Darren Till jumps to boxing with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight - ESPN

Former UFC welterweight title contender Darren Till will be the latest to make the jump from MMA to boxing when he steps into the ring for his professional boxing debut against former WBC world middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on the undercard of Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The fight is scheduled for six rounds and will be contested at cruiserweight with a weight limit of 190 pounds.

Till, 31, makes his professional boxing debut after a successful UFC career as both a welterweight and middleweight with an overall MMA record of 18-5-1.

The product of Liverpool, England, challenged Tyron Woodley for the UFC welterweight title in 2018 but fell to a second-round submission loss. After starting his MMA career 17-0-1, Till went 1-5 over his next six fights with losses to Jorge Masvidal, Robert Whittaker and current UFC middleweight champion Dricus du Plessis. The loss to du Plessis in December 2022 was the last time Till fought in the Octagon.

There were rumors of Till heading to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships to challenge Mike Perry but the Englishman shut down the idea of a venture to bare-knuckle fighting, despite fielding offers from the promotion.

«I'm very happy with my opponent,» Till said via statement. «I've been a fan of his father for many years and I've been a fan of Chavez Jr. too — he is a great fighter who I respect, but make no mistake about it, I am coming to knock him out in the first round. I am happy with where I am in life, and I am coming to make a statement on July 20th in Texas.»

Till's boxing debut will come against an opponent whose last name carries significant weight in the sport.
