In his first professional fight since retiring last year, the former two-time world champion, Indian hunter Neeraj will replace Goyat for the game, which was badly injured in a recent car accident.

The last fight of Dib was in April, with a stylish victory against Thailand Surachet Tongmala.

But this fight will be different, with Dib jumping up two weight classes just two weeks prior to the clash.

This will bring the 33 year old into the ring with 10 kg heavier than his usual, in an empire where he has never fought before.

Dib took the social media to announce his calling.

& # 39; In life, you get a limited number of opportunities to do something monumental, and like the largest in any industry, it will tell you when an opportunity comes up for you. & # 39; Dib posted.

& # 39; This is my real life Rocky Moment. & # 39;

The competition takes place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the Pearl Belt, a special belt for the competition.

The last high-profile opponent of Dib plays the end of his career and loses a unanimous decision to the American Tevin Farmer in August last year, but his opponent Khan will not take him lightly.
