Luke Campbell will end a five month absence from the ring when he returns to action in Liverpool next month.

The Olympic gold medallist took a break from the sport in April after his father was diagnosed with cancer, but he has been added to a packed bill at the Echo Arena on July 12.

Former Great Britain teammates and fellow medal winners at London 2012 Anthony Joshua and Anthony Ogogo, will also appear on a card that includes Tony Bellew, Nathan Cleverly and local duo, Rocky Fielding and Callum Smith.

The unbeaten Campbell last fought in February, picking up his fifth straight win with an eighth round stoppage of Scott Moises in Hull.

Bellew is due to face Brazilian Julio Cesar Dos Santos as he closes on a rematch with bitter rival Cleverly.

The Welshman takes on Argentine Alejandro Emilio Valori at the same venue and will stay on course for a battle with Bellew if he emerges victorious.

Super-middleweight Fielding makes a step-up in class against the experienced Noe Gonzalez, while Joshua faces former world title challenger Matt Skelton.
