Turki Alalshikh's Ambitious Vision for Heavyweight Boxing Until 2030

Saudi sports figure Turki Alalshikh aims to revolutionize heavyweight boxing, promising fans the biggest fights until 2030. With Saudi Arabia’s emergence as a major player in the boxing world, Alalshikh has orchestrated high-profile matchups, including Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk.

The “Day of Reckoning” boxing card has set the stage for future blockbuster events, featuring stars like Anthony Joshua and plans for an undisputed fight at 175 pounds between Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev.

Alalshikh acknowledges the challenges, citing issues with promoters, fight costs, and the four sanctioning bodies. He laments boxing’s decline in global popularity and expresses a desire to restore it to its former glory. Despite the grand vision, concerns arise about the impact on traditional boxing markets like the UK and the US, with potential drawbacks for hardcore fans attending fights in Saudi.

Eddie Hearn, a prominent figure in boxing promotion, emphasizes the importance of major fights happening closer to home. While acknowledging Saudi Arabia’s appeal for major events, Hearn highlights the UK as their main market.

The clash between global expansion and maintaining boxing’s roots sparks a debate about the sport’s future landscape. Alalshikh’s vision seeks to create a new boxing hub, challenging the status quo and offering fighters a fresh market.
