Frank Warren has announced that Ricky Burns will headline a show at Excel Arena in London on December 15.

Burns knocked out Kevin Mitchell to retain his WBO lightweight title last month, and will make his third defence in the card's main event.

George Groves, Billy Joe Saunders and Tony Conquest will also feature on the capital undercard, with Warren delighted that his end of year show features a strong lineup.

Warren said: "It's a great show to end the year with and I'm delighted to stage it at the Excel in London.

"Ricky looked phenomenal beating Kevin Mitchell and proved why I call him the most improved fighter in the country.

"He's got a lot of fans backing him in London when he beat Michael Katsidis and now with his win over Mitchell it will attracted even more."

Warren's other world champion Nathan Cleverly is back in action on Saturday, October 27 when he defends his light heavyweight crown against Vyacheslav Uzelkov.
