Joshua Buatsi and Liam Conroy to clash for British cruiserweight title

Following Callum Johnson vacating the British cruiserweight championship, the BBBofC decided to put the contest to purse bids to be submitted by mid-February by the respective boxers' promoters with the contest to take place by the end of May 2019.

Callum 'The One', 31 from Boston, has just lost in a world title bid against unbeaten IBF light-heavyweight titleholder Artur Beterbiev in Chicago last October, shortly before Buatsi landed a shot at Johnson's Lonsdale belt last November, but now the belt has been vacated, the Croydon-based Ghanaian is set to meet 26-year-old Cumbrian Liam Conroy (16-3-1), who is a former English champion unbeaten in his last 10 fights.
