Ted Cheeseman will challenge for the European super-welterweight title on February 2.
The Bermondsey puncher faces Spaniard Sergio Garcia at Greenwich’s 02 Arena in a clash of two undefeated fighters.
Cheeseman won the British title in October as he outpointed Asinia Byfield.
There looks set to be a domestic match-up with Liverpool’s Anthony Fowler later in 2019.
Cheeseman has won all 15 of his fights.
Garcia’s record stands at 28-0.
Crystal Palace light-heavyweight Craig Richards (13-1) faces Jake Ball in a 10-rounder on the undercard.
Richard’s has won three fights inside the distance since a unanimous decision points loss to Frank Buglioni for the British title in October.
