Gill was due to take on champion Karim Guerfi in Liverpool in December, but the Frenchman pulled out because of illness.

Gill, from Chatteris, said: “This is the chance I have been waiting for. A win here will add to my Commonwealth title and will be a push towards my ultimate goal of a world title fight. With a win it will improve my world ranking and put me in an excellent position with all the major governing bodies.”

Gill, who is ranked in the top 10 by the WBA, will fight Guerfi on the undercard of the big world cruiserweight title gight between Lawrence Okolie and Michael Cieslak.
