Brian Rose will challenge Demetrius Andrade for the WBO Light Middleweight title on June 14 in America, live on Sky Sports.
The Blackpool star earned his shot with a gutsy win over Javier Maciel in Sheffield in October, and the 29 year old is set to be on the undercard of Ruslan Provodnikovâ€™s latest WBO Light Welterweight defence.
Roseâ€™s shot represents a remarkable rise to the top after claiming the Lonsdale belt outright in 2012 before moving onto the World scene with a final round stoppage of Joachim Alcine in April 2013 to claim the WBO Inter-Continental title and move into range for his dream shot, on a night that he plans to shock the world.
â€śIâ€™m delighted that Eddie Hearn has got me this shot,â€ť said Rose.
â€śItâ€™s a dream come true for me and something that I have wanted since I starting boxing at the age of 9.
â€śItâ€™s going to be a great experience for me and my trainer Bobby to go out to America and compete for the World title. But weâ€™re not going over there to make up the numbers; Iâ€™m bringing that belt back to the UK.
â€śAndrade is no doubt a World class fighter. Heâ€™s got the title and an impressive amateur pedigree. But Iâ€™ve got experience on my side, Iâ€™ve had more fights and more 12 rounders. Iâ€™ve been in with better and tougher opponents so this fight doesnâ€™t and wonâ€™t faze me.
â€śOn June 14 I will prove my critics wrong once again, Iâ€™m going to return as a World Champion.â€ť
â€śIâ€™m delighted that Brian will get his shot at WBO champ Demetrius Andrade,â€ť said Hearn. â€śBrian came through a tough final eliminator against Javier Maciel and him and Bobby have been building a plan ever since to beat Andrade. Itâ€™s a huge opportunity for Brian and one I know he is relishing.â€ť
