Warren, who is celebrating three decades as a promoter, will shortly announce details of the event that will feature the big names of British boxing - similar to his recent successful 'Magnificent Seven' multi-title show in Birmingham..
Liverpool's Paul Smith, who was due to defend his British Super-Middleweight title against Paul David, will still feature on the re-scheduled show.
Warren said, "I'm delighted to be celebrating my 30th anniversary knockout promotion in Liverpool for what will be a fantastic night of boxing. My recent Magnificent Seven show in Birmingham was a fantastic occasion and this show will just as big if not bigger. I will be putting on some big fights that the fans and media will really enjoy."
Members of the public who have purchased tickets for the Liverpool Echo Arena show can get a full refund by going to their original point of purchase.
Instead, on October 23rd, Warren will promote a show at London's York Hall headlined one of the best young talents in the sport, Liam Walsh, challenging for the Vacant Commonwealth Super-Featherweight title.
Unbeaten in nine fights with seven stoppages, hotly-tipped Walsh will take on tough Ghanian Maxwell Awuku in his first title challenge.
Walsh was in action only a couple of weeks ago when he beat Sebastien Cornu over six-rounds in London.
The Cromer puncher's undefeated brothers, Michael and Ryan, will also feature.
Walsh said, "This is a great opportunity for me to really make a statement by winning the title against a good tough fighter. I've been talked about by the media as a prospect to watch so now it's my opportunity to show what I can do. My brothers are on the card as well and we will pack the York Hall out for a big night of boxing for the fans."
A top quality undercard includes former footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse; West Drayton light-middleweight Steve O'Meara and the highly anticipated professional debuts of welterweights Bradley Skeete and Ahmet Patterson, plus lightweight Billy Morgan.
Tickets are available now from the Frank Warren Promotions Box Office on 01992 550 888.
