The Bury fighter’s opponent, along with full details of the undercard, will be announced next week.
Quigg retained his title earlier in October despite his bout with Cuba’s Yoandris Salinas ending in a majority draw earlier in October.
“It’s great to be out again so soon and in Manchester too,” said Quigg. “I was a bit gutted not to get the 'W' [win] against Salinas as I felt that I deserved it. It was a tough fight but one that I felt that I came on very strong in at the end.
“That fight is in the past now though and I’m ready to defend my belt and do so in style. It’s going to be a massive occasion with Carl and George’s fight set to be one of the biggest in Britain for a long time, so I’m thrilled to be involved.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn added: “I’m delighted to add Scott to the huge bill.
“As Britain’s newest World champion, it’s great to be able to let him defend his title so quickly after the Salinas fight and he’s already in the gym raring to go.
