Fail has been waiting to discover his opponent and it has been announced he will take on Londoner Dujon, who has won all four of his professional fights to date.

His most recent success was a points win over Jordan Grannum, and prior to that the 27-year-old had enjoyed three other points successes over Paul Cummings, Duane Green and Victor Edagha.

It is a tricky looking contest for super welterweight Fail, with the fight scheduled to be over six three-minute rounds at the home of Bolton Wanderers FC, the University of Bolton Stadium.

Like Far Cotton ABC man Fail, Dujon was a national champion as an amateur, as well as a London champion, boxing out of the West Ham Amateur Boxing Club.

"I am excited, because it is something I have wanted to do since I walked into the boxing gym when I was 11 years old," said Fail ahead of his professional debut.

"I think the nerves will kick in when I am there, but right now I am excited. It is a good show, and I am really looking forward to it."

Fail takes on Dujon as part of the undercard of the WBO European welterweight title fight between Lewis Crocker and Deniz Ilbay, with the #MTKFightNight being broadcast live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV.

Elsewhere on the bill, Gary Cully takes on Viktor Kotochigov for the vacant WBO European lightweight title, Isaac Lowe returns, Sahir Iqbal is back in action, Mace Ruegg meets Johnson Tellez, and Jordan Reynolds makes his professional debut against Robbie Chapman.

Chapman was last seen in the ring in September, when he lost to Carl Fail's twin brother Ben, who claimed his debut professional win in that encounter.
