Kal Yafai and Anthony Ogogo have both been added to the undercard of Anthony Joshua v Dominic Breazeale on June 25.
Joshua makes the first defence of his IBF world heavyweight title at The O2 - live on Sky Sports Box Office - and two of British boxing's brightest rising stars, super-flyweight Yafai and middleweight Ogogo, have been added to the undercard of a star-studded bill including Chris Eubank Jr v Tom Doran, George Groves v Martin Murray and more.
Yafai (18-0-KO12), who won the British title at the end of last year and is now chasing world honours, said: "I'm delighted to be boxing at The O2 on June 25.
"This is going to be a big year for me. I kicked it off well with my win in Birmingham and with the right fights at the right time, it's a year that I believe will end in a world title win.
"It's a brilliant bill stacked with talented fighters and topped by Anthony Joshua's world title fight - it doesn't get any better than that and I am really looking forward to getting out there and putting on a great display."
Ogogo (9-0-KO5) has endured a horrendous time with injuries but after a ruthless stoppage of Gary Cooper last month, finally looks ready to mount a challenge for belts.
The Olympic bronze medalist said: "I can't wait to get back in the ring on June 25 at The O2. It's going to be an explosive night of boxing with my Olympic teammate and good friend Anthony Joshua heading the bill, as well as George Groves as chief support, and I'm looking forward to being a part of it.
"It was great to be back in the ring on the Ricky Burns card in Glasgow in May and I just want to keep busy now and fight as often as I can to build momentum - starting on June 25. I'll be looking to make a big statement."
