    I do seriously wonder if Joshua, who has often been rumoured to be muslim or thinking of becoming muslim, WILL publicly convert to Islam sometime between now and December ..... ?

    For a massive cash bonus, of course.

    I'm sure they've been through the figures and the extra $ they're getting guaranteed from Saudi outweighs what the US TV $ would bring in.
    Its still prime time for UK PPV and may even beat the Klitschko fight a couple of years ago, so >1.5m buys.

    This reeks of investors ****ting their pants and wanting the biggest cash out possible just in case he doesn't win.

    Hearn has confirmed it’s in Saudi on his Twitter.

    What a complete farce for both the UK and US fans.

    It’s half amazing being in such an iconic place and venue. Like the the rumble in the jungle in some senses. But then being in such a corrupt place full of absolute ****s and the blood money funding it makes it a shame.

    Tricky questions will be asked of Hearn/Sky as regards to human rights, women’s rights and if he’s cashing out on Joshua in the lead up to this fight.

    Yes, because the Mobutu regime was in no way corrupt...

    The Saudi regime knows if it is to keep power it will need to diversify and not totally rely on oil. But that I can put diversify and Saudi Arabia in the same sentence is hopefully a very small step to the country moving away from tyranny.

    The fight here does make sense in a political way.

    No different than staging a fight in the US which is run by a white supremacist.

    People won't care. The Olympics went to China, a place which harvests human organs and nobody really gave a damn.

    As someone quite outspoken about drug cheats, are you worried about the testing out in Saudi? Do they even have a commission?
