Cardle - title fight
Cardle - title fight

Lytham boxer Scott Cardle is to get his chance to fight for the British lightweight title next month

He will face Craig Evans for the vacant British lightweight crown at the O2 in London on May 30.

It will be an intriguing battle between two talented fighters who are undefeated.

Cardle has been biding his time for a crack at the Lonsdale belt since landing the English title in September with a stunning first round stoppage of Kirk Goodings in Manchester and he will have to see off ambitious Welshman Evans if he wants to join his fellow Joe Gallagher-trained British title winners.
