Former IBF World champion Lee Selby returns to the ring following his loss to Josh Warrington last year to face hard-hitting American Omar Douglas with a championship title on the line set to be confirmed shortly.

'The Juggernaught' Joe Joyce gets his acid test as he defends his Commonwealth title in the biggest test of his unbeaten career when he takes a gigantic leap up to confront the former WBC World Champion Bermane Stiverne.

There's a debutant appearing on the card who may be one of the most decorated amateurs of this millennium - Chez Nihell. The 31-year-old from Aldershot cleaned up in the amateurs and was just recently voted Army Sportsman of the Year 2018 - definitely one to watch!

Sebastian Eubank - the younger brother of Chris Jr - has his second professional fight on the undercard against debutant Dan Belcher. The 27-year-old is the fourth member of the famous fighting family to enter the paid ranks - following Junior, cousin Harlem and half-brother Nathanael Wilson.
