James Degale travels to Quebec on November 28th for the first defence of his IBF World Super Middleweight belt against Lucian Bute.
Bute, now 35, will be aiming to recapture his old title after defeat to fellow Brit Carl Froch in May 2012.
Degale, who impressively beat Andre Dirrell in Chicago back in May has recently inked a deal with renowned promoter Al Haymon, who no doubt has had strong influence over this matchup.
The Romanian born Canadian hasn't made 168lbs since the devastating defeat at the hands of the retired Froch.
Harlesden's favourite southpaw has looked electrifying since recent surgery cleared up several long standing injuries.
It's an intriguing contest. 'Chunky' will have one eye on big unification clashes whilst defeat for Bute would edge him closer to retirement.
A rematch with George Groves has been dismissed following The Saint's recent defeat to Badou Jack whereas WBA Title holder Fedor Chudinov has expressed an interest in returning to London to fight.
