Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to fight in a ‘specially-built stadium in Saudi Arabia’

English sports promoter, Eddie Hearn just revealed that the highly-anticipated heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will hold in a purpose-built stadium in Saudi Arabia.

Days after Hearn confirmed that the fight will take place in Saudi Arabia on the 14 of August, he has now shared more updates on the upcoming fight, stating that plans are in place for an entirely new venue to stage the fight for the undisputed heavyweight title.

Discussing the venue, Hearn told Sky Sports about the hosts in Saudi Arabia: “They want to build a new stadium. They have indoors options.

“In August at 11 pm it will be about 23 degrees.

“They want to create something very, very special. Last time they built a stadium for the Andy Ruiz Jr fight in just seven weeks and it held 18,000.

“This will be a similar set-up.

“They have the opportunity to hold it indoors but they want to create something that will shock the world. They want to build a stadium just for this fight.”
