After an impressive education in the professional ranks, Bellotti makes a major step-up against Cunningham, a seasoned champion who has claimed the Commonwealth title in two weight divisions.

Bellotti continued his rise up the rankings with a stoppage of Jamie Speight in July, earning him the WBC international title, but he is facing the sternest test of his 10-fight unbeaten career.

Promoter Eddie Hearn says Reece Bellotti will soon be ready for a British title shot

Cunningham previously held the Commonwealth title at bantamweight, then moved up to take the featherweight version with a points win over Ben Jones in April, and has racked up six straight wins since a brave points defeat to Kal Yafai.

Chamberlain will be hoping to send out a warning to Lawrence Okolie with another knockout victory.

The unbeaten cruiserweight made short work of Ryan Crawford in July, despite a weight disadvantage, as he ruthlessly completed a second-round stoppage.

Chamberlain has been embroiled in a war of words with Okolie and victory over Jervier will keep him on course for a grudge fight in 2018.

Ted Cheeseman vs Aristides Quintero

Cheeseman is one of Britain's hottest young prospects, with seven knockouts on his perfect pro record, and he overpowered Matthew Ryan in three rounds to secure the English super-welterweight title in July.

There was a bizarre ending to the 22-year-old's last outing as opponent Francesco Lezzi was disqualified for pushing the referee after being floored in the second round.
