Former champion Anthony Dirrell (32-1-1, 24 KO) will face big contender Avni Yildirim (21-1, 12 KO) on the 23rd of February for the Vacant WBC Super Middleweight title, live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1)

Dirrell was initially scheduled to face unbeaten David Benavides for the WBC belt but Benavides failed a drug test and was suspended and stripped of the title by the sanctioning body.

The 27 year old Yildirim was beaten by Chris Eubank Jr in Oct. 2017, his only loss and has bounced back to win five in a row to get this Championship spot. Dirrell on the other hand is coming from 10-round decision win over Abraham Han  in El Pasco.
