Former UFC heavyweight champion and recent WAMMA heavyweight title challenger Andrei Arlovski will make his professional boxing debut on April 11th on the undercard of Paul Williams vs. Winky Wright in Las Vegas.

Ring Talk reported the news on Monday and added that this will not be Arlovski’s only foray into the sport, with famed coach and Arlovski trainer Freddie Roach planning on having the “Pitbull” fight “half a dozen fights and then have him challenge somebody of note”.

Arlovski, who will meet an opponent to be announced in the April bout, challenged top heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko for the WAMMA belt in January at Affliction: Day of Reckoning. Despite early success, a missed flying knee allowed Emelianenko to connect with an overhand right that sent the challenger crashing to the canvas, immediately halting the matchup.
