Joshua Buatsi raised his profile last time out with a seventh-round finish of Marko Calic in Milton Keynes back in October. The main event win was meant to be followed by chief support duty beneath the world title unification clash pitting Terri Harper against Hyun-mi Choi, until fate intervened.
Now, the Rio 2016 Olympian will once again close the show as he aims to continue his rise towards a possible world light-heavyweight title fight down the line. And standing in his way is a fellow unbeaten boxer who unlike the Brit keeps a very low profile.
Not a great deal is known in the mainstream about Daniel Blenda Dos Santos, the Frenchman who will strive to derail Buatsi's big plans. It could be a banana peel fight, if the Ghana-born 28-year-old doesn't bring his A-game.
A host of European championship action is also on tap for Saturday in what could turn into one of the sleeper cards of the 2021 fight sports calendar.
