Lightweight Darren Traynor aims to put Aberdeen back on the boxing map by shocking ring legend Carl Frampton.
The 33-year-old will face the former two-weight world champion at lightweight over 10 rounds.
The top-of-the-bill fight will be broadcast live on BT Sport and on ESPN in the United States.
With the world watching, Traynor reckons a shock win will make the boxing world take notice of the Granite City.
Traynor said: “If I can win it will put Aberdeen back on the boxing map – especially the Northern Sporting Club and the Granite City gym where I train.
“That would be great for everyone involved there.”
Traynor had been put on standby by promoters MTK Global for the last five weeks in case scheduled opponent Vahram Vardanyan had to pull out due to visa problems or coronavirus restrictions.
Vardanyan was forced to withdraw at the weekend due to visa problems.
Tonight’s clash at the BT Studios in Stratford is the first time Frampton, a former super-bantamweight and featherweight world champion, has fought at lightweight.
Traynor, however, has previous experience of the 135lbs division, having beaten Eddie Doyle to win the Scottish lightweight title in 2018.
He said: “I am a naturally bigger person, so I aim to use my size and strength. I have a game plan set out.
“I just have to go out there and establish my jab in the first couple of rounds and then let my hands go
“There may be no fans but when you get into the ring it is just you and your opponent.
“There will be no distractions, so I will get into the zone and give it my all.”
Frampton was initially scheduled to fight reigning champion Jamel Herring for the WBO super featherweight title in Belfast on June 13.
That fight fell through due to coronavirus restrictions and is now pencilled in for Las Vegas in November.
However, if Traynor overcomes the odds to defeat Frampton, the Aberdonian could be rocketed into contention for the title.
Traynor accepts the enormity of a victory.
He said: “This could be life changing.
“A win would be absolutely huge for my boxing career and would put me right back up the rankings.
“That would put me in contention for big title fights again.
“Facing Frampton is the biggest fight of my life.
“Being the underdog can work for me, as there is no pressure on me.”
