His last outing saw him comfortably outpoint durable veteran Elvis Dube at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester in November.

MTK’s show is in part put together by Preston trainer, manager and promoter Johnney Roye.

Barrow’s Liam Conroy and Mike McGoldrick, who train at Roye’s MTK Manchester gym which moved to Lostock Hall from Oyston Mill at the end of last year, are also in action on the packed March 15 bill.

It could be a big year for Conroy who has been lined up by the British Boxing Board of Control to take on Rio Olympics bronze medallist and rising star Joshua Buatsi for the British light-heavyweight title.

“The company enjoyed putting on some excellent fights in Manchester last year and now we’re back looking to provide the fans with what they want once again.”

The headline fight is set to be announced soon.
