Anthony Joshua will attempt to defend his IBF world heavyweight title at the Manchester Arena on 26 November.
The British boxer's opponent will be named on 26 September.
"I can't wait to get back up north," said Joshua, who beat Konstantin Airich in Manchester in his eighth pro bout.
"I have been inspired over the summer by the fighters in the Olympics. It has given me a new perspective and huge hunger to get back in ring."
