Belfast bantamweight Ryan Burnett is aiming to secure a world title shot in 2016 after clinching the British crown in Manchester last month.
The 23-year-old, who recently moved to Eddie Hearn's Matchroom stable, will fight on the undercard of Carl Frampton's super-bantamweight unification fight against Scott Quigg in Manchester on 27 February.
Burnett clinched the crown by earning a points win over veteran Jason Booth.
