Anthony Joshua-managed Super-Welterweight talent Souleymane Cissokho will kick off the action at Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday June 1 when he takes on Mexico’s Vladimir Hernandez on his first outing in the US.

One of the great hopes for French boxing, Cissokho won bronze at the 2016 Rio Games at 69kg before joining the professional ranks in 2017 where he is now undefeated in eight fights, with six of those victories coming by way of knockout.

Cissokho teams up with Joshua’s 258 Management as he looks to propel his name into the World mix at 154lbs and will be out to impress in his first fight under the unified Heavyweight champion’s banner.

“I am very happy to be making my US debut in such an iconic venue,” said Cissokho. “It is a massive fight card and so to be a part of it is something special for me. 258 Management offer a refreshing new approach to management. It’s not only about boxing but everything in life that goes with it. I recognise myself in a lot of the values they have, the team spirit, hard work, discipline, dedication and staying humble. I am looking forward to getting started on June 1.”
