Lee Haskins will make his American debut when he challenges IBF world bantamweight champion Randy Caballero.
The 32-year-old Haskins (32-3-KO14) won the interim belt when he recorded a sixth-round stoppage of Japan's Ryosuke Iwasa in June and will now take on Californian Caballero (22-0-KO13) in Las Vegas on November 21.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge of boxing in America," said Haskins, who hails from Bristol.
"I know this is a fight I can win. British fighters like James DeGale, Kell Brook and Amir Khan have proved that you can beat top American fighters stateside and I look forward to adding myself to that exclusive list.
After my last performance over Iwasa, who a lot of people said would beat me, I think the sky's the limit.
"After my last performance over Iwasa, who a lot of people said would beat me, I think the sky's the limit," he added. "Caballero is coming off an injury and 12 months of inactivity, against me that is a big mistake.
"Now I just want to have that date and venue finalised so I can focus 100% on beating Caballero."
