Anthony Joshua has given his fans the all-important date of his first IBF world title defence.
The great news for heavyweight fans is that it will no longer clash with Tyson Fury's return fight against Wladimir Klitschko at the Manchester Arena on July 9.
As reported in the Daily Mirror, Joshua announced: "If there is a date to get in your diary it's June 25 - my first title defence, The O2."

"I want to be active so that is why I chose the closest date. I appreciate you guys and I can't wait to see you again and put on a great performance."
However, there is still no news of who will be joining Joshua in the ring on the night. Bermane Stiverne, Eric Molina and the unbeaten Dominic Breazeale are all potential opponents.
Joshua became champion earlier this month with a second-round knockout of American Charles Martin, despite the fact that it was only the Olympic Champion's 16th professional fight.
His promoter Eddie Hearn made the wise decision not to hold his first defence of the title on the same night as Fury after fans complained about the clash.
He may also have had his own concerns about Fury stealing the limelight on the night when the WBA and WBO champion faces Ukranian Klitschko for the second time.
The real question for all heavyweight fans, however, is if and when Fury and Joshua will be fighting each other.
Fury has launched scathing attacks on Joshua before and after his IBF victory - the belt Fury was stripped of - and Joshua is keen to take his revenge in the ring. It will be one of the most hotly-anticipated bouts in decades if it happens.
