Brooklyn-born Edgar Berlanga makes his long-awaited return to the ring in June, twelve months after his last bout and his first since signing to Matchroom Promotions.
The undefeated American has been touted as a future superstar and will no doubt make waves in the super middleweight division in the coming months and years. He takes on experienced Irishman Jason Quigley who has been in the ring with top operators such as Demetrius Andrade.
32-year-old Quigley will be hoping he can work himself back into title contention after his defeat to Andrade in 2021 when challenging for the WBO world middleweight title. He has stepped up into the super middleweight division and this is his second bout of 2023.

Undefeated American Berlanga is the 1/12 favourite
Berlanga remains undefeated after 20 professional bouts, with 16 knockouts to his name.
His previous three bouts were all scheduled for 10 rounds and all three went the distance with him winning by unanimous decision.
Incredibly, all sixteen of Berlanga's knockouts came in his first sixteen fights and every single stoppage came in the first round. The heavy-hitting American also possesses slick skills and is expected to rise all the way to the top of the sport.
Experienced Irishman Quigley has tasted defeat just twice since turning professional in 2014. The 32-year-old has fought 22 times and knocked out 14 of his opponents.
Quigley challenged Demtrius 'Boo Boo' Andrade for his WBO world super middleweight title in 2021 and this is his second bout since suffering that second round knockout defeat.
A decorated amateur, Quigley looked certain to represent Ireland at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, but opted to turn professional instead.
Heavyweights Adam Kownacki and Joe Cusumano battle it out over 12 rounds in the chief support to the main event. Kownacki enters the ring off the back of three straight defeats while Cusumano is rebuilding after his first-round defeat to Daniel Dubois in 2021 - he has won twice since but is the big outsider.
Undefeated super lightweight Reshat Mati is also in action along with exciting 23-year-old prospect Harley Mederos.
