Rounding out the main card is an odd selection of mid-tier featherweights as Phan and Hettes are set to square off.
Phan, 28, is coming off the biggest win of his career as he set the record straight in a decision win over Leonard Garcia after being robbed by the judges in their first meeting last year.
