International boxing will return to Bluewater in January.
The Glow venue staged boxing for the first time back in October as James DeGale successfully defended his European super middleweight title.
And promoter Mick Hennessy will return with DeGale and his other top boxers for another night of professional bouts on Saturday, January 26.
DeGale – who on Saturday beat Fulgencio Zuniga to claim the prestigious vacant WBC Silver super middleweight title – will be aiming to defend his European crown once more, this time against Italian-based fighter Mouhamed Ali Ndiaye.
It will be one more step to an eventual shot at the world title. DeGale said: “Next year I want to be fighting for a world title and this time next year I want to be world champion.”
Chris Eubank Jnr is again expected on the bill, which is currently being put together and already includes Kent’s unbeaten lightweight boxer Adam Dingsdale.
Dingsdale has won all six of his professional fights, with his latest victory coming at the Brentwood Centre on Saturday night, where he beat Ideh Ockuko on points.
