The two will meet in the four-round heavyweight main event of a Gary Shaw Productions and Tony Holden Promotions night of boxing.
Wade lost his debut in January of this year but will make history to win in his second fight.
“Just like in MMA, Kimbo Slice is walking around with a bullseye on his back.
“His opponents know they can make themselves known to the world if they can take him out,” said Jared Shaw, Team Kimbo Promotional Advisor.
“To Kimbo, it’s a pro boxing debut. To James Wade, this is a world championship fight.”
