Chris Eubank Jr finally returns to the ring on Saturday evening as he takes on Wanik Awdijan in Newcastle.
The British middleweight was originally slated to return on 2 October but his opponent, Sven Elbir, was forced to withdraw at late notice after contracting Covid-19.
Eubank will now face Awdijan instead. The German has rarely fought outside of Germany but has only lost once in a nine-year professional career.
For Eubank, though, it is expected to be little more than a warm-up ahead of a higher-profile clash, with Wales’s Liam Williams mooted as a potential opponent.
Here is everything you need to know:
When is it and what time will it start?
The fight schedule has been altered after local hero Lewis Ritson was forced to withdraw from his bout due to Covid-19, with Eubank Jr unlikely to take to the ring before 8.30pm.
How can I watch it online and on TV?
The fight night will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Arena with coverage beginning at 7.30pm.
