American heavyweight Nkosi Solomon will make his professional debut on the undercard for Artur Beterbiev's world title fight with Callum Johnson in Chicago.

The 23-year-old from Brooklyn will join the paid ranks on the same bill as Beterbiev's IBF light-heavyweight title fight with Johnson on the Matchroom USA bill at the Wintrust Arena on October 6, live on Sky Sports.

Johnson: Bring on 'Beast' Beterbiev

Callum Johnson has branded Artur Beterbiev a 'beast', but insists his knockout power can topple the fearsome IBF light-heavyweight king.

Solomon has already been hailed as a future star by promoter Eddie Hearn and the former Team USA fighter has vowed to become a dominant champion in the top division.

"My dream is right in front of me, right there, I just have to grab it," said Solomon. "Nkosi Solomon is the only and greatest challenge I have to overcome when it comes to this boxing thing.

"I'm conquering my mind because once I do that, nobody, and I mean nobody in this world, can stop me.
