Joshua will fight Welshman Dorian Darch on a packed card which includes Lee Purdy's European welterweight title challenge against unbeaten Leonard Bundu, plus West Ham lightweight Kevin Mitchell.
Joshua, who claimed his Olympic title with a countback victory over Roberto Cammarelle last year, scored his second professional win with a second-round stoppage over Paul Butlin late last month.
The 29-year-old Darch has won seven of his nine professional fights but has only won once inside the distance and was beaten on points by Hughie Fury - younger brother of heavyweight contender Tyson - last time out.
Joshua's fight against Darch is dependent on him coming through his third professional bout in Bethnal Green on November 14 against an opponent yet to be named.
