Full commentary of Anthony Joshua's fight against Charles Martin for the IBF heavyweight title on Saturday will be broadcast on BBC Radio 5 live.

He will be ringside from about 22:30 BST at London's O2 Arena for build-up and the fight commentary.

Costello will be accompanied by former super middleweight world champion Richie Woodhall and boxing journalist Steve Bunce.

Earlier in the evening on BBC Radio Wales and online, there will be live commentary of Welsh boxer Lee Selby's featherweight world title defence against Eric Hunter at the same venue.

BBC Radio Cymru will provide Welsh language commentary.
