The Prestonpans puncher has registered ten consecutive wins since turning pro, nine by knockout, but faces his biggest test to date against his Mexican opponent, 30, who has stacked up 39 wins and just five defeats in his time as a paid fighter.

The Capital’s Jason Easton will also defend his IBO Inter-Continental super lightweight title, although his opponent is still to be named.

The event will again be broadcast exclusively live on Channel 5.
