There hasn’t been many bigger weeks for boxing than the one just gone.
I promised we would be changing the game and boy have we done that with two of the biggest cards ever seen in the sport. Everyone said it couldn’t be done but we’ve brought Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder together.
They’ll fight different opponents on December 23 but the hope is that they will then take on each other in 2024. But one mega fight which is signed, sealed and announced is Tyson Fury’s undisputed heavyweight showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.

The two best in the division will battle it out to prove who is the top man. You know who I believe that is but we will find out for sure on February 17 in Saudi Arabia.
But you don’t have to wait that long for big action thanks to that stacked card in December. Joshua, Wilder, Otto Wallin, Joseph Parker, Filip Hrgovic, Dmitry Bivol, Jai Opetaia, Daniel Dubois and Jarrell Miller to name just a few.
All on the one card, the same night, and all part of Riyadh Season. It’s hard to believe but we are now making the seemingly impossible possible.

That’s down to our fantastic relationship with Turki Alalshikh, the chairman of the General Entertainment Authority in Saudi, and it is only just the beginning. It will get bigger and better. But it won’t be just in the Middle East.
We will be making huge fights for the UK in 2024 and we’ve got some this weekend, too. Up in Manchester tonight, there is the Magnificent Seven card.
It’s not the first time we used that name, admittedly. Back in 2010, I staged a show with the same title. Six of the boxers from that night fought for world titles.
