J’Leon Love has the opportunity to enhance his reputation when the super-middleweight contender battles Peter Quillin on the Andre Berto v Devon Alexander undercard.
The 30-year-old Love enters this fight unbeaten in his last seven contests after most recently defeating Jaime Barboza in May.
The Michigan-native who now trains and lives in Las Vegas had previously defeated a slew of contenders and will look to move closer to a world title shot with a victory over Quillin on August 4.
“I think this is a really good matchup,” said Love.
“Peter Quillin is a very talented fighter and a former world champion who is always in great shape.
“He’s someone you have to train very hard for and that you definitely cannot take lightly.
“I’m just grateful for the opportunity to fight a spectacular fighter like him. We’ll put on a great fight.”
Quillin v Love is part of a packed night of action at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, topped by that long-awaited welterweight clash featuring two former world title holders.
