What time is the card starting?
The exhibition event will take place on Saturday, April 17 and is being held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
UK fans can expect the action to get underway after midnight with the card getting going from 2am Sunday morning and the pair likely slated for around 4am.

The fight is being shown live on online streaming site FITE TV in the UK.
It will be a pay-per-view event for UK fans and will cost £17.
Social media site Triller will be showing it in the USA.
Jake Paul and Ben Askren are fighting eight rounds at cruiserweight-level, meaning both fighters can't weigh anything over 200 pounds.
Considering Askren fought at 170lb during his MMA run and was 174lb as a collegiate wrestler, you can expect him to be massively under that limit.
Paul, on the other hand, weighed in at 189lb for his last boxing match.
