Scarborough's George Rhodes Jnr takes on Steven Backhouse in Scunthorpe on Saturday July 16

The change of date and opponent follows the cancellation of the show at the Barnsley Metrodome on Friday July 8, where Rhodes Jnr was supposed to take on Bulgarian veteran Danny Donchev.

Backhouse has only fought twice as a professional, losing both times, but had more success as an amateur as he lifted the elite belt in his region.

Tickets are available by contacting Rhodes Jnr on 07896568611.
