Cool Hand Luke Keeler secures Matchroom Sky date

After the setback of having his fight on August 1st postponed, there has been some good news for Luke Keeler who will fight in Leeds on September 5th at the 13,000 capacity First Direct Arena.

Cool Hand Luke will fight on the undercard of the Matchroom show which is headlined by Leeds featherweight Josh Warrington, who defends his WBC International and Commonwealth titles against Joel Brunker.

Also on the card, Gavin McDonnell defends his EBU title against former Frampton foe Jeremy Parodi.

Dublin middleweight Keeler will be looking for an impressive return to the ring in front of the Sky Sports cameras after a period of inactivity due to a nasty hand injury suffered in Prizefighter last February.
