Providing chief support on the night are cruiserweight rivals Jai Opetaia and Mairis Briedis.

Opetaia beat Briedis for the IBF title in 2023 and a rematch was then called.

But Opetaia opted to instead fight on Anthony Joshua’s undercard in December and as a result lost his belt.

So the title he was harshly forced to vacate will once again be on the line when he shares the ring with Briedis again.

Also defending his IBF super-featherweight world title is undefeated Welshman Joe Cordina against Northern Irishman Anthony Cacare.

Heavyweights Agit Kabayel and Frank Sanchez collide in a WBC eliminator as they look to rise the ranks for a shot at the strap.

Moses Itauma – the 19-year-old dubbed Britain’s answer to Mike Tyson – returns against Ilja Mazencev.

And New Zealand cruiserweight David Nyika also faces Michael Seitz.

Fury’s friend and training partner Isaac Lowe take son Hasibullah Ahmadi and Mark Chamberlain fights Joshua Oluwaseun.
