Joe Joyce will put his title hopes and unbeaten record on the line this weekend in his toughest test yet, as the Team GB Olympian takes on Joseph Parker.
Joyce, who won silver at the 2016 Games in Rio and turned 37 this week, is 14-0 as a professional with 13 knockouts to his name.
Meanwhile, New Zealand heavyweight Parker (30-2, 21 KOs) is also in the hunt for a world title, with the winner of Saturday’s main event set to emerge with the interim WBO belt – Parker having previously held the official version of gold.
In the co-main event, Amanda Serrano defends her featherweight titles against Sarah Mahfoud while looking to regain her momentum after losing a split decision to undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor earlier this year. A Serrano victory should line up the Puerto Rican for another clash with Taylor.
Here’s everything you need to know.
