Deeside's Tom Doran will challenge British middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's first defence of his IBF World heavyweight belt.
Doran is in career-best form following four straight knockout victories and the unbeaten 28-year-old has been rewarded with a crack at Brighton-based star Eubank Jr in London on June 25 live on Sky Sports Box Office.
While the fight represents a sizeable step up in class for Doran, there's little doubt he deserves his opportunity and Eubank Jr's team will be only too aware of his punch power.
Eubank Jr, whose sole defeat was against now WBO World middleweight king Billy Joe Saunders in November 2014, claimed the British title when he stopped Nick Blackwell in a brutal contest in March. Blackwell was placed in a coma following the fight suffering a bleed to the brain and last month announced his retirement from the sport.
Eubank Jr, 26, holds a high WBA ranking and is expected to fight for a world title inside 12 months but Doran could scupper those plans if he can mastermind an upset.
Doran secured the WBC International middlewight belt in April, recovering from a first round knockdown to stop Ireland's Luke Keeler in an explosive bout at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
The Connah's Quay man inflicted Keeler’s only defeat as a professional en route to his win in the Prizefighter Middleweights III tournament last February and the Dubliner had vowed to avenge that loss.
But, after a brutal first round Sky Sports analyst Tony Bellew called the best he had seen in a British ring, Doran overwhelmed his opponent in the second round to extend his perfect record to 17-0.
Doran's clash with Eubank Jr will take place on a packed show at the O2 headlined with Joshua's fight against unbeaten American Dominic Breazeale.
George Groves and Martin Murray meet in a mouth-watering domestic super-middleweight blockbuster and WBA World title eliminator bout on the same evening.
