LEEK professional boxer Andy Keates is scheduled to make a return to the ring next month.
The 22-year-old is poised for action at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday, November 16.
The father-of-one is awaiting confirmation of the name of his opponent.
Keates has suffered just one defeat in eight fights since stepping up to the paid ranks.
It came in a title fight at Sheffield in April, when he lost to Yorkshireman Sam OfMaison in a battle for the vacant International Masters lightweight crown.
