But he'll be hoping for better this time out as he steps back into the firing line against Mike Jackson.

Current middleweight champ Robert Whittaker and former interim title challenger Yoel Romero serve as the main event - but the fight is now a non-title catchweight bout after Romero failed to make weight at Friday's weigh-in.
