Barnet banger Barker has built up an impressive professional record since winning a Gold Medal at the Commonwealth Games in 2002.
Barker returned after a spell out of the ring with an impressive third round stoppage of Greg Barton earlier this month and faces another unbeaten opponent in Crampton next month.
“This is a great chance for Darren to win his first major title as a professional after looking so good in his last fight,” said promoter Mick Hennessy. “He is an incredible talent and this will be a continuation of things for him, fighting for the Commonwealth Title after he won the Commonwealth Gold Medal for England.”
Crampton has won all 20 of his fights, while Barker has stopped ten of 15 opponents.
Daws-Wright is a rematch of their thrilling British Title clash last year.
