“They want to build a new stadium,” Hearn told Sky Sports about the hosts in Saudi Arabia. 

“They have indoors options.

“They want to create something very, very special. The last time they built a stadium for the Andy Ruiz Jr fight in just seven weeks and it held 18,000.

“This will be a similar set-up.
