After more than two years of rumours and verbal sparring, just hours remain before two of the biggest combat sports stars of their generation finally step into the ring inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
If you’re not one of the lucky few who have managed to snag a ticket for tonight’s historic clash, numerous way remain in place for Irish and UK fans to ensure that they don’t miss a beat when the first bell rings tonight.
When Does The Fight Start?
As always, it’s difficult to predict the exact moment when the fight will begin but you can expect the hostilities to begin between 4am and 5am (BST). The seven-fight undercard includes some interesting match-ups, notably Badou Jack vs. Nathan Cleverly and Gervonta Davis (who missed weight and forfeits his IBF Junior Lightweight title regardless of the result) taking on Francisco Fonseca. The event begins at midnight BST, while the doors open at the arena at 10pm.
The telecast begins at 2am, with the walkouts scheduled for 4am and the fight itself shortly thereafter.
