Deontay Wilder will take on Dominic Breazeale in New York City this weekend and there’s a stacked undercard for the big bout.
The Bronze Bomber will put his WBC heavyweight title on the line for the ninth time.
The fight will take place at Barclays Center in the Big Apple in the early hours of Sunday, May 19 UK time.
It will be Wilder’s first bout since his incredible draw with Tyson Fury last year and could lead to a must-wanted blockbuster showdown with Anthony Joshua.
But before that, the crowds of NYC and fans around the world will be able to enjoy another feast of boxing.

What the fighters have said
Deontay Wilder: “Believe me right now, this is the truth. This is going to be an early night for me.
“The [UK fans] can set their alarms to get up and I promise that they’ll be back in bed in no time because an early knockout is coming. I can just feel it.
“This guy has wanted this fight for so long now, but once that first bell goes, he’s going to see what every other heavyweight who has shared the ring with me has seen and that’s Deontay Wilder, the true king of the heavyweight division, the man who will be the man, and the man who will be the last one standing when all is said and done.”
Dominic Breazeale: “A win for myself is a win for the world. Nobody no longer wants to see Deontay Wilder as WBC heavyweight champion.
“He’s a disgrace for not only American boxing, for heavyweight boxing in general.
“He talks the talk, he tries to get you flustered so he can get on his high horse and build up his confidence.
“I’m the wrong guy for that. For me it’s in one ear and out the other, I’m just going to smile in his face.”
