Jamie Scotter will tackle Czech fighter David Bauza in his first pro bout on Friday night.
Scotter makes his long-awaited pro debut this Friday at Hull City Hall, and 29-year-old Bauza will be his opponent.
Bauza has fought five times as a professional, winning one, drawing two and losing two, fighting in three different countries in the process.
Scotter's trainer Paul Kershaw said: "David Bauza will come to win, which is what we want for Jamie.
"Jamie's looked really good in training and I'm expecting a good performance from him Friday.
"Bauza is a great opponent to start with, so fingers crossed Jamie can get away to a good start."
