Saturday night will have three big boxing events, with the evening ending with the biggest of them. Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will return after a year out, with the KO artist taking on Robert Helenius.

Wilder hasn’t fought since October 2021, when he badly lost to Tyson Fury. Helenius is 31-3, and the 38-year-old will come in as a pretty sizable underdog. The co-main is Caleb Plant, who was TKO’d by Canelo Alvarez last time out. He faces Anthony Dirrell.

Join us for live results starting with the prelims at 7 p.m. ET, and we’ll also have play-by-play of the main event. The main card starts at 9 p.m. ET, with Wilder’s walkout expected to happen around midnight. Videos and highlights will also be embedded throughout the event.

The Fox Sports PPV event is also available as a live stream on Fite TV, or on the embed below:

Main Card (9 p.m. ET, Fox Sports PPV and FITE.tv)

Deontay Wilder vs. Robert Helenius

Round 1 - Wilder is significantly outweighed here. Wilder’s trying to move around early, but he still has that pretty awkward footwork. A few body shots from Helenius. Wilder misses on a wild haymaker. Left hook from Wilder, and Helenius pushes him to the ropes. Another body shot from Helenius. HUGE RIGHT HAND AND HELENIUS IS OUT IMMEDIATELY. FIGHT IS OVER QUICK! WOW.
