Oleksandr Usyk will combat with 38-year-old Chazz Witherspoon in his first battle at November on Saturday after original opponent Tyrone Spong returned an doping test.
Usyk has not fought because he defended all of four world cruiserweight names against Tony Bellew last year.
Witherspoon has had four days notice for its struggle in Chicago.
I have been in training ready for a major fight, and it will not get bigger than that, Witherspoon said.
I cant wait to confront Usyk. Oleksandr is stepping up to heavyweight – and he is going to find out that it is a game that is different.
I have won my past eight struggles and I really feel that I have been waiting in the wings for a massive opportunity such as this.
Witherspoon is 74th using a record of 38 wins and three losses – on Boxrecs heavyweight ratings – four locations under Spong.
Spong, 34, also competed in boxing prior to winning his first 14 battles as a fighter and spent a lot of his combat career in martial arts.
His negative response came under Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) testing. Vada needs promoters or fighters to pay for testing for the length of a fight build-up, also functions in MMA and boxing. It said Spong was part of its testing programme on 20 September.
Even the Las Vegas-based Vada has made a glowing reputation in boxing and was accountable for evaluations which has resulted in American heavyweight Jarrell Miller and Mexicos SaulCanelo Alvarez receiving teaser for doping offences.
