Former IBF World Bantamweight champion McDonnell and former British Featherweight and super featherweight champion Smith will both fight in eight round bouts. There’s also a late spot on the bill for St. Helens’ Middleweight star Martin Murray, who is back in action after his controversial loss to Sergio Martinez in his second World title challenge in April.
