Chris Eubank Jr returns to action on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's IBF world title fight with Dominic Breazeale at The O2.
The exciting middleweight features on a packed bill for Joshua's first defence of his IBF heavyweight belt against Breazeale, which also includes George Groves' all-British battle with Martin Murray on June 25, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Eubank Jr, the reigning British champion, has signed a new deal with Matchroom Boxing and will seek his 23rd victory next month.
"It's great to be back on the Matchroom team and I'm really looking forward to fighting again on Sky," said Eubank Jr.
"Anthony and I make a great British double act, when on the same card, and we guarantee excellent entertainment for our fans. I'm confident that there will be many more victories for both of us in the near future."
Promoter Eddie Hearn has ambitious plans for Eubank Jr, who has risen to No 2 in the WBA and No 3 in the WBC rankings.
"I'm delighted to agree a new promotional contract with Chris Eubank Jr," said Hearn.
"He is fast becoming one of the biggest star attractions in the sport and I feel we have the perfect platform in Sky Sports to continue that and deliver him the huge fights.
"It's a fantastic addition to the June 25 card and just like the last time 'Junior' was there, I'm sure he will light up The O2."
Eubank Jr is joined on the bill by highly-rated prospect Conor Benn, opening the door for a reunion between both fighter's fathers, who have been discussing a possible rematch in recent months.
