British heavyweights Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce have agreed a deal for a British title fight.

The British Boxing Board of Control announced the agreement but no date or venue has been set.

The Board said in a statement: "Following agreement being reached between the parties, the contest to be promoted by Frank Warren will take place on a date and at a venue as yet to be advised."

Dubois, 21, has won all 10 of his fights and 33-year-old Joyce, an Olympic silver medallist in 2016, is unbeaten in eight professional bouts.
