Fans looking to watch the blockbuster fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are warned about the use of illegal live streams.
The heavyweight duo are facing off for the WBC crown once more in a rematch following their eventful draw in December 2018.
Despite being knocked to the deck in the final round, Fury jumped to his feet before the 10-count and was able to get to the end of the fight, securing a draw in the process.
BT Sport Box Office will be showing the fight, which takes place in Las Vegas, for viewers who are in the UK. It will cost £24.95.
The main event is due to start at approximately 4:30am.

The fight can still be live streamed on official channels, should you purchase the fight for the fee. If you purchase online, you can watch through the website by logging on.
Boxing fans, however, are once again warned that they should not watch the action on illegal streams, as they could be damaging to your computers.
It is not unusual for websites to ask for small payments to watch the fights, through the likes of PayPal, but there is no guarantee of a decent stream, while they also risk being taken off-air for copyright infringement.
Unofficial streaming sites also leave a worry of creating malware and other computer virus problems, should adequate anti-virus protection not be in place.
A big warning has also been sent to fans who look to use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to personally stream the action to their followers and friends.
Two years ago, Yusuf Mohammed of Bristol was fined £16,000 after showcasing Sky Sports pay-per-view event on a live stream on his social media channels.
Last year, Scarborough-based Craig Foster was slapped with a whopping £85,000 fine after the coverage he bought of the Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko fight was shared on Facebook.
He claimed that a friend streamed the footage onto his Facebook page, with the broadcast being seen by around 4,250 people.
But Foster was the man who was charged by the court as he was the man who paid for the Sky Sports Box Office coverage.
Sky used a watermark that was shown on screen to track down Mr Foster.

"I’d paid for the boxing, it wasn’t like I was making any money," Foster told the Mirror at the time.
"My iPad was signed in to my Facebook account and my friend just started streaming the fight.
“I didn’t think anything of it, then a few days later they cut my subscription.
“They’re demanding the names and addresses of all my mates who were round that night but I’m not going to give them up. I said I'd take the rap.”
