James, a Minneapolis native, is ranked number three in the welterweight division by the World Boxing Association; his opponent has not been named.
Truax will face Fabiano “Pit Bull” Pena of Brazil.
A win for Truax would give him a chance to become a two-time world champion.
The fight will be televised on FS1.
