IBF & WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Artur Beterbiev will face WBO Light Heavyweight titleholder Joe Smith Jr in a title unification bout.

The winner will come of the bout holding three titles with them and would be in prime position to negotiate a big undisputed title fight against Dmitry Bivol. Beterbiev goes in as the favorite with 100% knockout rate in his 17 bouts. Smith is also an experienced contender, but does he have what it takes to stop an unstoppable force like Beterbiev? (Smith has previously lost to Bivol)

On the undercard, Abraham Nova and Robeisy Ramirez clash in an interesting featherweight bout. Bruce Carrington, Jahi Tucker and many other Top Rank prospects will be on the prelims to showcase their talent.
