Dubois, who sports a 9-0 record as a pro, has already won a number of smaller titles, including the BBBofC Southern Area and English heavyweight titles. This will be the second time Dubois fights a former title challenger as he defeated Kevin Johnson in his last fight back in October. Dubois and Cojanu were supposed to fight last December but Dubois withdrew from the bout due to illness.
Cojanu returns to the United Kingdom for the second consecutive fight, looking to end his three-fight losing streak which started in 2017. Cojanu unsuccessfully challenged for the WBO heavyweight title in May 2017 and then lost fights to Luis Ortiz and Nathan Gorman.
Mucino will make her second world title defense since winning the title this past February. Mucino, a three-time world champion, will be traveling to the United Kingdom for the first time in her career and it will be the second time she fights outside her native country of Mexico.
Adams is a two-time Olympic gold medalist, winning the medals in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. Adams turned pro in 2017, winning all five of her fights in the paid ranks and will challenge for her first world title.
Also announced for the card is a fight for the British middleweight title. Liam Williams will defend the title against Joe Mullender and it will be Williams' first title defense. Mullender is a former English middleweight champion, having not lost a fight since 2016.
