After dazzling in his opening two professional outings against Brett Fidoe and Vicente Medellin, Khan will feature on a stacked card put together by VIP Boxing Promotions, with no less than 14 bouts taking place.

The younger brother of Amir Khan will aim to follow up his stunning knockout of Medellin last May in Atlantic City against a yet to be named opponent and is excited to get back in action.

The super flyweight said: "I just can't wait to get back in the ring.

"It's seemed like a while since I was last out, so I'm raring to go. Over the past few months I've been training hard with Oliver Harrison and I've done some great work and had excellent sparring. This will only be my third fight as a professional but I feel myself growing and getting stronger.

"There are no shortcuts in this sport so I will be getting in tiptop shape in order to put on a great performance. I would like to thank Steve Woods for putting me on this great show."

Steve Woods of VIP Boxing Promotions said: "We've put together a great show for November 15 in Blackpool which I'm very proud of.

"There's a real mix of fighters amongst the card and everyone who attends or watches will no doubt see some truly excellent match ups. It's great to have Haroon fighting on the card and we expect there will be a large contingent from Bolton making their way across to Blackpool next month.

"This card will have it all from top to bottom and it will be a great night of boxing."

The card will also feature some of the country's top young fighters and will be topped by Jack Arnfield clash with veteran Max Maxwell.
