British WBA world bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell will defend his title against Juan Alberto Rosas on 9 April.

McDonnell, 30, will face Rosas on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s IBF world heavyweight title bout with Charles Martin at the O2 in London.

It will be McDonnell’s first fight in the UK since he defeated Argentina’s Javier Chacon in Liverpool in 2014.

The Doncaster fighter retained his title with back-to-back wins over Japan’s Tomoki Kameda last year.
