In the fast-paced world of boxing, Turki Alalshikh, the 42-year-old Chairman of Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority, is on a mission to transform the sport and bring back its glory days. The urgency behind his vision is rooted in a deep-seated commitment to deliver extraordinary events for ‘Riyadh Season,’ a concept that has already witnessed spectacular matchups like Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou and the unforgettable ‘Day of Reckoning’ card.

In an interview with streaming platform DAZN, Alalshikh, a passionate boxing enthusiast, shared insights into his relentless work ethic and the health issues that drive him to propel the sport forward. He envisions a return to the heydays of the 1970s and 1980s when fighters were universally recognized on the streets.

Alalshikh’s dedication is evident in his tireless work schedule, clocking around 16 hours a day without taking breaks even on weekends. He emphasized that his commitment stems from a personal desire to contribute to his country and fulfill the trust placed in him by the King and the Crown Prince.

“I want to tell you, I don’t have the magic, I have something more powerful than the magic. Behind me there is two big mountain, you cannot see the end of the mountain. The King and the Crown Prince support what we are doing. We cannot do this without their support.”

Addressing his remarkable achievements with the General Entertainment Authority, Alalshikh attributed their success to the unwavering support of the King and the Crown Prince. He highlighted the significance of this backing, emphasizing that it is more potent than any magical formula.

As ‘Riyadh Season’ continues to unfold with a lineup featuring Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua vs Ngannou, and potential future bouts like Fury vs Joshua and a light-heavyweight unification clash, Alalshikh’s determination remains a driving force in reshaping the landscape of modern boxing.
