Warrington makes the second defence of his title after his impressive win over Rendall Munroe in Manchester earlier this month.
And the 23-year-old faces another stern test for the belt in the shape of Belfast's Lindsay, the former British champion who is back for a second crack at the title after tackling Welshman Lee Selby in February 2013.
"This is a real pick 'em fight between two top featherweights," said promoter Eddie Hearn.
"Both are all-action fighters and the Leeds fight fans can expect a cracking domestic dust up."
The Warrington-Lindsay bill also features Stephen Smith and Fernando David Saucedo, who clash for the Argentinian's WBC silver featherweight title in a crunch eliminator bout.
Gavin McDonnell defends the British super bantamweight title against Josh Wale and there's a return to action for Hull's Tommy Coyle after his epic win over Daniel Brizuela.
