Former world champion Antonio Tarver (31-6-1, 22 KOs) will return to the ring for the first time since August of 2015, when he fought to a twelve round split draw with Steve Cunningham.
Tarver's opponent will be another boxer coming off a layoff - although not as long - heavyweight contender Travis Kauffman (31-2, 23 KOs). Kauffman saw action in March of 2017 when he lost a twelve round majority decision to Amir Mansour.
The contest took will take on June 10, as part of a special Sunday card at the Pioneer Event Center in Lancaster, California. The likely outlet handling television duties will be Fox Sports 1.
Some of the fighters being mentioned for the undercard include prospect Joey Spencer, cruiserweight Michael Hunter, and heavyweight contender Gerald Washington.
Spencer (2-0, 2 KOs), 18 and a highly regarded amateur, turned pro in February and then won again in April.
Washington (18-2-1, 12 KOs) will be fighting for the first time since his TKO loss to Jarrell Miller in July 2017.
And Hunter (13-1, 8 KOs), now back at heavyweight, last fought in April when he picked up a quick decision win over Terrell Woods.
Tarver, who is 49-years-old, has been very inactive in the last few years.
Since 2009, Tarver has only averaged one fight per year. There have also been some drug testing issues.
Tarver tested positive for a banned anabolic steroid in his pre-fight urine sample prior to his 2012 fight with Lateef Kayode, and the contest was changed to a no-decision.
And Tarver tested positive for a banned substance pre-fight urine test for the Cunningham bout, but that contest remained as a draw.
Tarver was a major player in the light heavyweight division for several years - especially after his three wins over Roy Jones Jr.
But after suffering back to back defeats to Chad Dawson in 2008-2009, he came back in 2010 in the heavyweight division.
He dropped down to cruiserweight from 2011 to 2012, but went back up to heavyweight in 2013.
