Arena Completed For Joshua-Ruiz II
On Wednesday, the site of Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr’s rematch for the unified world heavyweight championship has been completed just under two weeks away from fight night.
The Diriyah Arena is an open-air 15,000 seat venue built on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was constructed by 175 workers utilizing 295 tons of steel stretching across 57 kilometers. The process began on October 7th and took nearly two months to complete.
Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Boxing, said: “The arena and site are utterly breath-taking, with a theme park and concert the night before as well. It’s like nothing we’ve seen before in boxing. The Clash On The Dunes will be a night to remember. We can’t wait.”
