Radzhab Butaev and Eimantas Stanionis will step into the ring on April 16 to dispute the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight championship held by the former.

The bout will be part of the Premier Boxing Champions evening, which will feature Yordenis Ugas and Errol Spence Jr. unifying their championships.

Butaev comes from defeating Jamal James on October 30 to take his crown and to get ready for his next fight, against Stanionis. The Russian champion will make another appearance in the United States, where he has been making a name for himself and is looking to face the best in the division.

However, Lithuanian Stanionis will not be an easy opponent. He is one of the strongest young fighters in the division and has the same intentions of making it to the top. The 27-year-old fighter has already defeated opponents like Justin DeLoach and Thomas Dulorme, so he is a danger in this showdown.

Butaev comes in with a record of 14 wins, no losses and 11 knockouts, while Stanionis has 13 wins and 9 knockouts.
