Anthony Joshua will be taking on Oleksandr Usyk in a heavyweight clash on Saturday night, with three of AJ’s belts up for grabs. All of the action will be available to watch live on your mobile, tablet or laptop.
Joshua has won 24 of his 25 professional fights, with 22 of them coming by knockout.
His only defeat, against Andy Ruiz Jr, was avenged just six months later.
The Brit was expected to fight against Tyson Fury, in a match that would be a huge unification fight.
But, Fury was instead forced to complete a trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian Usyk has won all 18 of his previous matches, including against Tony Bellew and Dereck Chisora.
He unified the cruiserweight division before moving up to heavyweight, winning both of his fights so far in the division.
Joshua was ordered to defend his WBO title against Usyk after the collapse in talks with Tyson Fury’s camp.
Usyk will now compete for his first heavyweight title at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Joshua, with AJ hoping not to slip up.
