Foster picked up the British title in his tenth fight, when he defeated Josh Wale by unanimous decision to win the vacant belt. Foster then was given the opportunity to add more gold to his mantle as he fought Commonwealth champion Ashley Lane next. The fight put Foster's name on the map as he went to war with Lane, and managed to score a 12th round knockout to add the Commonwealth strap to his arsenal.
Foster came up against bright prospect Lucien Reid next in defence of his titles. Foster and Reid battled to a draw in an exciting fight which saw both men getting cut, leading to many calls for a rematch. The rematch came next, and Foster left no question marks, as he stopped Reid in the sixth round.
Two fights later, Foster looked to add more gold as he took on European champion Jason Cunningham. Foster was unfortunately dealt the first loss of his career, as he lost via unanimous decision.
Baluta spent most of his career fighting in Spain, and after 14 fights, he had reached a record of 12-2. Baluta was then called up to fight in Caesars Palace, Dubai, where he was fighting former IBF world champion TJ Doheny. Baluta was a heavy underdog coming into the Doheny bout, but made a mockery of the bookies as he defeated the former world champion by unanimous decision.
Baluta was then drafted in to face former Olympian David Oliver Joyce. Joyce was coming off the back of a victory over Lee Haskins, and was trying to head towards world level. However, Baluta put a firm stop on Joyce's aspirations, as Baluta knocked Joyce out in three rounds.
Last time out, Baluta was beaten by unanimous decision by Mick Conlan. With both Foster and Baluta coming in off the back of losses, it sets up an exciting fight as both will be desperate to no add another loss to their records.
The undercard sees the return of popular prospect Andrew Cain, as he defends his WBC Silver internaional title against Luis Moreno. Cain impressed last time out as he produced an impressive first round knockout of Pablo Ariel Gomez to pick up his title.
The Frankham brothers return as they both look to extend their records to 6-0, as Charles takes on Sandeep Singh Bhatti over six rounds, and Joshua takes on Des Newton over four. Micky Burke Jr looks to also move to 6-0, as he battles it out with Ivica Gogosevic over six rounds.
Raven Chapman fights for the first time under the Queensberry Promotions banner, as she looks to move to 3-0 against Gabriella Mezei. Adan Mohamed will look to go to 4-0 as he takes on Stefan Nicolae.
Finally, Sean Noakes will make his professional debut against Naeem Ali. Noakes will be joining his brother Sam under the Queensberry Promotions banner.
