Eddie Hearn has announced that the planned undercard for David Haye's postponed comeback fight will now be go ahead at Bolton Arena instead.

The main event on June 29 will see Gavin Rees return to action following his failed attempt to take the WBC lightweight title from American Adrien Broner earlier this year.

The Welshman goes up against Mancunian Anthony Crolla, who drew with Derry Mathews last time out when the Commonwealth belt was on the line.

The pair had initially been due to meet as the chief support for Haye's clash against German heavyweight Manuel Charr on the same date at Manchester Arena.

Also on the Bolton bill will be Rees' compatriot Lee Selby, with promoter Hearn promising "a big step up" for the highly-rated British and Commonwealth featherweight champion.

Rocky Fielding will defend his English title against Leicester's Martin Concepcion and Brian Rose will box for the first time since beating Joachim Alcine for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental light middleweight title in April.

Former Great Britain Olympic boxing captain Thomas Stalker should also feature on Matchroom's bumper card that will be screened live on Sky Sports.
