Two huge bouts have been added to the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders' next fight - including another Hatfield star.

The WBO world middleweight champion will face Martin Murray at the O2 on June 23 in his fourth title defence.

But promoter Frank Warren has put Tom Little into a big clash with heavyweight sensation Daniel Dubois.

Dubois has won all seven on his pro fights by knockout but the Hatfield man senses he has a chance.

Little said: “I’m delighted to get the opportunity to stop the hype machine in its tracks.

“This is a fight that I truly believe I will win. I’m not taking anything away from Daniel, he’s very talented but I’ve seen gaps in his armour and things that I can exploit, he’s tailor made for me.”

Also on the card is undefeated super-lightweight Josh Leather squaring off with highly-ranked Hackney man Ohara Davies.
