Taking to the Matchroom Boxing ring will Masher will go head to head against former Team GB captain Liverpudlian Tom Stalker on Saturday, September 30 at the Echo Arena.

28-year-old Paul Butler from Ellesmere Port will also face bitter rival Stuart Hall in an eliminator for the WBA World Bantamweight title which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Hall will have the chance to get his revenge in Butler's backyard with a route to the WBA belt currently in the hands of Jamie McDonnell who will have his own rematch with Liborio Solis.

Butler said: "I'm very happy to be teaming up with Matchroom Boxing and Sky Sports on the biggest and best platform in boxing.

"I'm craving those big nights and more World titles and I feel now I have the team in place to deliver that.

"I'm excited to be straight in a big fight against Stuart Hall on a rematch of our World title fight in Newcastle.

"The winner will be in place to fight the McDonnell v Solis winner and I plan on beating him in great style this time - I don't expect him to hear the final bell.

"It's a stacked card with some great 50-50 fights and I'm expecting to bring big numbers from my hometown for this must-win fight."
