Joshua Buatsi has been asked to fight Liam Conroy for the British light-heavyweight belt after Callum Johnson vacated the title.

The British Boxing Board of Control originally named Buatsi as the next challenger for Johnson in November, but the champion has relinquished the belt, with talks ongoing for a fight against Sean Monaghan in America.

Buatsi stopped Renold Quinlan inside two minutes at The O2 Arena last month, bringing up his third successive stoppage victory in the opening round.

The Olympic bronze medalist holds a nine-fight unbeaten record ahead of a potential clash with Conroy, who stopped Miles Shinkwin to defend his English belt in his last bout in March.

Discussing Johnson's next fight, trainer Joe Gallagher told Reporters earlier this month: "If there's a meaningful fight over there for Callum Johnson to get a ranking or a final eliminator for a world-title shot, of course we'll handle that, and we'll give up the British title.

"But if there's nothing else on the horizon, then we're not going to be giving up the British title, we'll fight Joshua Buatsi instead."

Liam Conroy has a record of  (W:16  D:1  L:3) registering 8 TKO in his name.
Buatsi since making his debut in 2017 has recorded an impressive (W:9 D:0 L:0)
