"We have had this fight made as a final eliminator for the Commonwealth title," said promoter Mick Hennessy. "Dave has already fought and won an eliminator for the Commonwealth title."
"There will be no excuses for Amir now, he will have to put up or shut up," said Thaxton, the British champion.
Middleweight Darren Barker, the 2002 Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist, returns to action after a break and is part of quality undercard that also features the professional debut of Daniel Herdman, of Stevenage, at light-middleweight.
