Hearn says these are the same people he worked with for Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr’s rematch in Saudi in 2019.

With the Joshua – Fury fight taking place on August 14th, an indoor arena is being built for the match.

The weather would likely be too hot to stage the match outside in the sweltering summer heat in Saudi.

“Yeah,” said Hearn to iFL TV when asked if it’s true that the date and location for the Joshua vs. Fury fight are on August 14th in Saudi. “I agree with Frank (Warren) for once, that is correct.

“The 7th was actually the original date that the fight was planned for, but that’s also the final day of the Olympics, so the 14th is.
