WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk's promoter and Ready To Fight's top dog Alex Krassyuk weighed in on Saudi Arabia's boxing scene:
"Here's the scoop: they're making fan dreams come true. Back in the US and UK, it's tough to mix it up - one fighter's tied to one promoter, another to a different camp. Setting up a bout, hammering deals, and splitting the dough gets tricky. Fans end up getting the short end of the stick.
But these folks? They're die-hard boxing buffs. They get what fans are itching to see, and they deliver. Just think, a couple of years back, who'd have thought we'd see all the big guns throwing down in one explosive night?
Imagine this lineup in one evening - Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker, Daniel Dubois, Otto Wallin, Dmitry Bivol, Filip Hrgovic, and a bunch more." That's what Krasiuk's talking about.
