Gill, coming off a stunning victory against Michael Conlan in Belfast, eyes a World Title opportunity but must first navigate past Barrett, who is equally hungry for World Title glory following his narrow miss against Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov.

Barrett, absorbing inspiration from Manchester’s boxing legends and the spirit of his Harpurhey upbringing, is determined not to let his supporters down. His resolve is fueled by personal trials and the city’s tough, tight-knit community, driving him to not only win but to inspire others from similar backgrounds.

Gill, on the other hand, brings a compelling mix of speed and power, promising a fight where both contenders will be pushed to their limits. Despite mutual respect, Barrett’s confidence remains unshaken, believing in his superior speed and strength. The event also features an exciting undercard including Ellie Scotney defending her IBF World Title against WBO Champion Segolene Lefebvre, and Rhiannon Dixon vying for the WBO 140lbs crown against Karen Elizabeth Carabajal. Additionally, fans will witness title defenses and promising matchups involving Michael Gomez Jr, Ste Clarke, Jordan Flynn, Jack Turner, Jimmy Sains, William Crolla, and Brandon Scott.
