John Docherty will be back in the ring next month.

The Scottish southpaw was last in action in October last year in Newcastle.

Docherty, 22, took on Lewis van Poetsch and won on points to extend his record to 7-0 with five quick.

And the undefeated Montrose man will be looking to build on that solid ledger once more when he returns to action on February 8.

Docherty has been named as an addition to the card which will be topped by the return of Kell Brook, exclusively live on Sky Sports and DAZN, at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield.

The former IBF welterweight world champion was last in action back in December 2018 at the same venue when he took on Michael Zerafa and it will be American Mark DeLuca in the opposite corner when ‘The Special One’ finally comes back.

Kid Galahad will meet Claudio Marrero in a final eliminator for Josh Warrington’s IBF world featherweight title, Anthony Tomlinson is set to meet Stuart Burt in an official eliminator for Chris Jenkins’ British welterweight title and Hopey Price will fight for the third time since turning professional under the tutelage of Dave Coldwell.

Terri Harper puts her IBO female super-featherweight title at stake while challenging Eva Wahlstrom for the WBC female world title and there is a return to action for heavyweight favourite David Allen as he looks to get back on the horse following July’s 10-round retirement defeat at the hands of David Price at the O2 Arena in London.

Further additions to the card will be revealed in due course.
