ROH has set the date for Jonathan Gresham's next Pure Championship defense.

On the latest edition of ROH Week By Week, it was announced that Gresham will defend his Pure Championship against Fred Yehi on the ROH TV episode that premieres the weekend of Saturday, July 3. ROH had announced earlier this month that Yehi would be getting a Pure title shot.

Yehi has won three straight matches in ROH. He won a Pure Rules gauntlet match in March and has since defeated Rocky Romero and The World Famous CB (Cheeseburger) in Pure Rules matches.

Gresham won a tournament last year to become the first ROH Pure Champion since 2006. The title had been unified with the ROH World Championship in 2006 before being brought back last year.

Gresham's most recent Pure title defense was against his The Foundation stablemate Jay Lethal on the 500th episode of ROH TV this April.

The July 3 edition of ROH TV will also feature Jay Briscoe vs. Mark Briscoe in the "Fight on the Farm." The match is being held at The Briscoes' family farm in Sandy Fork, Delaware.
