Birmingham City fan Gavin used to cheer Woodhouse from the terraces when he played for the midlands outfit, but now he will be aiming to knock him out at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
The pair meet for the WBO Intercontinental Welterweight title on Frank Warren's big summer promotion headlined by Ricky Burns WBO World Super-Featherweight title defence against Nicky Cook, live on Sky Sports 1HD.
"Woodhouse is standing between me and my world title ambitions," said fired up Frankie.
"I couldn't get the knockout I wanted in my last fight against Young Mutley, so I'll be taking out my frustrations on Woodhouse.
"There's definitely a bit of needle between us.
"He's been after a fight with me for a while, telling everyone that he's going to beat me, so I'm definitely up for this one.
"I can't wait to shut him up once and for all."
Former amateur world champion Gavin is unbeaten as a professional, and is aiming for more titles in the next 18 months.
"I want the British title, definitely, before I move on to world level," said Gavin.
"I'd love the Commonwealth and European belts too.
"The most important thing for me is to keep busy with five or six fights over the next year or so, and then I'm sure the belts will come."
Tickets priced at £50, £80 and £100 are available on the Liverpool Echo Arena Box Office on 0844 8000 400 or www.echoarena.com
