She tops a 19-fight bill which features 18 Assassins and four international bouts.

Chief instructor and promoter Mark Barlow said: “We were very lucky that Cindy was training for a fight in Switzerland and her opponent also pulled out.

“Cindy is a very tough fighter and will be a great match for the main event.”

Michael Robinson has also been re-matched with a stronger opponent after his original opponent withdrew,

Tyree Stevens co-headlines the show against Newcastle’s Christian Jopling, while George Griffiths faces tall Cypriot Christophe Roba.

The action starts at 6pm with doors opening at 5pm.

Tickets are still available from Nicko’s Fish Bar and on the door.
