HIGHLY rated light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi is being lined up for a return to action on August 31 on the undercard of Vasyl Lomachenko and Luke Campbell’s world lightweight unification clash at the O2 Arena in London.

Buatsi, 11-0, with nine stoppages, last stepped between the ropes to dismantle Marco Antonio Periban in four rounds at Madison Square Garden in New York, on the same night as Anthony Joshua’s shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr back in June.

The Ghanaian born prospect has no opponent as of yet and is unsure whether he will be defending any of the titles currently in his possession.
