Daniel Dubois will return to the ring in a few weeks’ time.
The heavyweight has been out of action since October when he outpointed Kevin Johnson in Leicester.
Dubois went the distance with the American at the Morningside Arena, exclusively live on BT Sport.
And the 21-year-old will be back on the same platform on March 8 when he faces Razvan Cojanu at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Cojanu, the former WBO world title challenger, lost to Nathan Gorman –– a man Dubois could end up fighting before the end of the year –– back in December when Gorman’s WBC International Silver belt was at stake.
The pair were meant to meet back in December, but Dubois fell ill and it meant that the Romanian faced Ricky Hatton-trained Gorman.
"The chance to fight at the Royal Albert Hall is a huge thrill for me and I really hope it is the first of many opportunities to perform there," said the 21-year-old. "I am fully aware that many of the British heavyweight greats of the past fought at this historic venue and it will be an honour to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Henry Cooper, Frank Bruno and Lennox Lewis.
"I know the Albert Hall was the favourite place to watch boxing for many older fans so it is brilliant that a new generation will now get the chance to sample the experience too."
Nicola Adams will bid for her crowning moment at the South Kensington concert hall when she fights Arely Mucino for the WBO world flyweight crown.
‘The Lioness’ won the interim belt in October with a clear cut points victory over Isabel Millan in her fifth professional fight.
The 29-year-old Mexican Mucino holds a record of 27-3-2 and is a three-time world champion, winning the IBF title in 2011 and successfully defending three times before losing a challenge for the WBC belt in 2012.
She won the WBO title in February of last year with a majority decision over Monserrat Alarcon before overcoming Maria Salinas via a split decision in September.
And Liam Williams will defend the British middleweight title for the first time against Joe Mullender.
Williams, who stopped Mark Heffron inside 10 rounds at Manchester Arena back in December to win the vacant bauble, will come up against the former English champion on a card at a venue that first staged a boxing competition in 1918.
British welterweight champion Johnny Garton, WBO European super-featherweight champion Archie Sharp and undefeated Lucas Ballingall will also feature on the bill.
