Saudi Arabia, alongside Matchroom Boxing, Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank, is expected to stage a Dmitry Bivol-Artur Beterbiev undisputed light heavyweight title fight on June 1 with 5 ‘Matchroom vs Queensberry’ fights on the undercard.

Although Hrgovic is technically a free agent, his fight with Dubois is expected to land on the 5 vs 5 as Matchroom’s selection of Heavyweights isn’t vast and the Croatian has fought the majority of his career with Matchroom.

Dubois and Hrgovic both had their last fights on the same card, a ‘Day Of Reckoning’ show on December 23 in Saudi Arabia where Dubois scored a final round stoppage against Jarrell Miller whilst Hrgovic easily dispatched Mark De Mori in the opening stanza.
