A light heavyweight matchup which doesn’t figure to go the distance has been added to International Fight Week.

Steve Bosse will take on Jared Cannonier at the TUF 25 Finale card at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on July 7. French Canadian outlet RDS initially reported the bout on Tuesday.

Bosse, a former minor league hockey enforcer from Quebec, carries a 12-2 record into the fight. Ten of his 12 pro victories are by knockout or TKO, as are both of his losses. He’s on a two-bout win streak and took Fight of the Night honors for his decision win over Sean O’Connell last June 28 in Ottawa in his last fight.

Alaska’s Cannonier (9-2), meanwhile, has won two out of his past three fights. In his last bout, Cannonier took a major jump up in competition and went the distance with Glover Teixeira before losing a unanimous decision. Seven of Cannonier’s nine wins are via finish.
