3.50am: Bika starting to take control in the second round against Sjekloca. Lucian Bute is ringside and is expected to fight the winner for the title.

3.45am: Bika and Sjekloca are getting underway so it could be an hour till Rees and Broner are in the ring.

3.40am: So, Rees v Broner is for the American's WBC lightweight belt which he won in November when he beat Antonio DeMarco.

Rees on the other hand is a former world champion at light-welterweight and held British and European titles at lightweight.

3.30am: Rees' ring walk won't be before 3.55am but we still have another fight first as Sakio Bika takes on Nikola Sjekloca in a final eliminator for the WBC super-middleweight title.

3.20am: Sportsmail's Jeff Powell is ringside in Atlantic City and will be bringing you all the latest news. Incidentally, he is the only national newspaper journalist present. We do spoil you…

3.10am: I'd love nothing more than for Rees to put Broner flat on his back but I just can't see it happening. Having said that, he will certainly give the American a tougher fight than the bookmakers are suggesting. Some in Las Vegas are believed to have quoted 80/1 which is frankly insulting.

3.05am: First things first, please send in your predictions using the addresses above, I want to hear how you think this fight is going to go!
