Derry Matthews facing Tony Luis in Liverpool

With Ismael Barroso unable to obtain a Visa in order to travel to Liverpool, England for his fight against Derry Matthews, lightweight Tony Luis (19-2) is now stepping in to take the fight.

“It’s obviously not ideal preparing for three different opponents in one camp, but regardless I will still be capturing a version of the World Title this weekend and in my home city and making my life dream come true, I’ve prepared for three different styles so anything he brings shouldn’t be too much of a surprise,” said Matthews.

“Luis is a decent operator and was already in camp but I thank him on taking up this opportunity and keeping my dream alive.”

Luis was already scheduled to compete in a separate fight in Minnesota, but received the call from Frank Warren’s side to offer him the fight.

The two will now meet for an interim belt at the Echo Arena this Saturday night.
