This will be Washington's first attempt at winning a world title.
The broadcast will also feature a 154-lb world title eliminator between once beaten Tony Harrison and undefeated prospect Jarrett Hurd.
The fights will be held at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, and will be broadcast live on Fox at 8pm ET / 5pm PT as part of the Premier Boxing Champions series.
