Team GB Olympic trio Joe Cordina , Lawrence Okolie and Josh Kelly had their names in a pot to draw out  who would box on the blockbuster night of Anthony Joshua MBE vs Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The draw took place on Monday night in Central London at JD Sports where Tony Bellew and promoter Eddie Hearn where on hand to make the draw.

Joe Cordina was the lucky Olympian to be drawn and the Welshman, who has his 2nd pro fight,  will now take the same slot that Anthony Joshua took in his first fight at Wembley Stadium on the night Carl Froch knocked out George Groves.

Lawrence Okolie will be a live float in his third pro outing after two first round KOs under his belt so far and Sunderland ace Josh Kelly will also float on the night in his second fight in the paid ranks.

Cordina, Okolie and Kelly are part of a historic night of action on the sold-out blockbuster battle between IBF king Joshua and former lineal World ruler Klitschko, with the WBA and IBO straps also up for grabs, Scott Quigg faces Viorel Simion in an eliminator for the IBF World Featherweight title, Luke Campbell MBE and Darleys Perez clash for the number one spot in the WBA, Irish sensation Katie Taylor faces Nina Meinke for the WBA Inter-Continental Lightweight title and World title eliminator.
