Keeler v Rose Leads European Title Triple-Header on Christmas Card at York Hall

Luke Keeler and Brian Rose, Johnny Coyle and Akeem Ennis Brown, Larry Ekundayo and Louis Green will all contest European titles on a packed MTK Global show at York Hall on December 14.

Keeler will defend the WBO European middleweight title against Rose, Coyle and Brown will compete for the vacant IBF European super-lightweight strap while Ekundayo makes the first defence of his IBF European welterweight belt – all live on BoxNation.

Dublin’s Keeler (15-2-1-KO5) won his title with an assured points victory over Conrad Cummings at Belfast’s SSE Arena back in April and was most recently in action outclassing Dwain Grant at Windsor Park.

In the vastly experienced Rose (29-5-1-KO8), he faces a former world title challenger who held a British title at light-middleweight. ‘The Lion’ makes his hotly-anticipated return on November’s MTK Manchester show on November 9.

Elsewhere on the card, unbeaten duo Coyle and Brown are handed chances to gain a major title and widespread exposure as the 140lb division continues to produce intriguing domestic match-ups.

Coyle (19-0-1-KO2) outpointed the previously-unbeaten Lewis Benson in June but although the Essex fighter is more experienced than Gloucester’s Brown (11-0-KO1), ‘Riiddy’ has already claimed English and WBC World Youth titles during an impressive early career.

One of the home fighters on the night is the popular Nigerian-born Ekundayo (14-1-KO3), who enjoyed a crucial victory over John Thain at the same venue in July to win the title and makes his first defence against the unbeaten Green.
