Stephen Foster Jr will tackle Jose Antonio Elizabeth before attempting to win the British Super-featherweight title.
Foster Jr, 32, meets the Nicaraguan over six rounds on the bill topped by Anthony Crolla’s British lightweight title defence against Derry Mathews, at Oldham Sports Centre on Saturday April 21.
Provided Salford’s former European champion wins, Hatton Promotions hope to match him against domestic king Gary Buckland this Summer.
Hatton Promotions CEO Ricky Hatton said: “A fight between Buckland and Foster Jr is a potential fight of the year candidate. A lot of people wrote Steve off after he lost the European title to Ermano Fegatilli, but has dusted himself down and got on with his career.
"Whoever wins the British title fight would have a great chance of facing Fegatilli who has found it hard getting work since he beat Steve.”
