Michael Hunter continues his quest for respect in a stacked heavyweight division this coming Thursday, and he does so on Triller's latest combat sports card.

Hunter, who took Alexander Povetkin to the limit in a draw on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. 2, will face Jerry Forrest, the man who famously had rising Chinese maximum-weight slugger Zhilei Zhang in some hot water before succumbing to defeat in February.

Triller's TrillerVerz IV card is being subtitled 'Night Of The Heavyweights', with more big man action on tap throughout the night in the Big Apple.
