EDDIE HEARN ON SAUDIS CHANGING BOXING, WORKING WITH WARREN AND INSANE ZOMBIE TRAILER
This is an incredible time for the sport of boxing – and who better to provide the lowdown on exactly how it happened than Eddie Hearn.
In the next three months we will see some of the best shows ever put together by professional promoters, and many of the fights we’ve waited years to see. Astonishing stuff as Riyadh Season, masterminded by Turki Alalshikh, literally changes the sport overnight.
On December 23 in Riyadh, we get ‘The Day of Reckoning’ with Anthony Joshua facing Otto Wallin and Deontay Wilder locking horns with Joseph Parker on a star-studded show.
Then comes the main course on February 17, 2024 when it is Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk in that eagerly-awaited world heavyweight title unification match. With the sport set to crown its first undisputed heavyweight king since the great Lennox Lewis way back in 1999.
If all that wasn’t enough, we now appear to have a pretty nice dessert on the menu. Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder on March 9 – if both men are victorious in those December 23 bouts.
