In the first ever boxing show to be held at the Olympic venue, 23-year-old Saunders (17-0, 10 KOs) will defend his British title against Ryder (14-0, 8 KOs) on a Queensberry Promotions card.
Both men could enter the bout minus their spotless records, however, as they each take on a tune-up opponent in July.
Saunders will meet Ireland’s Gary O’Sullivan on July 20 at Wembley for O’Sullivan’s WBO International title, whilst Ryder has been announced for Matchroom’s July 13 card against an opponent to be confirmed.
The Copper Box is the only permanent indoor sports arena retained in the Olympic Park, as the Basketball Arena is being relocated.
British basketball side London Lions will become permanent residents at the Copper Box, which hosted handball and modern pentathlon fencing during London 2012, for the 2013-14 British Basketball League season.
The 7,000 venue’s quirky name is taken simply from the material which provides the cladding for its box-like exterior, which features 3,000 square metres of partly recycled copper.
