Brook will stay busy with a 12-round welterweight contest against dangerous Russian Vyashaslev Senchenko at the Motorpoint Arena in his home city.

In addition to the feature bout, there will be a second appearance in three weeks for new heavyweight signing Anthony Joshua, who is scheduled to make his debut at the O2 Arena on October 5.

Former Team GB team-mates Thomas Stalker and Scott Cardle will also be back in action, as will another top amateur Kal Yafai.

The super-flyweight has been out of action since early this year when he suffered a torn bicep that subsequently required surgery.

Blackpool light-middleweight Brian Rose will take another step towards a potential world title shot while Liverpool's exciting super-middleweight Callum Smith will also feature.
