Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF world heavyweight title for the second time come November 26 at the Manchester Arena.
The 26-year-old undefeated Brit defended his title for the first time against Dominic Breazeale, knocking him out in the seventh round back in June.
The British boxer’s opponent will be named on 26 September.
“I can’t wait to get back up north,” said Joshua, who beat Konstantin Airich in Manchester in his eighth pro bout.
“I have been inspired over the summer by the fighters in the Olympics. It has given me a new perspective and huge hunger to get back in ring.”
