    In just over eight weeks, Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua will square off in their Saudi Arabia rematch.

    However, the arena has not yet been built for the event and plans have only today been made public to UK fans by organisers.

    The venue – rumoured to have a 12,000-15,000 capacity – will be a three-sided arena, with a unique separate stand on the fourth side.

    It will also host the upcoming Diriyah Tennis Cup as part of ‘Diriyah Season’ in the region.

    The athletics in Doha was a bit shit as well. They got all the dough over there in that part of the World but not the experience of putting on big sport it seems.

    I don’t think experience helps. Look at how they organise Hajj

    Makes you wonder why they bid for everything then. I know Camel racing is really popular around the area My ol man was in the navy and he went in Bahrain. He said it was awesome. Organised chaos. Like our grand national. Perhaps it's just what you might call western sports that aren't popular yet.

    Camel racing is popular but so inhumane tbh. They traffick kids from Pakistan for jockeys and a lot of them die or get serious injuries from that. I don't know why Pakistanis suck Saudi's dick (not literally!) but that's another matter

    I don't know the full detail. But problem is that Saudi preach "Ummah" (Islamic community) yet do the opposite for Muslims worldwide. Look at Yemen and Kashmir! They even manipulate the religion via Wahhabism for soft power. And some people suck up for it, making their whole lives based on such a conservative form of Islam. It has ruined artistic movements, such as the Sufi movement (kinda our version of gospel but it was and, to some extent, is popular among all faiths in South Asia. Such a toxic state. If they didn't have oil money, we would be treating them like North Korea
