Hamilton can claim the Lonsdale belt outright with a successful defence against Driffield’s Woodhouse, who is fighting for the coveted strap for the first time.

Olympic Gold medalist Campbell fights on home turf for the third time in his pro career, with the 26 year old moving to 4-0 in his last outing on the undercard of Carl Froch’s world title clash with George Groves last November.

Coyle claimed the vacant IBF International belt in the same venue on November 2 and is eyeing some big clashes in 2014.

His opponent will be named this week, along with the Campbell’s latest challenge, while Doncaster’s Gavin McDonnell will also fight for his first title at super bantamweight. Further names are expected to be added to the bill soon.
