Birmingham rivals Wayne Elcock and Matthew Macklin will fight for the British middleweight title in March.
Former world title challenger Elcock will defend his crown against fellow Birmingham City supporter Macklin in one of the most keenly-sought domestic fights of the last year.
The pair will square off at the Aston Arena on March 14 in a fight to be televised live on ITV4.
Elcock, who challenged Arthur Abraham for the IBF title in 2007, said: "There hasn't been a fight like this in Birmingham between two top-rated Brummies for as far back as I can remember.
"My phone is off the hook at the moment because there's so much interest in it. It's going to be a cracking atmosphere on the night and a cracking fight.
"I will win the fight and have been looking for this opportunity for years, since we turned pro. Matt has been doing all the talking, but there's no need to hype this one because it is just a massive fight without any hype.
"I rate Matt as a decent fighter and this is what Birmingham and British boxing needs - two top fighters squaring off against each other.
"He said he's going to knock me out but he was saying that sort of thing before he fought Jamie Moore and look what happened then."
While Elcock, 34, bounced back from the Abraham defeat to win the Lonsdale belt, Macklin is looking to take a major step in his rehabilitation from a brutal defeat by British light-middleweight champion Moore in 2006.
