The lightweight division moves one step closer to a potential unificaton clash as Devin Haney defends his WBC belt against mandatory challenger Joseph 'JoJo' Diaz tonight.
The fight will be shown on DAZN around the world (except Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Macedonia), and it lays the groundwork for a clash with George Kambosos Jr.
The WBA, WBO, IBF and WBC 'franchise' champion defeated Teofimo Lopez last weekend in New York and there seems little appetite for a rematch.
That means the path is clear for Haney to clear up any confusion over who the true WBC belt holder is, and Kambosos will get a crack at becoming undisputed at 135lbs.
Diaz, meanwhile, will be aiming to establish himself as a two-division champion after moving up from the super featherweight division.
In addition to the main event, there are some big names on the undercard including Croatian heavyweight Filip Hrgovic and undisputed women's welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill who defends her four world titles against Victoria Bustos.
