Stevenson dominantly outpointed the highly rated Puerto Rico’s Christopher Diaz (24-2, 16 KOs) in his last outing, which was a 10 - rounder on the Terence Crawford-Amir Khan undercard April 20 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Socarras (22-0-3, 14 KOs) scored a fifth round technical  knockout win over Jesus  Martinez (25-8, 12 KOs), just recently on May 10th in Florida. But despite his extended period as a professional (turned pro in 2011), Stevenson will be the biggest opponent of his career.

The fight will be the main event of a double header. The second bout features Chicago's Joshua Greer and Russia’s Nikolai Potapov, who both meet in a an IBF bantamweight eliminator.
