Last Updated: 15/05/17 3:54pm
Paul Smith will challenge Tyron Zeuge for the WBA's World super-middleweight title next month.
The 34-year-old has landed a third chance at world level after suffering back-to-back defeats to WBO champion Arthur Abraham in 2014 and 2015.
Smith was stopped by Andre Ward in his next fight but has since strung together three straight wins.
The Liverpudlian told Sky Sports at the weekend he had been "waiting since November or December" for confirmation of his shot at Zeuge, who is nine years his junior.
The German is unbeaten in 21 fights and won the title in a rematch with Giovanni De Carolis after their first meeting ended in a draw.
