Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse will defend his British light-welterweight title against Hull’s Tommy Coyle next month.
The bout will take place at Leeds Arena on Leeds on Saturday, July 30, when local hero Josh Warrington will headline.
It’s a quick turnaround for 26-year-old Nurse, who shone in stopping seasoned Scot Willie Limond in Glasgow last month.
That was a slick first defence of a belt won at the expense of Welshman Chris Jenkins in Manchester last November.
Nurse now has 33 wins and a draw from 36 professional bouts, while Coyle, also 26, has 22 wins and three defeats.
The East Yorkshire fighter has stepped up from lightweight and Nurse’s trainer Chris Aston said: “We know he has a punch.
“But Tyrone has experience and plenty of skill and we aim to make that count.”
Aston added: “We never really stopped after the Limond fight, so the turnaround time is no problem at all.”
Chorley’s Jack Catterall is in line to fight the winner of Nurse vs Coyle.
It’s hoped Nurse’s stablemate Josh Wale will also make the Leeds bill.
