Tony Bellew has announced he will fight Argentina's Roberto Bolonti on November 17.

The bout will take place at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham and will be on the undercard of Carl Froch's IBF super-middleweight title fight with Yusaf Mack.

Bolonti, the current South American champion, boasts a record of 30-1 with his sole loss coming in a four-rounder over six years ago.

The 33-year-old should provide another tough test for world title hopeful Bellew, although Bolonti will be fighting outside his home country for the first time.

Liverpudlian Bellew stopped Edison Miranda in nine rounds in September.

And with Bolonti rated as high as sixth in the WBC rankings a win for Bellew could take him within one fight of becoming the mandatory challenger to current champion Chad Dawson.

And with promoter Eddie Hearn announcing he wants Bellew to headline a show in February, that could come sooner rather than later.
