Birmingham’s Galal Yafai is set to headline in his home city against Tommy Frank at the Utilita Arena on August 19th.
The show will mark the first time Yafai (4-0, 3KOs) has featured in a main event since turning professional in February last year.
Backed by a wealth of amateur experience which culminated in securing gold in Tokyo two years ago, Yafai flew out the blocks on his debut which was set to go ten rounds.
The 30 year old halted Carlos Bautista within five however and has amassed two more stoppages in his next three fights.
The only exception was a hard-fought ten-round split-decision over Gohan Rodriguez Garcia in November.
Frank (15-3-1, 3KOs) meanwhile suffered a tenth-round stoppage against Jay Harris to surrender his British flyweight title two months ago.
Newcastle welterweight Cyrus Pattinson (6-0-0, 4KOs) is set to face-off against Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker (11-2-1, 3KOs) over ten rounds, nine months on from Pattinson’s impressive stoppage of former British champion Chris Jenkins.
Walker meanwhile looks to atone for his points defeat to Kade Gardner in March.
Oxford’s Jordan Flynn (9-0-0, 1KO) also hopes to repeat his narrow points victory over local man Kane Baker (18-9-1, 1KO) in April.
The fight is set to go ten-rounds at super-featherweight compared to the eight rounds both men shared three months ago.
Warley heavyweight Solomon Dacres (6-0-0, 2KOs) also features with the opponent still to be confirmed.
