John Gotti III will look to bounce back from his first professional loss next month.

The 28-year-old faces Jared Chauvin at Classic Entertainment & Sports 62, the promotion announced Friday. The event takes place April 30 at Caribe Royale in Orlando, Fla., and will stream on UFC Fight Pass.

After a perfect 5-0 start to his pro career, Gotti III dropped a unanimous decision to Nick Alley in the main event of CES 61 in October. The grandson of infamous mob boss John Gotti won his first four fights via first-round KO and was tested for the first time by Marcos Lloreda at CES 60 en route to a unanimous decision in January 2020.

Chauvin is looking to snap a two-fight skid in his CES debut. The Michigan native was victorious in his first three pro appearances for regional promotion Carlos Llinas International Productions, which includes a second-round stoppage win in April 2019.

CES 62 will also feature past Contender Series competitor Dinis Paiva as he faces American Top Team’s Josh Smith.
