The biggest contest on Saturday night takes place in New York, where Deontay Wilder defends his WBC world heavyweight title against Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Center.
It will be the Bronze Bomber’s first contest since his controversial split decision draw against Tyson Fury in December and he’ll be looking to send out a statement to the rest of the division.
Much of the talk in the build up to the fight has surrounded Wilder’s sickening comments that he is hoping to ‘get a body’ on his record, most boxing fans around the world are therefore in Breazeale’s corner for this one.
Elsewhere Billy Joe Saunders has the luxury of fighting for the WBO world super middleweight title as he headlines Queensbury Promotions’ show at Stevenage FC.
Standing in his way is Shefat Isufi, who hasn’t lost since 2015.
The pair engaged in a fiery face off on Friday, when Saunders slapped his opponent after a tense head-to-head.
Heavyweight Joe Joyce is fighting on the undercard against Alexander Ustinov.
In an interview with Express Sport earlier this week, he revealed his desire to earn a shot at Wilder or Anthony Joshua.
The World Boxing Super Series semi-finals are also taking place in Glasgow at the SSE Hydrow meaning it should be a memorable night of action.
Josh Taylor goes up against Ivan Branchyk looking to make the home advantage count.
Pound-for-pound great Naoya Inoue is also in action, taking on Emmanuel Rodriguez.
Here’s how you can watch the action…
