Anwar Oshana next opponent for Steve Collins

Steve Collins will make the seventh defence of his World Boxing Organisation super-middleweight title against America's Anwar Oshana at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall on 5 July. Chicago's Oshana has an unbeaten record of 16 wins with 10 inside the distance.

Luton's Billy Schwer will have to travel to Spain for his overdue European lightweight title challenge against Oscar Garcia Cano. The Spanish promoters have won the bidding and will stage the fight in late July or early August possibly in Marbella, although the venue has yet to be finalised.
