Tony Jeffries will trade Sunderland for Los Angeles as he continues his recovery from hand surgery.
The Olympic bronze medalist had operations on both his hands in October last year and has been away from the ring since.
On returning to LA he will undergo a rigorous rehab schedule as he aims to continue the successful start he has made to his professional career.
Jeffries is unbeaten since turning professional three years ago with a record of nine wins and one draw.
His last bout was a victory by a points decision against Paul Morby in September, and he hopes to be fighting again May.
