Stephen Foster Jnr, one of the best young fighters in Britain today, features as chief-support when he challenges Colombian Livingston Ruiz for the Vacant WBU World Featherweight title.
In addition Michael Jenning's, a boxer who last year emerged as a major talent, defends his WBU International Welterweight title.
This show was to be the first of the proposed Sports Network Pro-Am events but will now not feature the England Amateur boxers as announced last month.
Due to the short run-up time to the show, it was felt jointly by promoter Frank Warren, The British Boxing Board of Control and ABA England that logistically it would better to re-schedule for March.
All parties are continuing discussions in a positive manner to make Pro-Am shows a regular feature on Sports Network fight cards and further details will be announced shortly.
Warren said, "This is a super-fight card featuring some great youngsters like Gomez, Foster and Jennings who are all exciting talents in their own right. I hope to announce shortly further details of the first Pro-Am show that is now intended for March."
