Conor Benn will attempt to extend his unbeaten record when he faces Steven Backhouse on a packed undercard for Anthony Joshua-Eric Molina.
The 20-year-old welterweight has made a perfect start to his professional career and will be seeking his sixth straight win on the same bill as Joshua's IBF heavyweight title defence against Molina this Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Benn has been cleared to return after illness prevented him from appearing on last month's Wembley Arena undercard and will be eager to end his busy year with an impressive victory.
He is part of a packed night of action at Manchester Arena, which will see Dillian Whyte defend his British heavyweight title against Dereck Chisora in an eagerly awaited grudge fight.
Kal Yafai can join Britain's list of world champions when he challenges Luis Concepcion for the WBA super-flyweight title.
Luis Ortiz, another heavyweight contender, will take on David Allen and the fit-again Scott Quigg can propel himself back into world title contention with a win over Jose Cayetano.
In two more British title fights, Callum Smith defends his belt against Luke Blackledge, while Hosea Burton puts his Lonsdale title on the line against Frank Buglioni.
