Wragg will face Huntingdon’s Shaun Preece as his original opponent pulled out of the fight with two weeks to go.

Wragg said: “I’m disappointed that Athos, my original opponent, pulled out with no apparent reason.

“It was supposed to be a rematch as when we fought last year and it ended in a draw, so it was scheduled for a rematch.

“However my new opponent Shaun is no mug and he’s a well-known name in the kickboxing world. He will be bringing everything to this fight
