Nathan Gorman will be back in action sooner rather than later.
The 22-year-old Nantwich heavyweight had been set to come back on December 22.
Gorman was ruled out of a fight on the Frank Warren-promoted Leicester card at the Morningside Arena, exclusively live on BT Sport, last weekend after his opponent withdrew from the fight at the 11th-hour.
It was then revealed that the Ricky Hatton-trained man would be back as part of the supporting cast to Josh Warrington’s defence of the IBF featherweight world title against Carl Frampton at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
But he will be back before then on a card in Essex later this month.
Gorman has been added to the same bill as Anthony Yarde’s next fight.
Yarde will defend his WBO Inter-Continental light-heavyweight title against Walter Gabriel Sequeira on October 20.
Gorman will feature on a card that will also feature Joe Mullender, whose last outing came against Lee Churcher for the vacant IBF European middleweight title last December, and the vacant British title will be at stake when welterweight pair Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran square off.
Bradley Skeete, the man who recently relinquished the Lonsdale belt but was stopped inside two rounds when he challenged Kerman Lejarraga for the vacant European welterweight belt back in April, will return on the bill, while there is a super-middleweight contest between rivals Umar Sadiq and Zak Chelli set, Lucien Reid returns and Caoimhin Agyarko will make his professional debut.
