The bill for the 02 Arena show is fast taking shape.

The highlight of the Eddie Warren promoted show will be Anthony Joshua making the first defence of his IBF heavyweight crown the Watford fighter won against Prince Charles Martin amidst wonderful scenes.

One fighter who is on the undercard, with his team having signed a two fight deal with Matchroom promotions is Chris Eubank Jnr.

In his last bout Eubank Jnr won the British middleweight title against Nick Blackwell, with Blackwell being hospitalized with a bleed on the skull. Blackwell, due to the injury he received that night, has subsequently called time on his career.

In the first of the two fights promoted by Matchroom, Eubank will be making a defence of his British middleweight crown against Tom Doran.

It?ll be interesting to see if the trauma of the Blackwell fight has affected Eubank Jnr who is an all-action, fast punching boxer.

I guess we?ll find out on the night.
