Amir Khan's next fight against Californian Julio Diaz will take place at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena on April 27.

Khan (27-3)  will be having his second fight under new trainer Virgil Hunter after defeating Carlos Molina in his last fight in December. That followed defeats to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia which prompted the Bolton fighter to part with trainer Freddie Roach.

Two time lightweight champion Diaz (40-7-1) is unbeaten since moving up to 147 lbs following a stoppage loss to Kendall Holt.

This will be a 143 lbs catchweight contest.

Olympic bronze medalist Anthony Ogogo will make his pro debut on the undercard and Khan's brother Haroon is likely to feature.
