CHRIS EUBANK, of Brighton, will challenge Ilford's Nigel Benn for his World Boxing Council's super-middleweight title on 9 October, assuming Benn stages a successful defence against Lou Gent, of Streatham, at London's Olympia on Saturday.

EAMONN LOUGHRAN'S Commonwealth welterweight title defence against Tony Swift has been called off again. The Ballymena fighter should have met Swift in a rescheduled bout at London's Grosvenor House next Tuesday, but he is still troubled by hand and back injuries. Francis Ampofo, the British flyweight champion from Bethnal Green, will now top the bill at Grosvenor House: he contests the vacant Commonwealth title against Zambia's Albert Musankabala.
