Stay tuned listed below for live updates on tonight’s action-packed boxing occasion.
Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is the clear favorite in this special face-off, as Ngannou, in spite of his remarkable MMA background, is entering the expert boxing ring for the very first time. The contrasting nature of the 2 sports makes Ngannou’s experience unimportant in this match.
– Fabio Wardley vs. David Adeleye
– Joseph Parker vs. Simon Kean
– Arslanbek Makhmudov vs. Junior Anthony Wright
– Moses Itauma vs. Istvan Bernath
– Carlos Takam vs. Martin Bakole

Eddie Hearn, speaking with the Matchroom Boxing website, discussed tonight’s Fury vs. Ngannou ‘The Battle of the Baddest’ card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia:
“The staging and phenomenon of this occasion are definitely extraordinary. However, I do not anticipate it to be a competitive fight. Fury, the heavyweight champ, is increasing against Ngannou, who has no expert boxing experience.”
“Despite this, I expect the occasion will be a phenomenon to enjoy, provided the magnitude of the fight and the splendour with which Saudi Arabia promotes such occasions throughout Riyadh season.”
“As for Usyk, I’ve discovered Fury has actually ended up being progressively aggressive about the date, which recommends to me that Usyk might not be all set. But we’ll need to wait and see on Saturday night or perhaps Monday early morning,” included Hearn.
