We've got plenty of Manchester interest on the undercard. There's Anthony Crolla-trained Rhiannon Dixon, an unbeaten fighter from Warrington, looking to win her first world title when she takes on Argentina’s Karen Elizabeth Carabajal for the vacant WBO super-lightweight crown. Crolla's younger brother William is also on the card, the 25-year-old pencilled in for his fifth professional contest. And Michael Gomez Jnr, son of the 'Manchester Mexican' of the same name, defends his English super-featherweight title against Kane Baker.

From Harpurhey, ‘Brown Flash’ is part of a fighting family. The 30-year-old is the nephew of his trainer Pat Barrett - a former British and European champion and world title challenger. World-ranked light-heavyweight Lyndon Arthur is his cousin. Barrett has had 32 fights, winning 30, and came up short in his one world title challenge so far when he lost to Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov for the IBF title in Abu Dhabi. Headlining at the Manchester Arena represents the end of a remarkable road for Barrett who started out fighting at places like the Oldham Leisure Centre and Middleton Arena. 

Who is Jordan Gill? 

Peterborough’s Gill, a former European and Commonwealth champion at featherweight, stunned Irish hero Michael Conlan with a seventh-round stoppage win on away territory in Belfast last month and immediately called for a world title shot in his post-fight interview. Barrett is the man standing in his way. ‘The Thrill’ has won 28 of his 31 fights as a professional.
