Paul Butler has signed a promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing and will face bitter rival Stuart Hall in a world title eliminator at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
Butler took the IBF bantamweight crown from Hall via split decision in May 2014 in Newcastle and now Hall gets the chance to gain revenge in the Ellesmere Port man's backyard.
The winner will be in line to challenge for the WBA world title, currently in the hands of Jamie McDonnell who is set for his own rematch with Liborio Solis.
"I'm very happy to be teaming up with Matchroom Boxing and to be on Sky Sports - the biggest and best platform in boxing," said Butler. "I'm craving those big nights and more world titles and I feel now I have the team in place to deliver that.
"I'm excited to be straight in a big fight against Stuart Hall in a rematch of our world title battle. The winner will be in place to fight the McDonnell v Solis winner and I plan on beating him in great style this time - I don't expect him to hear the final bell.
"It's a stacked card with some great 50-50 fights and I'm expecting to bring big numbers from my hometown for this must-win fight."
A stacked bill in support of the main event sees Liverpool's Rocky Fielding defend his British super-middleweight title for the first time against Scotsman David Brophy, who also puts his Commonwealth strap on the line.
Hackney man Ohara Davies looks to get back to winning ways as he challenges Tom Farrell for the unbeaten local favourite's WBA International super-lightweight belt.
Birkenhead's Sean 'Masher' Dodd defends his Commonwealth and WBC International lightweight titles against Liverpudlian Tom Stalker, while Olympians Anthony Fowler and Natasha Jonas fight on home turf for the first time.
