Watford’s Anthony Joshua will face Konstantin Airich at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on Saturday, September 13.

Joshua has won all of his seven professional fights by knock out but the Kazakh-born German heavyweight has a wealth of experience, with 21 wins from 35 fights.

He’s forced Odlanier Solis and Denis Bakhtov the full distance and reached the semi-finals of the Prizefighter International Heavyweights at Alexandra Palace in May 2011.

Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn said: “This fight signifies the first real step up for Anthony. “Airich has plenty of experience at the top level, he’s a lively competitor and can punch.

“Anthony is fresh from his visit to spar Wladimir Klitschko and fans in Manchester can expect an explosive performance.”
