LEE HASKINS will make the first defence of his IBF world bantamweight title against Ivan Morales at the Cardiff Ice Rink on May 14.

Morales, younger brother of Mexican legend Erik Morales, is 29-1(17) and handled by Golden Boy Promotions. His sole pro defeat came last year when Edgar Jimenez edged him out over 10 rounds.

Haskins has not fought since stopping Ryosuke Iwasa last June. He was set to fight then-IBF king Randy Caballero in September, but inherited the title after Caballero failed to make weight for the contest.
