Finchley heavyweight Dereck Chisora faces Dillian Whyte at The O2 on Saturday night in a fight that headlines a stacked Matchroom bill.
This will be the second match-up between the two British rivals, who previously met at the Manchester Arena in 2016.
That bout was a thriller which Whyte won on a split decision, while the build-up to the fight itself was also high on drama.
Chisora will be looking for a third straight win, having already beaten Zakaria Azzouzi and Carlos Takam so far in 2018.
With Whyte on the verge of participating in fights for world titles, it will offer a step up in class for the 34-year-old.
If Chisora can avenge the previous defeat to Whyte and continue his winning streak this weekend, then it may well be him who his opponents spot as a world-title hopeful.
Chisora against Whyte headlines a Matchroom show that will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office.
