The WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight belts are on the line as Anthony Joshua faces another mandatory opponent.
Joshua was last in action in December 2020 in a successful defence of his three belts against Kubrat Pulev, and has been mandated to face Ukrainian former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.
Usyk's last bout came against Derek Chisora, and he brings an undefeated record into the match-up. Joshua's only defeat came against Andy Ruiz in 2019 before winning back his belts later in the year.
Whoever wins on Saturday will hopes and perhaps even expect to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder for the chance to become undisputed heavyweight champion.
