Anthony Ogogo will fight on the undercard of fellow Olympian Luke Campbell's professional debut next month.

The middleweight - a bronze medallist in London last summer - returns to England for his third pro fight after a successful debut in the United States in May.

His opponent on the 'Homecoming' bill at Craven Park on July 13 is yet to be finalised, although the contest will be over six rounds.

Ogogo said: "It's great to be on the same card as my Olympic team-mate and one of my best friends outside of the ring, Luke Campbell.

"I expect a spectacular performance from Luke on the night, and I'm planning on delivering one myself and really give my home country fans a show."

Gold medallist Campbell's pro debut over six rounds is the star attraction in his home town, while Kell Brook will take on American Carson Jones for a second time on a bill also featuring Derry Mathews, Lee Selby and middleweight prospect John Ryder.
