Queensberry Boxing add Bourke vs Lane at York Hall

Queensberry boxing have confirmed their third UK card of 2024, featuring Bourke vs Lane in the main event. The card is set to take place from York Hall and air on TNT Sports as a Friday Fight Night show.

Chris Bourke (13-1) vs Ashley Lane (17-10-2) tops the card at York Hall for the vacant British Bantamweight championship. The card takes place on Friday 22 March 2024.
