Middlesbrough's Simon Vallily will make his professional debut in a four-round cruiserweight contest at London's York Hall on Thursday, March 21.

Vallily, who won a Commonwealth Games gold medal in New Delhi in 2010, made the decision to turn professional after failing to secure a place on the British squad for last year's Olympics.

The former ABA super-heavyweight champion will make his debut on the undercard of Billy-Joe Saunders' defence of his British and Commonwealth middleweight titles against Matthew Hall.
