Saturday night will see Ukrainian fighter Oleksandr Usyk make his return to when he faces off against British boxer Daniel Dubois at the Tarczynski Arena.
The heavyweight world champion has not fought since he beat Anthony Joshua back in Saudi Arabia this time last year, a fight he won to take his professional record to 20-0.
The win in Jeddah was the 36-year-old's second win over Joshua, who faced Usyk a year prior at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, losing out via a unanimous decision.
With talks over a fight between Usyk and Tyson Fury having stalled, the Ukrainian fighter eventually opted to face Dubois, who last fought back in December when he beat Kevin Lerena.

Having won 18 of his 19 career fights via knockout, Dubois will hope his power can cause Usyk problems. However, the Ukrainian will know all about Dubois' weaknesses too. Back in 2020, the British fighter suffered the only defeat of his pro career, losing to Joe Joyce after suffering a fractured eye socket.
Whatever happens during the main event, it promises to be an exciting evening of boxing out in Poland. And Daily Star Sport has everything you need to know ahead of the fight at the Tarczynski Arena
