Liam Williams is confident he can upset the odds tonight when he takes on unbeaten world champion Demetrius Andrade.
The Welshman has waited patiently for a shot at a world title and will hope to catch Andrade on an off night.
The American is one of the most skilful fighters on the planet and has won each of his 19 fights, but has not always looked his best in recent bouts.
Willams himself has lost only to Liam Smith in back-to-back fights but has looked much-improved since stepping up from light-middleweight.
Here is everything you need to know about tonight's fights…
What time is the fight on?
The main event will start at around 11pm UK time despite the fight taking place in the US. The fights will begin three hours earlier, at 8pm UK time.

“It is a massive opportunity for me, and I really can’t wait to get my chance on Saturday night to prove I’m the best at 160lbs. I’m very excited and can’t wait to get my hands on him this Saturday.
“Not to get it twisted, I do respect him, he’s a great fighter and obviously three-time world champion in two different weight divisions, what’s not to respect?
"I’d be a bit of a fool to not think he’s any good wouldn’t I, but I see things, weaknesses that I can exploit, I’m fully confident I’m going to do that Saturday night and not just going to win but win in devastating fashion."
“It’s going to be a great showing, I’m ready, I’m going to turn up. If Williams is going to bring the fight that we all want to see, then I’m all for it. There’s nothing wrong with it, I’m here, I signed and I’m here to show the people what they want to see.
“Nobody is going to know until the bell rings at the end of the day. I don’t sit here and say that Williams is or isn’t going to bring the fight. Once we get in there and if he does then we’ll see, if he doesn’t then he doesn’t. We all know I’m going to bring the fight.
"At the end of the day I train hard and smarter every single day, I’ve been doing this a very long time. I’ve fought all of them already, there’s nothing new I’ve seen from Williams. Okay he’s tough and bringing it forward, alright well at the end of the day I’m going to have the answers for whatever he brings forward.
“I’m going to be glad to sit back and watch the beautiful boxing match that I put on after I’ve beat him. I’ll watch and say hey you’ve done a great job banging a guy that came to fight.
