Janibek Alimkhanuly looks to continue his rapid ascent through the professional ranks when he takes on the undefeated Danny Dignum in Las Vegas.
Alimkhanuly has been on the fast track to a world title shot since turning pro in 2016 and after producing seven knockouts in 11 fights, the former Olympian has become an avoided name in the middleweight division.
However, Dignum's height and size advantage will provide a different challenge for Alimkhanuly.
Also featuring on the card is former WBO super featherweight champion Jamel Herring who takes on Jamaine Ortiz in a lightweight contest.
