British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion George Groves will face WBO champ Robert Stieglitz in Erfurt, Germany on 5 May.
Groves, 24, was forced to pull out of the second defence of his British and Commonwealth titles against Scotland’s Kenny Anderson last month because of a back injury.
"This is my time to arrive on the world scene," said Groves on his official website.
"I am chuffed to be given this opportunity to challenge for the WBO championship of the world. I’m bringing another world title back to Britain."
Groves gets his opportunity after first beating bitter rival and Olympic gold medalist James DeGale in May, 2011 to take the British and Commonwealth super-middleweight crown, then defending it with a second-round knockout of Paul Smith in November.
