In his win over Callum Smith in December, he pummeled the British fighter, but was never able to put him away.

Yildirim, meanwhile, has gone the distance in three of his last five fights. One ended when his opponent, Jose Antonio Rodriguez, retired after the first round. The other was in his last fight against Anthony Dirrell. In that fight, he lost a split technical decision after the ring doctor stopped the action in the 10th round due to a deep cut over the left eye of Dirrell after the boxers bumped heads, causing the gash. At the time of the stoppage, Dirrell was ahead on two of the three cards.
