Jordan Gill will put his perfect professional record on the line in front of the Channel 5 TV cameras in Leeds on May 10.
The Chatteris boxer, who is undefeated in nine bouts, will compete on the same card as European super-bantamweight champion Kid Galahad.
The 19 year-old has endured a frustrating time since he stopped Michael Stupart to clinch the vacant British Masters bronze light featherweight belt on February 1.
He was forced to pull out of a bout last month because of a hand injury and Saturday’s scheduled contest in Peterborough has also been postponed.
He said: “My hand’s fine so it is disappointing not to be able to perform in front of my home crowd but it is just one of those things.

“I’ve got six weeks to train hard and tune up for the fight. I’m not sure who I will be facing yet but I know they are going to be in the top 10 or 15 featherweights in the country so it will definitely be a step up on who I’ve faced so far.”
Tickets for the show are £30 standard seating. A bus is being put on to take fans up to Leeds. For more information call Jordan on 07415 618602
