BBC Radio 5 Live will have uninterrupted commentary on the long-awaited world heavyweight unification fight on Saturday between Britain's WBA champion David Haye and the Ukrainian, Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the IBF and WBO belts.
Mike Costello will be joined by Steve Bunce and summariser, Richie Woodhall, at the Imtech Arena in Hamburg to present live coverage of the fight, which is expected to begin at 22.00 (GMT).
Haye who has insisted he will retire this year, has ramped up the hype in the run-up to the fight, calling this his career-defining fight and the biggest challenge he's ever faced, while Klitschko goes into the match as favourite, having won 55 of his previous 58 fights and his last loss falling seven years ago.
In the build-up to the fight Steve Bunce previewed the match in 5 Live Boxing on Thursday 30 June. You can listen again to this programme via the 5 Live website.
