Kell Brook to fight in world title eliminator against unknown Brandon Cook on Dillian Whyte undercard against Joseph Parker

Brook is looking for his second win back after losing to Gennady Golovkin and more recently Errol Spence Jr.

Also on the packed July 28 card will be Katie Taylor.

The Irish fighter will be looking to retain her IBF and WBA world titles against Kimberley Connor.

Fast-rising light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi will faces a real step-up in just his seventh outing as a pro.

He will go head-to-head with former British title challenger Ricky Summers in his first ten-round contest.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “July 28 is a huge night of boxing with a brilliant 50-50 heavyweight matchup and a stacked card beneath it.

“Kell returns to the scene of his epic shootout with GGG [Gennady Golovkin] to face highly ranked Canadian Brandon Cook in a world title eliminator that will put him in pole position for a shot at all the world champions.

“Irish sensation Katie Taylor returns to The O2 to defend her WBA and IBF World titles against mandatory challenger Kimberley Connor, Conor Benn rematches Cedric Peynaud for his first title after their 2017 fight of the year contender and Joshua Buatsi makes a huge step up to face Birmingham’s Ricky Summers in his first ten-round fight.

“There is still plenty more to be added this week including one major title fight – roll on July 28!”
