Despite earlier reports that Dylan Charrat would join countryman Tony Yoka in Paris on September 10th, Matchroom has announced that Charrat’s European title fight against Kerman Lejarraga will headline a September 11th Barcelona card on DAZN.

The vacant super welterweight belt will be one of three Euro titles on the line. Spain’s Mary Romero (6-2, 1 KO) will defend her super bantamweight belt against Amy Timlin (4-0-1, 0 KO) and super lightweight champ Sandor Martin (38-2, 13 KO) will look for his third successful defense at TBA’s expense.
Veteran Kiko Martinez (41-10-2, 29 KO) and former UK amateur standout Cyrus Pattinson (1-0, 1 KO) will be in action as well.
As far as the main event, both Lejarraga (32-2, 25 KO) and Charrat (20-0-1, 6 KO) have a lot to prove. Two destructive losses to David Avanesyan and a questionable comeback stoppage win of Joe Fisk have notably dimmed the Spaniard’s star, while Charrat is still looking for his first major victory.
