The former Olympic champion will defend his WBC silver super-middleweight title at the Kent venue where he has already appeared twice.

"Bluewater always has a real intensity about it and a real intimate feel, which is something that the boxing fraternity and us as fighters love," DeGale said.

"I just can't wait to get in there and give a huge, devastating performance that takes the atmosphere to another level."

DeGale is ranked fifth by the WBC but is also eyeing the winner of November's Carl Froch v George Groves fight in 2014.

"It's a really strong division with a lot of talented fighters and I'd say I'm inside the top 10 and very excited to mix it with the best and show everything I've got," he added.

"I look at the Froch v Groves fight and I know that in the next six months it's likely that I'll fight the winner of that one, so it really is exciting times.

"I'm ready and willing to fight anyone and it's time to step up and face the best."
