Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will go head-to-head at a press conference this evening for the first time since their rematch early last year.
The pair will meet in Los Angeles at the Novo by Microsoft club, where they will answer questions and hype their upcoming trilogy fight.
They face off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 24, after Wilder won an arbitration case that forced Fury to drop plans to face Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia in favour of another fight with the American.
Fury brutally stopped Wilder in their second bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, winning by TKO in the seventh after dropping him twice in the earlier rounds.
Their first fight was a draw at the Staples Centre in LA back in December 2018, which many experts believed Fury had won, but was most notable for a massive knockdown landed by the American in the twelfth round.
Here's all you need to know about the press conference and how to watch it…
When is the Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder 3 press conference
The Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder 3 press conference takes place in LA tonight.
As with many boxing or UFC press conferences, the 1pm local time (9pm British) start could be pushed back depending on fighter arrival times.
There will also likely be speeches from the promoters involved before we hear from either Fury or Wilder.
What time will it start in the UK?
The event will kick off at 9pm tonight in the UK.
Fury and Wilder probably won't begin their verbal exchanges until after the initial speeches from the likes of Top Rank boss Bob Arum, so it could be 9.30pm by the time they get into it.
How to watch via live stream
The event will be broadcast on the Top Rank Boxing YouTube channel.
It will also be shown on the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) page at the same time.

Tyson Fury: "I hope he brings a lot more to the ring than last time," Fury told the Daily Mail.
"That was a one-sided beat-down but I love real challenges. I didn’t think he would take the trilogy fight but he’s proved me wrong.
"Either he’s a glutton for punishment or he’s just coming for the money, because he knows he can’t win.
"At least it will be over quicker for him. He won’t last seven rounds this time."
Deontay Wilder: "My mind is very violent," he said on a PBC Instagram Live stream. "We built a whole facility to commit a legal homicide and that's just what it is, my mind is very violent at this time.
"I can't wait, when you're contemplating and pre-meditating about harming a man and you see that person, what you've been thinking and feeling will come out.
"The only thing about it is, at that point in time, I have to wait until I get in the ring to really release because I can't do it on the outside, it'd defeat the purpose.
"The baby's got to eat, but when I do get in the ring, this is what I love about it, I'm able to release everything I've been feeling, everything I've been thinking, and get paid to do it."
