Carl Frampton finally meets Jamel Herring tonight in a much-delayed fight which could define his legacy.
The bout was due to take place first last year and then earlier in 2021 but Frampton suffered a hand injury.
The fight has also been moved from London to Dubai but promises to be one of the hardest to pick a winner in so far this year.
Frampton knows victory will elevate him to become Ireland's greatest-ever fighter having already won world titles at super-bantamweight and featherweight.
But standing ins his way is bona fide super-featherweight champion Herring who is determined to return to America with his belt.

"I gotta expect the best Jamel Herring there's ever been. We look at Jamel's last performance [against Jonathan Oquendo], he gets a bit of criticism from that, from the media and from other people. My own performance wasn't brilliant in my last fight [last August against Darren Traynor]. I think both of us need to be a lot better in this fight to come out victorious. I'm prepared to be better. Hopefully, Jamel is as well, and I think it's going to be a good fight."
"I don't have any doubts with the fight happening in Dubai because I'm a U.S. Marine. I've fought everywhere, in terms of the battlefield or in the ring. If you guys remember, I was willing to face him in Belfast with no issue, in front of thousands of people. I was willing to give him that home field advantage because I wanted the fight that bad that I didn't really care where the fight was at. As long as we had a ring and some gloves, I didn't care."
