Martin Murray vs Roberto Garcia
This should have been a vicious showdown between two British middleweights with big followings – but instead it is nothing of the sort.
Billy Joe Saunders has now twice pulled out of fighting Martin Murray and it looks like they all never get in the ring together.
But promoter Frank Warren refused to cancel the show and brought in 38-year-old Roberto Garcia to replace him.
The Mexican fighter has never boxed and is not expected to win the 10-round contest, but he has beaten the likes of Breidis Prescott so should know his way around the ring.
The undercard probably has more intrigue than the main event with Anthony Yarde and Ohara Davies both fighting while Daniel Dubois is taking on Tom Little for the English heavyweight title.

Josh Taylor vs Viktor Postol
Is it because he’s fighting predominantly in Scotland or is it because he has yet to get a shot at world title? Whichever it is, Josh Taylor is one of the most underrated fighters in Britain but he is desperate to change all that.
The 27-year-old faces a sturdy opponent in Postol, who has only been beaten by pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford and is ranked No 1 in the WBC super-lightweight list.
Taylor says there have been no conversations with the WBSS about joining their ranks for 2018/19 – but there could well be if he wins here.
