Lowestoft boxer Craig Poxton will take on Leon Woodstock for the WBC International Silver belt at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Saturday, October 21.
The 28-year-old will take on the Leicester-based fighter on the undercard of Josh Warrington's Final Eliminator fight for the IBF Featherweight world title against Dennis Ceylan.
Woodstock is undefeated in nine fights so far, winning five by way of KO.
However, Poxton won't be daunted by the 24-year-old, who won the Midlands Area Super Featherweight title thanks to victory over Paul Holt on April.
Poxton (13 wins, four defeats) is of course the Southern Area Super Featherweight title holder thanks to his superb performance to defeat Boy Jones back in February.
