The Huddersfield man set up the contest with a hard-fought victory over Tommy Coyle in Leeds last month.

With the details yet to be finalised however Catterall, the WBO Inter-Continental champion, is staying sharp by taking on Polish journeyman Lukasz Janik at the Village Hotel in Ashton-under-Lyne in an expected eight-round contest.

Manchester’s former super welterweight world title challenger Jimmy Kelly tops the bill of the show promoted by Catterall’s trainer-manager Lee Beard and Preston’s Johnney Roye.
