Blackpool boxer Brian Rose will be in action at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield in October.

Light-middleweight Rose, who won the Lonsdale Belt outright, will fight on the undercard of the clash between Kell Brook and Vyacheslav Senchenko on October 26.

There is also a spot on the high-profile programme for Lytham’s Scott Cardle, the Central Area lightweight title.

Both Cardle and Rose are eagerly waiting to hear the idenity of their opponents.

Rose has designs on mixing it at world level after conquering all the goals at domestic level in his weight category.

Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua MBE will box for the second time as a professional on the card after his debut at the O2 on October 5, and he is joined on the card by Team GB captain Thomas Stalker.

Liverpool’s Callum Smith will be aiming to add to his impressive run of stoppage wins and there’s a return to action for Kal Yafai, the exciting, unbeaten bantamweight who boxes for the first time since injuring his bicep in his last outing in March.

Brook’s showdown with Senchenko tops the bumper card in his home town.

- Kirkham’s unbeaten welterweight Adam Little will not be boxing until the autumn while he sorts out a troublesome right hand.

He has not boxed since last October, when he beat Dee Mitchell on points at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Little, who has won all his eight contests to date, is due to have an operation on Thursday.

It is not expected to affect his long-term career but it is frustrating for Little, who is keen to maintain his progress up the boxing ladder under the tutelage of Ricky Hatton.
