Saudi Arabia interested in hosting Fury vs Usyk and Wilder vs Joshua

Saudi Arabia is doing everything it can to get the next big boxing contests, including Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder.

Amer Abdallah, the head of boxing at Skill Challenge Entertainment, told the Daily Express that boxing promoters in Saudi Arabia take their engagement in the sport very seriously and are willing to pay a lot of money.

"Tyson wants the fight, from what I understand. I know George [Warren] wants the fight and Frank [Warren] wants the fight at Queensberry," Amer Abdallah said.
"Usyk definitely wants the fight. AJ wants the fight. Eddie [Hearn] wants the fight. Shelly [Finkel] wants the fight.
"Deontay wants the fight. I mean, there's nothing that should prevent this from happening.
"It's going to be a premium price, and we're going to offer it to these guys and pay them their market value, if not, maybe even a little bit more.
"We're going to put on great fights and a great event. If anything prevents this fight from happening it's because certain individuals don't want the fight to happen, it won't be because the money isn't there."
