Following their crowd-pleasing scrap last month, Matty Mainwaring and Irish Tommy Carter will be in action again on September 2nd.

The middleweight duo appear on another Kieran Farrell-promoted show at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester – although this time they wont be trading leather with each other.

Mainwaring [2(0)-0] will fight respected journeyman Lee Griffiths [4(0)-64(3)-1], while Carter [0-1(0)] takes on Ben Heap [0-2(1)]

21 year old Carter was given huge credit for taking on Matthew Hatton-trained prospect Mainwaring last month in his debut. The youngster of Drogheda descent put in an admirable performance, eventually losing 37:40 to the highly-rated former Irish underage international.
