For power puncher Chamberlain, with a perfect 7-0 pro record, it provides him with another opportunity as he bids to continue his push to get his name in title contention.

This will be the Waterlooville fighter's third fight since boxing returned in the UK last July.

Chamberlain beat Stu Greener in what was the first bout after the sport's return in Britain following the the coronavirus pandemic stoppage.
