Neal Lofts, Craven's coach, said: "I will go out of my way to find tough tests for fighters outside of the professional ranks and that's exactly what Andy has in Mark Darkeise.
"Whatever the result, it will be a great learning experience."
Topping the bill, which is a CSFC Professional card, is Fight Ministry professional Louie Chapman, from Hull.
Chapman faces the unbeaten Mancunian Saul Rogers in an under-66kg bout.
Lofts said: "Louie's fight is highly anticipated by followers of the domestic mixed martial arts scene.
"These are two tough matches for our guys, but it's where we want to be as a team. Shows like CSFC and 10th Legion are premier promotions within this county – fighters need to be notching wins on them to progress."
