British title and has the opportunity to boost his trophy cabinet that includes the Welsh, Celtic and WBC International titles.

In support will be an all-Welsh derby between former world champion Gavin Rees and former British champion Gary Buckland and with both coming off losses in their last bouts, it’s a crossroads clash that could be fight of the night.

BoxingWales readers voted Jason Cook v Tony Pace as the fight they want to see on the undercard and it’s been made. The pair will meet in a ten round contest for the Welsh light-welterweight title in what will be Cook’s final fight of his decorated career that has included IBO and European title wins.

London super-heavyweight 2012 Olympic champion Anthony Joshua’s fight with Aberdare’s Dorian Darch has been rescheduled for this show and gives Darch the home advantage as he faces his best opponent yet.

Carmarthen’s Dale Evans was disappointed when his bout with British title challenger Eric Ocheing was called off at the last minute on Saturday but that’s also been rescheduled for ‘Reloaded’.

Also on the bill will be Prizefighter champion Chris Jenkins, former European champion Kerry Hope, Welsh super-middleweight champion Tobias Webb , Team GB’s Olympic captain Tom Stalker and Tamuka Mucha.
