Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk are set to face off in a massive pay-per-view heavyweight title clash next weekend.
Joshua was finally set to face his British rival Tyson Fury in a landmark unification fight this summer.
But Fury was ordered to pull out of that fight and take on Deontay Wilder in their trilogy clash, meaning Joshua had to look elsewhere.
He will now be back in the spotlight later this month to take on dangerous WBO mandatory challenger Usyk.
“The Cat” has won all of his 18 pro fights to date and defeated Derek Chisora last October.
He will certainly be a huge test for AJ in what should be an exciting fight.

Joshua v Usyk: What was said?
Tony Bellew insists Joshua will NEVER face a better boxer in his career than Usyk.
“He will be the best boxer Anthony Joshua faces in his career,” Bellew told talkSPORT.
“When it comes to pure, natural boxing, Oleksandr Usyk is the most natural boxer Anthony Joshua has ever faced.
“He’s amazing at what he does. Considering that, he’s not a real heavyweight.
“Everyone keep going, yes he’s a cruiserweight, but he’s the greatest cruiserweight who ever put on gloves.
“So he comes with amazing skills, but I just think weight divisions exist in boxing for a reason.
“Come on rounds seven, eight and nine, he’s going to find out why he’s not a real heavyweight. I think Anthony Joshua’s speed, power and persistence will be what catches up with Oleksandr Usyk.
“I wish he would stop fighting with my friends because I want to support him!” I am a big admirer of him and I respect the boy so much, but he keeps fighting with my friends so I can’t support him.
