It was officially confirmed earlier this week that super middleweights Rocky Fielding and Erik Skoglund would contest the WBC Silver title on the bill, which has now been followed up by the news that Haye prospect Joe Joyce will trade blows with Tom Little.
Joyce, GB’s Olympic silver medallist from Rio, is 1-0 in the top division ranks after stopping Ian Lewison on his debut and will hope to make it a second successive victory against 10-4 Little.
Also moved to next month is the Commonwealth title rematch between Lenroy Thomas and David Allen, which was originally due to go ahead on Anthony Joshua’s undercard last week.
The fight fell through when Thomas accepted an offer to participate on the Deontay Wilder undercard in New York on Saturday.
Added to that heavyweight triple are the likes of Natasha Jonas, bidding for a fourth pro win, and young undefeated former amateur stars Josh Kelly and Joshua Buatsi.
Hayemaker Ringstar’s light heavyweight pair Michael Page and Willy Hutchinson also have places on the Pay-Per-View Sky Sports Box Office event, whilst Conor Benn and Ohara Davies make up the final numbers so far,
