Boxers George Groves and Anthony Fowler will both go on the Kell Brook v Errol Spence Jr undercard
There are 10 fights in all ranging from a professional debut for Anthony Fowler – cousin of former Liverpool, Leeds and Man City striker Robbie – to Groves’ shot at redemption after three losses at the highest level and there are also a number of Olympians on a typically Eddie Hearn card.
The main event will start around 10.30pm but the TV broadcast starts about 6pm.
The chief support – Groves v Chudinov – will be in the ring for about 9.30pm.

Mike Tyson bites Evander Holyfield on the left ear in the third round of their WBA Heavyweight match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in 1997
But in Russian Chudinov he faces a relative unknown quantity.
Chudinov has had just 15 fights and has only boxed once in the last two years.
This is still Groves’ best change though after two defeats to former WBA and IBF champion Carl Froch and former WBC title holder Badou Jack.
Prediction: Now or never for Groves? Now he will be crowned world champion.
Dave Allen v Lenroy Thomas – Commonwealth heavyweight title
Doncaster-born Allen is one of the most likeable men in British boxing with a wicked sense of humour making him a fans’ favourite.
Allen is the first to admit he is not the most talented, but promoter Eddie Hearn has started a plan to get him a British title.

Winning the Commonwealth belt would be a huge success for the fighter that has sparred with both Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.
Prediction: Allen by stoppage.
Jamie Cox v Lewis Taylor – WBA intercontinental super-middleweight title
Swindon fighter Cox was a surprise signing by Hearn recently and has his first fight with Matchroom on the card.
Heavy-handed Cox could fight the winner of Groves against Chudinov and he should have no problems setting it up.
Prediction: Cox by stoppage.
Dave Allen is one of the most popular boxers on the British circuit
Andy Townend v Jon Kays – Commonwealth super-featherweight title
This could be fight of the night if the main event does not live up the hype.
They may not be well known to the wider public or on the way to superstardom, but this is a well matched fight between two solid professionals.
Prediction: Townend on points.
Anthony Fowler v Arturs Geikins – light-middleweight contest (four rounds)
Rio 2016 Olympian Fowler makes his long-awaited professional debut against the Latvian journeyman.
Fowler has teamed up with trainer Dave Coldwell, who counts Tony Bellew among his charges, and it will be interesting to see the changes he has made since leaving the GB Boxing set-up.
Prediction: Fowler by stoppage.
Joe Cordina v Josh Thorne – super-featherweight contest (four rounds)
Another Rio 2016 Olympian in action as Welshman Cordina continues his pro career with his third fight in just over a month.
He has stopped his two previous opponents and the stylish puncher should do the same here.
Prediction: Cordina by stoppage.
Lawrence Okolie v Rudolf Helesic – cruiserweight contest (four rounds)
The final Rio 2016 Olympian in action on the card. Okolie was gutted not to fight on the Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko undercard at Wembley Stadium last month as the strict curfew meant there wasn’t time for him to get on.
But he will get his chance for his third professional contest tonight and it will be a ‘blink and you will miss it’ affair.
Prediction: Okolie by stoppage.
Also on the bill, Brook’s fellow Ingle Gym fighters and promising boxers Atif Shafiq, Kyle Yousaf and Nadeem Siddique will all be in action.
