David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko will be ringside for Anthony Joshua v Eric Molina, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
The heavyweights, who fought in 2011, are part of our team to cover Joshua's second world title defence and the packed undercard at the Manchester Arena, on Saturday December 10.
It's always good fun watching a rival in the ring doing their thing.
Klitschko and Joshua are expected to meet in 2017 with Haye also setting his sights on his compatriot, and the pair will be watching closely as part of the Sky Sports Box Office team, which includes former world champions Carl Froch and Johnny Nelson, as well as world-title challenger Matthew Macklin.
Klitschko, who beat Haye on a unanimous points decision in Hamburg five years ago, will be arriving in the United Kingdom on the day and 'Hayemaker' is looking forward to renewing old acquaintances.
Haye told Sky Sports: "I've seen him out and about a couple of times. We've settled our differences. He came out on top so there is no real beef.
"I've always wanted the rematch, I've always wanted an opportunity to set the record straight and prove that wasn't me on my best night, but maybe that chance has gone now. You never know.
"If he goes out there and knocks out Joshua then a rematch with myself and Klitschko could be one of the biggest rematches.
"It's always good fun watching a rival in the ring doing their thing.
"When you are up there close at ringside, you can see every movement, every muscle, you can see the real rhythm, the timing. I always make sure that I get the opportunity, if possible, to see someone I may fight up close and personal."
Haye will face Tony Bellew at heavyweight, live on Sky Sports Box Office on March 4, with Klitschko touted to fight Joshua next year.
The Ukrainian has not boxed since losing his titles to Tyson Fury last November as their planned rematch was cancelled in September.
Adam Smith, Head of Sky Sports Boxing, said: "Wladimir and David are not only former world champions but astute analysts who will be keeping a very close eye on Joshua.
"Klitschko seems to be the front runner to face Joshua next year but you never know in boxing - especially with Haye in such good spirits.
"It will also be extremely interesting to see the pair of them meet up again and who knows, the word 'rematch' might crop up. But first and foremost they are both here to run the rule over Joshua."
Joshua's world title defence against Molina tops a busy bill, with bitter British rivals Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora chief support, super-flyweight Kal Yafai looking to become Britain's latest world champion, Katie Taylor making her second professional appearance while Callum Smith, Scott Quigg and Conor Benn also feature.
