Anthony and Andre Dirrell will both return to action in an April 29 doubleheader on Spike, the second PBC card on the network in the month of April. The brothers will both fight 10-round bouts against gatekeeper opponents at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.

Former WBC titleholder Anthony (28-1-1, 22 KO) will take on Caleb Truax (26-2-2, 16 KO), while Andre (24-2, 16 KO) will face Blake Caparello (22-1-1, 6 KO).

Anthony, 31, lost his WBC belt to Badou Jack in April of last year, and returned to beat Marco Antonio Rubio on September 6. The 32-year-old Andre fought once in 2015, losing to James DeGale by decision in a vacant IBF title fight on May 23 in Boston.

Truax, 32, went 0-1 last year, losing to Daniel Jacobs in April, and returned to the ring on February 20 this year, beating Melvin Betancourt via fourth round TKO in Minnesota. Australia's Caparello, 29, has won three straight fights since a TKO-2 loss to Sergey Kovalev on HBO in 2014. He moved down to super middleweight last year, beating Affif Belghecham and Luke Sharp.
