Alex Morrison, the Glasgow promoter who has become Harrison's manager, will co-promote the show with Frank Warren and the bout will be shown live on Warren's Box Nation television channel.
Morrison has confirmed the fight will be at super-featherweight over 10 rounds against top-rated foreign opposition.
"We have booked the Kelvin Hall for June 8," Morrison said. "The plan is to match Scott with a top-level foreign opponent as there is no time to lose and no point in anything other than Scott's first fight being a real test against credible opposition.
"People have to remember that Scott never lost his title inside the ring and, from what I have seen of him in training, he is even stronger now and more hungry than ever to make this work. I will take a lot of personal satisfaction in helping Scott reclaim what is his and proving the doom-mongers wrong."
Harrison had been scheduled to return to the ring on March 31 at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, after having his licence returned following a seven-year absence from the ring spent battling problems with alcohol.
That projected return failed to materialise, though, as a contractual dispute between Frank Maloney, his former manager, and promoter Warren left the Glaswegian's comeback strangled in red tape.
Harrison's frustration at his failure to return to action resulted in him being reported to the procurator fiscal following alleged theft and minor public disorder offences.
It was feared that it could lead to Harrison being stripped of his licence just months after it had been reinstated following his release from a Spanish jail.
However, it is understood that the Scottish Area Council of the British Boxing Board of Control will decide against taking formal action against Harrison at their next meeting now that it has emerged the procurator fiscal will not be proceeding with charges against the 34-year-old.
Maloney having torn up his managerial contract with the former champion, Morrison took over and agreed to co-promote Harrison with Warren, who retained promotional rights for the former champion.
It will be the Harrison's first fight for more than six years, if it goes ahead.
Meanwhile, John Simpson, the former British featherweight champion, will make his comeback on Saturday, May 12, at Morrison Promotions' show at Gorbals Leisure Centre, Glasgow.
