British featherweight champion Martin Lindsay has been added to promoter Frank Maloney’s world title card at The Rainton Meadows Arena, Houghton-le-Spring on Saturday September 11.
Belfast’s Lindsay, 28, will keep busy when he boxes an eight round non-title contest against a selected opponent on the undercard of a show being televised live by Sky Sports.
Promoter Frank Maloney is hopeful Lindsay (16-0) could be a world title challenger in the next 12 months.
He added: “Martin is closing in on a European title shot and I am certain that sometime next year he will be challenging for a world title in his hometown.
“Martin brings excitement to the ring and the more exposure he gets the more popular he will become.”
In the chief supporting contest London Matthew Marsh (13-2) will meet undefeated Scot Kris Hughes (12-0) for the vacant Commonwealth super-bantamweight crown.
Marsh controversially lost on an 11th round cuts stoppage to Booth in February and will have one eye on the winner of the world title clash.
