Buatsi vs Burton Possible for December

Buatsi vs Burton could happen in December says Eddie Hearn.

Two promising light heavyweight prospects could be on a collision course for later this year. Undefeated Joshua Buatsi could get an opportunity to fight for a British title against the once beaten Hosea Burton.

That plan, however, is contingent on current British and Commonwealth champion Callum Johnson vacating his titles. Johnson recently suffered his first career defeat losing to IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev by fourth round knockout.

Regardless, this is a fight that has been talked about for sometime now. Both men have expressed their interest in fighting each other. Also, both fought on the same October 14 card; securing first round knockout victories and potentially setting the stage for a UK light heavyweight showdown.
