Hrgović, the Rio 2016 Olympic Bronze Medallist and current WBC International Champion, will be boxing in his hometown for a second time following his knockout win over Amir Mansour in September at the Arena Zagreb.

Hrgović will look to continue his World title charge but can expect tough competition from Johnson, a former World title challenger, who has previously shared the ring with Vitali Klitschko, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
