It will be only his third fight in his professional career after defeating Stefan Slavchev and Adrian Dimas Garzon.
The 30 year old could be fast tracked to a EBU European title fight if he wins the bout.
He turned professional after competing with team Ireland at the Olympic Games in Rio last year.
