Felix Cash has had the date for his second pro outing confirmed.
The Wokingham middleweight signed a promotional contract with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport before making successful start to the paid code last month, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Cash (1-0) knocked down Yailton Neves en-route to a four-round decision victory, as part of the undercard to Anthony Joshua’s seven-round stoppage of Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London.
And after getting his feet under the table as a paid puncher, he will now return on July 30 at the First Direct Arena.
The 23-year-old’s next fight will take place in Yorkshire on a bill topped by Josh Warrington’s clash against former world title challenger Patrick Hyland in a defence of the WBC International featherweight title.
Cash will be joined on the ‘Leeds Rumble’ card, which will be screened on regular Sky Sports, by British bantamweight champion Ryan Burnett, who will defend his WBC International crown, Tommy Martin who returns from defeat and the vacant WBC Silver lightweight title showdown between Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell and former IBF super-featherweight world champion Argenis Mendez.
Elsewhere, Tyrone Nurse and Tommy Coyle meet in a mouthwatering super-lightweight clash for the former’s prestigious British title, Frankie Gavin and Sam Eggington feature in separate contests ahead of a local derby in Birmingham in October and Gamal Yafai defends his Commonwealth bantamweight title against former British super-bantamweight title challenger Josh Wale.
And there is action for Darren Tetley, Connor Seymour and Brixton heavyweight Dillian Whyte, while Jake Ball and Reece Mould will look to keep up their undefeated runs alongside Commonwealth Games gold medallist Scott Fitzgerald.
