The fights will be live streamed on DAZN on May 25.
Michael Hunter (16-1, 11KOs) of US Olympian and rising heavyweight will face off against Fabio Maldonado (26-2, 25KOs) a former UFC and mixed martial arts fighter from Brazil. The heavyweight showcase will be set for 10-rounds.
Hunter who weighed in at 215 pounds is one of the smaller heavyweights in the division but he feels his heart and boxing ability will help him carve his way to a world title shot against the giant champions.
Undefeated Croatian Heavyweight star Filip Hrgovic (7-0 5 KOs) won the Bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio, tonight he will take on Gregory Corbin (15-1 9 KOs).
Devin Haney (21-0 13 KOs) isn’t older enough to drink but at 20 he has more fights than most boxers his age. A talented amateur boxer from the San Francisco Bay Area, he chose to turn professional instead of going to the Olympic games.
He signed a promotional pact with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom boxing after years of being courted by various powerhouse promotional suits.
