Fowler vs. Rose was originally set to take place on July 6 in Manchester, but after Jack Massey, who was going to face Lawrence Okolie on the card, suffered an arm injury, the entire show was scrapped and Fowler vs. Rose was moved to another date. Okolie is fighting on July 20 on the undercard of the Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas heavyweight bout. Okolie's opponent has yet to be officially announced.
Also announced for the card is a WBA Continental junior welterweight title bout between Lewis Ritson and Joe Hughes. Ritson bounced back from an October 2018 split decision loss to Francesco Patera by beating German Argentino Benitez back in March. Hughes, a former English champion and European title challenger, is coming off a loss to Robbie Davies Jr. earlier this year.
Other fights were announced for the event include Jack Cullen vs. John Harding Jr., Martin Bakole vs. Ytalo Perea and Sean McGoldrick vs. Thomas Essomba
