Chris Eubank Jr is set to challenge for the IBO super-middleweight title on February 4.
The second generation, whose father Chris Sr. even made it on to one of the fight posters, will take on Renold Quinlan at the London Olympia, exclusively live on ITV Box Office.
Quinlan vs. Eubank Jr. will set back fans a cost of £12.95 and the Poxon Sports-promoted event, which is in association with Unity Motion, will feature a heavyweight clash between David Price (21-3, 18 KOs) and Christian Hammer (20-4, 11 KOs).
Former European super-bantamweight champion Kid Galahad (21-0, 12 KOs) is on the bill in a 12-round featherweight showdown against Oleg Yefimovych, while the undercard is blessed with a mouth-watering middleweight clash between Adam Etches (20-1, 17 KOs) and John Ryder (23-3, 12 KOs), which will be broadcast on ITV4.
A win for Galahad in his fight with Yefimovych will, Boxing Scene understands, land him in pole position for a shot at the IBF champion Lee Selby.
Boxing Scene has also been told that the fight between Price and Hammer is an eliminator for a heavyweight title.
The Hamburg-based Hammer scored a career best win his last time out when he beat Erkan Teper on points. Price was badly knocked out by Teper in 2015 in a EBU title fight, but after that contest Teper tested positive for anabolic steroids. Price he returned last year with two wins against very overmatched opponents.
Hammer began his career with Universum and lost his pro debut due to a dislocated shoulder. He also lost internal eliminators during Universum´s final years to Mariusz Wach and Taras Bidenko, but was resurrected by EC Boxing and now holds the WBO European title.
Further undercard fights will be revealed in due course.
