Last Updated: 23/09/16 11:33am
Britain has four world title fights in as many weeks as the boxing season steps up a gear, live on Sky Sports.
Three of them are defending their titles on home soil with the fourth being a former world champion heading to foreign turf.
It all kicks off with Anthony Crolla taking on Jorge Linares on Saturday night, with the WBC world title and The Ring lightweight title on the line in front of a packed out Manchester Arena.
The following week sees Nathan Cleverly, the former WBO light-heavyweight holder, head to Germany to see if he can dethrone long-standing WBA boss Juergen Braehmer.
Next up is history-maker Ricky Burns, who will make the first defence of his WBA super-lightweight strap - his third world title at a third weight - with challenger Kiryl Relikh heading to Glasgow.
The final world title fight in four explosive weeks sees Tony Bellew defend his coveted green belt, the WBC cruiserweight strap, against American BJ Flores, in Liverpool.
