Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury trade blows tonight in one of the biggest heavyweight scraps for some time.
So what time will it all kick off?
Well, judging by the Showtime Pay-Per-View line-up, Wilder v Fury will not be in the ring anytime before 8:30 pm PT / 11:30 pm ET and 4:30 am UK.
Three fights take place from when the 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET / 2 am UK PPV begins.
The running order at the moment looks like this:
Joe Joyce v Joe Hanks – 10 Rounds Heavyweight
Luis Ortiz v Travis Kauffman – 10 Rounds Heavyweight
Jarrett Hurd v Jason Welborn – 12 Rounds Super – Welterweight world titles
Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury – 12 Heavyweight world title
Taking into account Joyce and Ortiz are tipped to finish their bouts early, Showtime will be looking to extend the length for both bouts to between 75 and 90 minutes, at least.
This gives another hour for the Hurd v Welborn clash before Wilder v Fury will be enticed to the ring, possibly two and a half hours into broadcast.
Should Joyce and Ortiz be carried the distance in an unlikely scenario, Wilder v Fury would then be looking at a latest time of three hours post-PPV start time.
Pacific time this would be 9 pm, 12 am on the East and 5 am in the UK. Anything after these times would be a huge surprise.
