A piece of the heavyweight boxing title will be on the line Saturday night from the Barclays Center, as Deontay Wilder defends his WBC title against Artur Szpilka.

The event airs live on Showtime, which is being offered as a free preview weekend. Also, YouTube will stream the fight live online.

Wilder (35-0) claimed the title last January with a decision over Bermane Stiverne. He defended it twice last year, knocking out Eric Molina in the ninth round and stopping Johann Duhaupas in the 11th.

Szpilka (20-1) has won four straight since a loss to Bryant Jennings in 2014 via TKO. That includes three straight stoppages.

The card will also feature 2008 Olympic super heavyweight bronze medalist Vyacheslav Glazkov (21-0-1) taking on Charles Martin (22-0-1) for one of the titles vacated by Tyson Fury after his win over Wladimir Klitschko last November.
