Also on the card, heavyweight Justis Huni (7-0, 4 KOs) makes his Matchroom debut against Andrew Tabiti (20-1, 16 KOs). The pair were slated to meet in New Orleans in June, but an ankle injury in sparring for the Aussie amateur standout just weeks before the bout robbed forced the bout to be postponed.
