Speaking ahead of the fight, the former Love Island star said: “It is unbelievable to get the chance to go over to the USA to fight and put on a show.
“I am grateful for the opportunity and I am definitely going to leave my mark on the American fans.
“American fans can, as always with me, expect a big dirty knockout. That is what I say and that is what I try to bring.
“I want to put on a masterclass performance and show levels again and show how much I am improving.
“It is another step on my journey to World Titles.”
Rising star Dubois, meanwhile, will look to back up his June win over Bogdan Dinu when he faces American Joe Cusumano.
Upon the announcement, WBA interim heavyweight champion Dubois, 23, said: “I am grateful for the opportunity to put on an explosive performance in front of a US audience and show them who the future Heavyweight Champion of the World is going to be.
I will make sure it is a name they won’t forget in a hurry
“I am ready now to push on and build on the WBA interim title I won in my last fight.
“I am thrilled to take the show on the road and look to win the American public over. I am told the American public love heavyweight boxing, so it is time to introduce them to Daniel Dubois.
“I will make sure it is a name they won’t forget in a hurry.”
Promoter Frank Warren is excited to showcase two of his young stars in front of a US audience.
He said: “This represents a wonderful opportunity for Daniel and Tommy to increase their recognition in the US.
“I believe Daniel is the best young heavyweight in world boxing and that Tommy is primed to prove his boxing ability is of a level befitting his surname.
