TalkSPORT journalist Simon Jordan reports that Saudi Arabia is preparing to host a series of heavyweight boxing matches featuring prominent fighters.
Jordan said, "I wanted to talk about the events that are likely to happen in the heavyweight division. There are observations and rumors that I think have some truth - that there will be a series of fights in the Middle East involving Fury, Usyk, Joshua and Wilder."
He outlined the plan as follows: "The plan is this. There will be three fights: Fury vs. Usyk, Wilder vs. Joshua. And a third fight in which the winners will face each other to determine the real king of the heavyweight division. This will answer the question of why Anthony Joshua decided not to fight until December," Jordan told talkSPORT Boxing.
It's worth mentioning that negotiations between Usyk's and Fury's teams recently fell through due to the British fighter's departure. The bout, initially scheduled for April 29th at Wembley, would have determined the undisputed heavyweight world champion. Usyk now plans to make his first defense against mandatory WBA contender Daniel Dubois, with the fight potentially taking place this summer.
