Chris Jenkins and Tyrone Nurse will meet in a rematch for the British light welterweight title at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 7, live on Sky Sports.
Jenkins and Nurse shared a majority draw in their first meeting for the coveted belt in Manchester in July on the undercard of the world title double-header featuring Scott Quigg and Anthony Crolla.
Huddersfield boxer Nurse was declared the 117-112 winner on one of the scorecards following 12 thrilling rounds but the other two ringside judges had it tied at 115-115 and 114-114.
The decision resulted in the title remaining vacant and the pair will lock horns on another huge show in the north west as Callum Smith and Rocky Fielding meet in an all-Liverpool super middleweight showdown for the British belt.
Nurse is the more experienced fighter, boasting a record of 31 wins, two defeats and one draw, but Jenkins, who was odds-on favourite for the first fight, is still undefeated following 16 straight wins and July's draw.
