Anthony Dirrell is defending his world title for the first time tonight with Sky Sports and George Groves watching on.
The WBC super-middleweight champion is topping the bill in Chicago as he takes on Badou Jack, which you can see live on Sky Sports 1 at 2.00am.
Groves has flown out to be ringside not only to get a closer look at the champion but also remind him he will have to fight him within 90 days if he keeps hold of the title.
On top of that, another British super-middleweight star, Callum Smith, will be part of our studio team watching on while James DeGale will take on Andre Dirrell - Anthony's older brother - for the vacant IBF belt next month.
The division is bubbling up nicely here in Britain and even if Dirrell calls himself The Dog, Groves can not wait to bite back.
"He's boxed very well recently and is someone I can't take for granted," said the Hammersmith man.
"But I am very confident I can beat him. I will get that win and that world title - if I face him - and I will get the knockout.
"You always want to take on the best and while Jack isn't bad, I've got to be honest and say that Dirrell should come through this. Mind you, he won this title back in August and hasn't boxed since."
Dirrell (27-0-KO22) is unbeaten though and is rough and ready to go. His first attempt to take the WBC title away from the experience Sakio Bika ended in a scrappy draw back in December 2013.
The governing body ordered a rematch and the man from Flint, Michigan, won a unanimous decision.
By then, Groves was the mandatory challenger but Dirrell questioned not only who he is but the prestige in taking on a fighter that had been knocked out twice by Carl Froch.
In the event, Dirrell was given time to order a voluntary which means we will see a rarity - a Swedish fighter - in the shape of Jack (18-1-1-KO12).
This is a big step-up for the man dubbed The Ripper and although he was sparked inside a round by Derek Edwards last year, he can not be overlooked. He can punch, he has heart but will he be able to stay out of range of Dirrell?
"It should be worth watching," said Groves
"And maybe had I known it was going to be on Sky Sports, I might not be going out there"
Tune into Sky Sports 1, 2.00am (Saturday morning) to watch Dirrell v Jack, with Callum Smith in the studio, with Adam Smith and Johnny Nelson.
