Khaleel’s last fight was in Liverpool against Tom Farrel, and his last fight in Bolton was in 2021 against Naeem Ali, who Khaleel retired early on.

He said: “It was good back then, it was amazing – it’s always amazing to fight in Bolton.

“Eddie Hearn knows I wanted to come back to Bolton, he knows himself.

“It’s good to come back, and potentially headline myself as it opens up a lot of doors.”

The rising boxing star is popular in Bolton, selling hundreds of tickets whenever he fights.

Khaleel has flown to the USA numerous times to train with greats like Buddy McGirt.

He said: I have been over in the States, and I have just been training there, had my head down and just focused on my graft.

“The prediction is a win by any means.

“I’d just like to say a big thank you for the support of Bolton coming out to support me and really getting behind me.

“I not where I want to be yet, but I am certainly on the way and I want to be a world champion.”

A spokesman for Wasserman Boxing said: “This will be Khaleel's homecoming - his first fight back in Bolton in nearly three years - and he's wildly popular, selling hundreds of tickets for his contest.

“Coupled with the huge national TV audience he will box in front of, this is a great platform for Khaleel.

“Inspired by Amir Khan and with his family originating from Lahore, Khaleel is part of a new wave of British-Asian pro boxers, following in the footsteps of Amir's exploits.

“Undefeated, Khaleel knows a win this week will open the doors to domestic title shots later this year, so it's a pivotal fight for him.”
