American Top Team just announced it:

Just confirmed - Yves Edwards will be fighting ElitexXC 160 lb Champ KJ Noons for the belt April 26th!!

Yves is coming off a big KO win over Edson Berto last weekend and is currently riding a 3 fight win streak.

Yves will be back training at the main academy in Coconut Creek, FL. to start preparing for his fight.
We look forward to wroking with Yves and getting him ready to fight for the belt!

This is a good fight for Yves. There's nothing KJ Noons has in his arsenal that Yves hasn't seen before. Not to mention, Yves is a significantly better kickboxer who is able to work a variety of different ranges and angles when exchanging on the outside, whereas the boxer in Noons will be a little more narrowed with his options. As for the ground, I don't think that'll be much of an issue as Yves won't look for it and neither will Noons.
