The Mexican who surprised Joshua by knocking out the titles of the heavyweights of the AMB, OMB and FIB did not want to go to the United Kingdom to fight in the land of Joshua and in search of a bag of 50 million dollars accepted the offer to travel to the Arabian Peninsula.

The information was released by Mike Coppinger, U.S. boxing journalist who added that the city where the fight will take place is Riyadh, capital and main business center of Saudi Arabia.

Joshua belongs to DAZN so the fight will be televised in the United States and nine other markets for this streaming platform.
