Anthony Crolla will head Hatton Promotions top class bill at Oldham Leisure Centre on Saturday April 21.
British lightweight champion Crolla (23-2) makes the second defence of his title against Derry Mathews (29-6-1) in a mouth-watering North-West clash.
Crolla, 25, became a Lonsdale belt holder when he stopped John Watson 12 months ago, and in his solitary defence outscored Willie Limond.
Hatton said: “Anthony is arguably the most improved fighter in Britain and moving towards world class rapidly.
“He is growing into the weight, maturing and the performance against Limond was one of the most dominant by a British champion last year.
“He won’t have it easy against Derry who always comes to fight and most probably knows this could be his final big chance.”
The show will also feature a British cruiserweight title eliminator between Blackpool’s Matt Askin (13-0) and Birtley’s Jon-Lewis Dickinson (9-2).
