Lawrence Okolie has had his second opponent confirmed.
The former Olympian, who scored a highlight reel 20-second knockout on his debut last month, returns to the ring on Saturday.
Okolie saw off Geoffrey Cave on the undercard of Jorge Linares’ world lightweight title victory in the rematch against Anthony Crolla at Manchester Arena on March 25.
And after being added to the undercard of Ricky Burns’ world super-lightweight title unification showdown against Julius Indongo, which will be aired exclusively live on Sky Sports, the 24-year-old has a foe for his next outing.
He will box once more over four rounds –– but he faces overseas opposition in the shape of Lukasz Rusiewicz.
Rusiewicz, 35, from Poland, was last in action on February 25, when he was stopped in just 31 seconds by David Allen, will be hoping to last slightly longer against Okolie.
Elsewhere on the card, Scott Cardle will box in a defence of the British lightweight title against English champion Robbie Barrett.
Charlie Edwards and Iain Butcher meet in a clash for the vacant British super-flyweight title, Josh Kelly, who recently inked promotional terms with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, will make his professional debut on the card against Jay Byrne and Charlie Flynn will face Ryan Collins for the vacant Celtic lightweight title.
Meanwhile, there is a title clash between Joe Ham and Scott McCormack as the pair vie for the vacant Scottish super-bantamweight title and action for Lewis Paulin, Ryan Smith and Ally Black.
