South Korea's Oh Sang-uk will look aim to achieve his third consecutive win at the International Fencing Federation (FIE) Sabre Grand Prix Final in Moscow.
Oh has twice defeated Hungary's Olympic gold medallist Áron Szilágyi recently, doing so at Grand Prix events in Cairo and Seoul.
He will aim to repeat his winning feats at the season-ending event in Moscow.
It is a competitive field, however, with all top 10 sabre fencers in the world participating.
This includes Szilágyi and world number one, Eli Dershwitz of the United States.
The women's event has the same highly-competitive nature, featuring Russian world champion Sofia Pozdniakova and London 2012 Olympic champion Kim Ji-yeon of South Korea.
World number one Sofya Velikaya of Russia took gold in Cairo, while Ukraine's 2017 world champion Olga Kharlan was the victor in Seoul.
Both will also be competing in Moscow.
The competition begins tomorrow.
