Welterweight Frankie Gavin will face Bradley Skeete for the British and Commonwealth titles at the ExCel Arena in London on November 29.

Promoter Frank Warren has announced that Frankie Gavin and Bradley Skeete will compete for the British and Commonwealth welterweight titles at London's ExCel Arena on November 29.

Gavin, who holds the British strap, will be looking to make a positive statement near the top of the domestic division after being edged out by Leonard Bundu for the European belt in his last fight.

Skeete, who extended his unbeaten record to 18 matches with a second-round stoppage of Leandro Mendes Pinto last weekend, will be hoping to make further inroads up the WBA rankings with what would be a career-best win against Gavin.

The contest will take place on the undercard of the heavyweight world title eliminator between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury.
