Floyd Schofield will at least maintain his desired in-ring activity level.

A quick turnaround is in store for the unbeaten lightweight, who revealed that he will return to the ring on a March 16 DAZN show from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. An opponent was not yet confirmed for the fight, which will land on the undercard of the already announced William Zepeda-Maxi Hughes WBA/IBF lightweight dual title eliminator.

“Another day, another dollar, “Schofield posted on social media. “This is going to be a great fight. [T]he opponent will be announced next week.”

Schofield (16-0, 12KOs) fought four times in a productive 2023 campaign. The most recent win for the 21-year-old prospect came in a first-round knockout of Mexico’s Ricardo Lopez last December 2 at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The bout was the second straight in his home state; the Austin-based prospect fought much closer to home in a ten-round decision win over Lydell Rhodes last July 8 in San Antonio. That same card saw former IBF junior lightweight titlist Joseph ‘JoJo’ Diaz return to the win column in an undercard bout.

Significant post-fight talk surfaced of a potential Schofield-Diaz clash at some point in the future. The matchup seems a bit more long-term than expected. Diaz is due to headline a February 15 Golden Boy Fight Nights on DAZN show versus Jesus ‘Rocky’ Perez from The Commerce Casino & Hotel in Commerce, California.

Schofield, Diaz and Zepeda are all promoted by Golden Boy Promotions. Schofield aspires to fight both, though obviously neither fight will happen next. He is nevertheless looking forward to putting on a show and perhaps build momentum for a fight versus either one sometime this year.

“This is going to be a great one,” vowed Schofield. “[Let’s] Go… Time for War.”
