Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions has rounded up a solid lineup of rising U.K. talent for its upcoming show in Cardiff, Wales, helmed by a Commonwealth and BBBofC super welterweight title fight between champion Liam Williams and challenger Gary Corcoran.

Bradley Skeete, Tommy Langford, and others are also set to appear against opponents to be named.

Williams (14-0-1, 9 KO), a Welshman himself, took out Michael Lomax for the Commonwealth title and Kris Carslaw for the BBBofC belt. He defended them both last Saturday against Gustavo Alberto Sanchez, a now 12-13-1 fighter who had lost eight of his previous ten and whose only fight of note was a near-shutout loss to Yamaguchi Falcao.

Sanchez actually lasted longer than both Carslaw and Lomax, oddly enough.

Corcoran (15-0, 6 KO) has been matched a little tougher, picking up wins over Rick Skelton and Danny Butler. It's a good, competitive matchup between young fighters, which is probably more than can be said for whomever they dredge up to fight Skeete and Langford.

The press release also claims that there will be "a huge fight involving a pound-for-pound superstar" on the bill. The only person I could possibly imagine this being is Kell Brook, but rest assured we'll let you guys know once they deign to tell us.
