Anthony Joshua will be making his fourth appearance as a professional when he takes on Hector Avila of Argentina in Manchester on November 23.

The Olympic champion is the latest name to be confirmed on the huge show at the Phones4U Arena in support of Carl Froch's world title defence against George Groves.

Joshua, who has won his first two fights via impressive stoppage, will face Croatian Hrvoje Kisicek on November 14 at York Hall in addition to the latest Prizefighter tournament.

Avila is a 38-year-old veteran of 38 fights, with a 22-15-1 slate, and will be making his second trip to the UK in under a year.

He was Dereck Chisora's opponent in April when the Londoner emerged from a 12-month suspension to stop Avila in the ninth round.

Joshua will be joined on the show by fellow Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell, who will also be taking part in his fourth fight in the paid ranks.
