Ted Cheeseman is set to face Kieron Conway on June 21 at Bethnal Green’s York Hall – his first ring outing since his failed European title challenge.
The Bermondsey boxer is still British champion and will put that belt on the line against his Northampton challenger (12-1).
Cheeseman had won 14 straight before dropping a unanimous decision to Spain’s Sergio Garcia in February.
And the South London did not want an easy bout to feel his way back in.
“He [Conway] is a good fighter,” said Cheeseman. “But I have just been in with the number two in the world and much as I didn’t win I have got to put pressure on myself.
“I need to perform. I need to do the business.
“I’m analytical of my own performance and I have to make sure I try and make everything perfect.
“For me, all this fight is about is getting the win and getting that winning streak going again, coming back with a clear mind and I’ve got a big year ahead – I’ve got to get this one out of the way first.”
