Gavin Rees
Gavin Rees is set to defend his British lightweight title against John Murray while he awaits a potential WBA world title fight according to Sky Sports.
Rees is ranked second by the governing body and his promoter Eddie Hearn had been chasing a fight with Richard Abril for the vacant belt.
Abril has taken a different route, much to the disappointment of Hearn, who wants to keep the Welshman busy following his victory over Derry Mathews in July.
“The WBA ruling states the number one must fight the number two for a vacant title,” Hearn said.

“We were asked to make the fight with Richard Abril for the vacant WBA title, since then Abril has agreed to fight Sharif Bogere later this year.
“We and our legal advisers believe that fight cannot take place for the WBA title and our advisers are in contact with the WBA to assure them Gavin is very much available to fight for the title.
“Whatever happens Gavin will be in a top fight which will be announced this week. We’ve agreed terms with John Murray – great money for them and no options – and we await the ‘blessing’ of Frank Warren for them to take that fight, which we hope will happen in the next few days.
“If not there’s other big domestic fights out there, Kevin Mitchell is interested in the fight, Anthony Crolla, Gary Sykes, but for us we’re number two in the WBA and we want to move forward for a world title fight.”
Murray is coming off losses to Mitchell and former interim WBA champ Brandon Rios, but ranked only behind world champion Ricky Burns, Rees and Mitchell in a highly competitive division.
