Last Updated: 30/01/18 9:18am
Lawrence Okolie is just days away from his grudge fight with Isaac Chamberlain as the London rivals put unbeaten records and reputations on the line.
The cruiserweight duo have been embroiled in a long-running feud and will finally share the ring at The O2 this Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.
How did it all start?
Okolie and Chamberlain aired their animosity on social media, regularly trading insults, and the pair have also clashed angrily in public.
Hackney-born Okolie and Brixton's Chamberlain have harshly dismissed each other's ring skills, but only one man will have the final word this weekend.
What is at stake?
Both boxers are yet to suffer a defeat as a professional, with Chamberlain holding nine straight victories, while Okolie has racked up seven successive wins.
The winner will boost their ranking as the WBA Continental belt is up for grabs, but the loser has to rebuild in the wake of a humbling first defeat.
How is Anthony Joshua involved?
The world heavyweight champion has acted as a mentor for Okolie, whose career is guided by Joshua's management company, and he is expected to watch the fight from ringside.
What can we expect in fight week?
More heated words?
Yes. Chamberlain stoked up the rivalry by putting a spoof 'Work Wanted' advert in Okolie's local newspaper.
Sky Bet have Okolie as the slight favourite at 8/15 and Chamberlain at 6/4, but tell us who you think wins...
Who is on the undercard?
Okolie's clash with Chamberlain is at the top of another busy bill as exciting super-welterweight Ted Cheeseman takes on Carson Jones, while Reece Bellotti defends his Commonwealth featherweight belt against Ben Jones.
Okolie's fellow Team GB fighter Joshua Buatsi is targeting his fourth professional win and is joined on the undercard by heavyweight Nick Webb, middleweight Felix Cash, and super-flyweight Charlie Edwards.
