British light-middleweight champion Brian Rose will step up in class on April 20th (2013) when he takes on former WBA middleweight champion in Canadian Joachim Alcine at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool. 

Rose’s last fight was on December 14th last year when he out pointed Sam Webb to win the Lonsdale belt outright.

On the same bill, former GB amateur, Scott Cardle will face Maxi Hughes for the vacant Central Area lightweight strap with both men looking to claim their first professional strap.

The card could also feature local lads, Jack Arnfield (possibly against Eric Ochieng) and Matty Askin, in title fights.
