England's Anthony Joshua, the 2012 super heavyweight Olympic gold medalist, had to pull out of last Saturday's card in London because of a sore shoulder. But now that Joshua's shoulder is feeling better, the fight has been rescheduled for Feb. 1 in Cardiff, Wales, Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn announced this week.
Joshua (3-0, 3 KOs) will take on the same opponent he had been scheduled to face on Dec. 14, Dorian Darch (7-2, 1 KO), who lasted the six-round distance with Hughie Fury, one of England's other top heavyweight prospects, in September.
Topping the bill at Motorpoint Arena will be Lee Selby (17-1, 6 KOs) of Wales taking on England's Rendall Munroe (27-3-1, 11 KOs) for the vacant European featherweight title. Selby's British title will also be at stake.
Former junior welterweight titlist Gavin Rees (37-3-1, 18 KOs) will face Gary Buckland (27-3, 9 KOs) in a lightweight bout on the undercard. Rees has lost two fights in a row, including getting stopped in the fifth round of a one-sided world title fight by Adrien Broner this past February.
