WBC world super featherweight champion O'Shaquie Foster will face a tough test in the first defence of his world title when he travels to Mexico to face Eduardo Hernandez. 

Foster is no stranger to facing Mexican opponents after beating Rey Vargas in February to land the vacant WBC 130lb title, and he will now look to do the same come October 28. 

Hernandez however is a dangerous threat. He will be relishing the opportunity to challenge for a world title on home turf and comes into this fight on a ferocious run of form with six back-to-back knockout wins.
