BoxRec reports that Jarrett Hurd and Joe Joyce have opponents for their December 1st appearances on the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury undercard.

Welborn (24-6, 7 KO) was last seen winning his second consecutive split decision over Tommy Langford, defending the British middleweight title he’d taken from Langford the first time around. He hasn’t fought at 154 since losing a decision to Craig Cunningham in 2016.

His losses include Frankie Gavin, Liam Smith, and Matthew Macklin.

Hanks (23-2, 15 KO), whom BoxRec has ranked 119th among heavyweights, is 2-0 since a three-year layoff following consecutive losses to Andy Ruiz Jr. and Derric Rossy. He is one of only three people Rossy has beaten in his last 10 fights.

The event will also feature a strawweight title fight between Mark Anthony Barriga (9-0, 1 KO) and Carlos Licona (13-0, 2 KO) for the IBF belt Hiroto Kyoguchi vacated in his move to 108 pounds.
