Callum Johnson has confirmed his next fight will be on June 27.

The Boston boxer will fight on the undercard of Ricky Burns’ WBC lightweight title eliminator against Dejan Zlaticanin at Glasgow’s Braehead Arena.

The evening’s action will be screened on Sky Sports.

Light heavyweight Johnson - who remains unbeaten since turning professional in 2010 after winning gold at the Commonwealth Games - made his return to action in style last month after a year-long absence, beating Lithuanian Egidijus Kakstys in the second round on a show in Lincoln.

He is no stranger to the Braehead Arena, having won there three times in the past.

Johnson stopped Philip Townley and Tommy Tolan there, as well as defeating Jody Meikle on points.

His opponent for the June bout is yet to be named.
