Lancaster’s rising mixed martial arts fighter is set to return to the cage next month.

Featherweight Shay Walsh takes on James Saville as part of the BAMMA show at Liverpool’s Olympia on August 2.

The 26-year-old has been set for a fight with Marley Swindells in Swansea on July 5 but the home favourite was forced to pull out due to an ear infection.

Walsh, whose professional record reads 10-3-0, suffered a badly broken jaw against Andrew Fisher in Liverpool in June last year but has since secured a career-changing scholarship on the fight team of prestigious Thai gym Tiger Muay Thai.
