And the fight will again be shown live on TV, with Dave covering the Hayemaker Ringstar promotion which sees heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce headlining.

Experienced Ayala is a 10-fight pro, with eight wins on her record, five inside the distance.

“I enjoyed my last win, but this is a step up in class and one I’m really looking forward to,” Marshall said.

“Mexican boxers are always tough opponents and I’m going to have to box well to beat her.”
