Britain’s Anthony Joshua, who was born to Nigerian parents, will make the first defence of his IBF world heavyweight title on 25 June at the O2 Arena in London.
Joshua, who beat Charles Martin in April, his 16th professional fight, has not yet announced an opponent for the first defence of his title.
The London 2012 super heavyweight gold medallist knocked out Martin in the second round and potential opponents for his next fight include Bermane Stiverne, Eric Molina and Dominic Breazeale.
In a video posted on his official Twitter account, Joshua said: “I’ve been speaking with my coach and I want the closest fight date possible because I’m feeling good. I can’t wait to get back into the training camp and pick up where we left off.
“The date to put in your diary is June 25, back at the O2 Arena for my first title defence and a jam-packed undercard.
“I can’t wait to be back and I’m looking forward to performing once again.”Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
