Hebert Conceicao will make his professional debut against a fighter whose wins have all been by knockout.
The Olympic gold medallist faces Abdelghani Saber over six rounds at Caesers Palace in Dubai, on Saturday night.
Saber, from Egypt, has eight wins on his record and all have been stoppages, but Conceicao will be looking to make a statement as he begins his pro journey, under the Probellum banner.
The Brazilian middleweight hero is due to be in the ring at around 10pm local time (3pm in Brasilia).
Saber has previously fought Germany’s world ranked Abass Baraou.
