I know what you’re all thinking, what time can we come and join you tomorrow night?

Well, we will be bringing you live text coverage 19:00 BST.

That means you better stock up on snacks, we’ll be doing that from our base here in Salford, and find a comfy spot on the sofa because it’s going to be a long one.

Kal Sajad and Sam Harris are in Riyadh for us and should be thrilling us with insights through the evening.

If you cast our mind back to March when Anthony Joshua fought Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia, the Briton only emerged for his ringwalk at 00:24 UK time.

Organisers are aiming for an earlier start for Usyk-Fury but their ringwalk is not expected before 23:00 BST.

Interested in who is on the undercard? Who is the referee? Who are the judges? You can find all the answers to those questions, plus more by clicking here.

We’ll have plenty of content to keep you going through the night and will be across the IBF super-featherweight title bout when Joe Cordina defends against Anthony Cacace as well as Jai Opetaia’s IBF cruiserweight title defence against Mairis Briedis.

Also, you might want to do a refresh on the history of the heavyweight boxing division because I’ve got a quiz to keep you entertained!
