ANTHONY JOSHUA will rematch Oleksandr Usyk at the 35,000-seat Jeddah Super Dome arena.
The heavyweights have announced their next combat which falls on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.
Jeddah is the confirmed place and the Super Dome is envisioned to be disclosed as the host.
The venue staged the WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay back-for every-check out event in March.
It was headlined by winner, Shayna Baszler, Natalya, Liv Morgan, Asuka, Ruby Riott, and Sarah Logan.
The building stands over 46 metres large, with an outside diameter of 220 metres and masking 34,636 sq. metres of the region.
And it turned right away noteworthy for breaking two connected developing construction data.
It is now the biggest continuous dome arena (non-openable), a file previously held by the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Also, it ranks as the world’s premier geodesic dome.
Joshua, 32, has boxed in Saudi in advance of, soon after he was crushed in New York by Andy Ruiz Jr, also 32.
He acquired redemption around 12 rounds at the Diriyah Arena, which was built in just 56 times.
It held a potential of 15,000, but AJ’s rematch with Usyk, 35, can host over double that.
Just like two decades in the past, thanks to Saudi Arabia’s alleged human legal rights violations, the choice to take the mega-dollars struggle there has been slammed.
But promoter Eddie Hearn, tasked with landing the largest paydays feasible for his fighters, defended the repeat shift.
Hearn stated: “The problem at the second is no one particular wants to be sincere.
“I’m very comfy, notably in boxing, to make selections like that, for quite a few distinct good reasons.
“A person is that I have carried out it just before. It was a big good results. I have witnessed the get the job done that went in to make a significant sporting function for the location. It is not a sport of golf.
“I’m not expressing the golfers should not be taking part in in this tournament, I’m indicating it’s a prize battle in which contractually we have to go to the location that eventually produces the most quantity of income for this struggle – no matter whether AJ likes it or not.
“It’s not even close. It’s not like there’s a small little bit of a difference from accomplishing it in London. It’s a entire diverse stratosphere.”
