Anthony Joshua MBE will face Konstantin Airich at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on September 13.

The Kazakh-born German Heavyweight is tasked with stopping Joshua’s run of seven KO wins from seven pro fights, and the 35 year old brings a wealth of experience to the table, with 21 wins from 35 fights and having shared the ring for the full distance with Odlanier Solis and Denis Bakhtov and returns to Britain having reached the semi-finals of the Prizefighter International Heavyweights at Alexandra Palace in May 2011.

"This fight signifies the first real step up for Anthony," said promoter Eddie Hearn.

"Airich has plenty of experience at the top level, he’s a lively competitor and can punch. Anthony is fresh from his visit to spar Wladimir Klitschko and fans in Manchester can expect an explosive performance."

Joshua’s clash with Airich is part of an exciting night of action in Manchester, led by Scott Quigg’s WBA World Super Bantamweight title defence against Stephane Jamoye with chief support coming from Anthony Crolla’s WBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title defence against Gamaliel Diaz.

Scotty Cardle challenges Kirk Goddings for the English Lightweight title with the fight also an eliminator for the British belt, the first of two exciting eliminator contests for the coveted Lord Lonsdale strap as welterweights Sam Eggington and Denton Vassell clash while local favourites Liam Hanrahan and Sam Hyde are joined by former Team GB star Gamal Yafai and Derbyshire’s Jack Massey.

Airich cant take it and this wont last more than two rounds. This is not a better test than old Skelton was. I hope after this Joshua will fight the great fighters like Martin Rogan, Sexton and Danny Williams. If he can beat these 3 Klitschko will be easy. All These 3 are far better than Klitschk...
