Harvey Dykes is set to return to action with a date at York Hall.

The Brighton heavyweight will fight at the legendary London venue on April 12.

His opponent has yet to be confirmed but is understood to be a tough competitor from Bosnia.

The six-round bout will be part of Dykes’ build-up to ten-rounders by the end of 2024.

Dykes has been dividing his training time between Brighton and London, where he is working with Don Charles.

He made a well-supported pro debut at the Brighton Centre in November.

The following month he outpointed Canadian prospect Tyler Tremblett over six rounds in the Cayman Islands.

Two potential fights since then have fallen through but he has not dropped his work rate.

Dykes’ coach Luke Hewett said: “Harvey has hardly left the gym since just after Christmas.

“Everyone has been impressed by how he has taken to life as a pro.

“He is getting that professional style about him.”

Dykes will head to Latvia later next month for three weeks sparring with Mairis Bredis, who is preparing to fight for the vacant IBF cruiserweight crown against Jai Opetaia on the Tyson Fury-Oleksandr Usyk undercard on May 18.
