Carl Frampton will return to action against Argentina's Fabian Orozco at Wembley Arena on July 20.
Frampton took his record to 16-0 in February when he beat Kiko Martinez, becoming first boxer to knock the Spaniard out when he stopped him in the ninth round to win the EBU super-bantamweight belt.
The fight is on the undercard of Dereck Chisora's heavyweight clash with American Malik Scott.
"I think it will be a very exciting fight. From the footage I have seen of him he seems keen to get in to tear ups, which is what I like, someone who'll come and have a fight," Frampton said. "I think our styles will suit each other."
"Fabian Orozco is a talented, hard-punching boxer/fighter who is coming to Wembley believing he can beat Carl Frampton," said Barry McGuigan, Frampton's manager.
"He is rough and uncompromising and will definitely come to fight. Carl must win all of his fights as he gets closer to that world title he craves. We feel Fabian will bring the best out of Frampton and give the Wembley audience an enthralling fight."
