Jamie Cox will square off against Lewis Taylor for the WBA Inter-Continental Super-Middleweight Title at Bramall Lane on Saturday, May 27th.
The contest will be Cox’s first under the Matchroom banner and will serve as pre-cursor to a domestic showdown with British Super-Middleweight Champion, Rocky Fielding.
Cox is eager to make his Sky Sports debut and is currently training in Spain alongside his sparring partner, IBF World Welterweight champion, Kell Brook.
“My profile will go through the roof with Matchroom, and it’s really exciting,” said, Cox. “The world of Boxing has all eyes on the UK right now.
“We’ve just put on the biggest show in the world at Wembley Stadium, and that was down to Eddie. The future is very exciting, and I’ve got the platform to be part of something very big.”
Cox and Taylor clash on a huge night of boxing as Brook defends his IBF strap against highly rated American mandatory challenger Errol Spence.
