BRADLEY Saunders will fight a top rated Frenchman on the big Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury grudge match bill in Manchester in July.
Unbeaten local star Saunders has been matched with Christopher Sebire at the Phones 4u Arena on July 26.
The 28-year-old made quick work of Ville Piispanen when he won the WBO Inter-continental at Newcastle earlier this month, knocking out the Finn in the first round with a devastating left hook to the body.
Sebire comes to Manchester armed with a good record and a second round knock-out victory in his last bout.
The 29-year-old, from Rouen, has won 23 of his 31 contests, including nine inside the distance and is the former French light-welterweight champion and a contender for a number of world belts.
Saunders made it 10 wins out of 10 when he flattened former European Union title holder Piispanen at the Metro Radio Arena, his eighth success by KO.
