Both fighters are unbeaten and the bout will form part of the undercard for Abner Mares' WBC super-bantamweight title defence at the Staples Center.
The fight will be Cleverly's fourth defence of his title and the first outside of the United Kingdom with the 25-year-old looking forward to establishing a name for himself in the United States.
"I'm absolutely delighted for the opportunity, I'm really look forward to it," he said.
"It is a great opportunity for me to make the next step in my career.
"The timing is perfect, I think I have made a few defences of my title and now it is time for me to go over to the States and get some exposure and make a statement."
