Darren Sutherlands next outing will be on the undercard of Jason Booths British super-bantamweight defence against Michael Hunter at the Seaham Centre in Sunderland on Friday, October 16.
It is a long overdue return to the ring for the Irish super-middleweight, who took his professional record to 4-0 with a fourth-round TKO of Gennadiy Raselev at the York Hall on June 30.
Sutherland had been scheduled to return to the ring in Sunderland ten days later. However, a minor cut to his right cheek put paid to that plan.
As a result, the Beijing Olympian was added to the undercard of Jamie Moores European light-middleweight title defence against Jimmy Colas, in Altrincham on July 24.
However, that card was cancelled after Moore was forced to withdraw because of a severe bout of the flu, leaving Dazzler twiddling his thumbs.
But Sutherland has now been penciled in for a scheduled six-round contest against on as yet unconfirmed opponent on the eagerly-anticipated Booth-Hunter bill.
Tickets for the show priced 90 and 35 are available from www.frankmaloney.com and 0871 226 1508.
