Unless of course, you're Johnny Nelson, because he is the last of the Sky Sports boxing panel to give his take as he joins Dave Clark in the studio to set the scene ahead of Saturday night.

Friday was weigh-in day when Akir Khan and Marco Antonio Barrera hit the scales and there was a slight drama as the Mexican came in over the limit at the first time of asking.

Nicky Cook and Enzo Maccarinelli also hit the scales at Manchester's Triangle Shopping Centre and Ian Darke and Jim Watt will be reporting back with exactly what happened.

Of course, Khan-Barrera is top of the agenda though and we will look at the fight and hear from everyone that matters, the fighters, the trainers and with the one and only Don King in town, probably the promoters!

Khan will tell us what he went through after the Breidis Prescott loss, while there is also a lot on the line for world champion Cook and another man rebuilding his career, Maccarinelli.

Nelson will run the rule over both Brits before the best of all signs off our build-up as we hear with a man with a foot in both the Khan and Barrera camps, Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton.
