Last Updated: 19/04/18 12:12pm
Joshua Buatsi will make his third Sky Sports Box Office appearance on the Tony Bellew vs David Haye 2 undercard.
The unbeaten light-heavyweight will be making his sixth professional appearance at The O2, on May 5.
Buatsi, who won an Olympic bronze medal at Rio 2016, has boxed on the last two Anthony Joshua events at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff, with his next opponent still to be confirmed.
It's my hometown in London which gives me that extra push to put on a display
"I'm happy to be back on the scene again on the big May 5 show," he said.
"It's my hometown in London which gives me that extra push to put on a display. It'll be another entertaining fight I'm sure, people come with expectations which I can hopefully meet and surpass them.
"As AJ calls The O2 'The Lions Den', it'll be a fantastic atmosphere in there on fight night. I can't wait to get back in there."
Buatsi trains up in Sheffield but will have to make the short trip from his hometown of Croydon, to appear at the iconic boxing venue for a third time.
The 25-year-old will be joined by local fans' favourites on a cracking night, including Martin J Ward defending his European super-featherweight title against James Tennyson, north London's John Ryder taking on Jamie Cox at super-middleweight and Rio 16 team-mate Joe Joyce challenging Commonwealth heavyweight champion Lenroy Thomas.
