TYSON FURY has an offer to bring his Dillian Whyte match to Saudi Arabia.
And Mexican sanctioning authorities ordered their 6ft 9in ace to take on mandatory opponent Whyte first, while Anthony Joshua handled a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk over the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.
Both Brit giants will be eager to make as much money as possible from the all-English showdown but Whyte, and especially WBC radio, have insisted their interim champions are only worth 20% of their wallets.
And, as we learned from AJ Saudi Arabia’s huge win over Andy Ruiz Jr, Saudi Arabia’s website fees soar to host major events and help improve the country’s image. can boost wallets spectacularly.
Fury made headlines for a gig in Saudi Arabia, wrestling for WWE in 2019 for a rumored £12 million price tag.
And he teased his return to the oil-rich nation last week with a clip of himself posing with a photo of that gig, saying: “The king of Saudi Arabia is coming back! Get up there my boy!
“Some big news is coming, hold on tight!”

Fury spoke directly to Crown Prince Khalid bin Salman Al Saud in May 2021, when he was in deep negotiations about a tough confrontation with Joshua in the ultra-conservative sector.
And are ready to help promote the fight, as are the widely criticized rulers who have been accused of washing the sport.
He bellowed: “I just got a phone call from Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia, he told me this war is 100%. August 14, 2021 in the summer.
“All eyes of the world will be on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“This will be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the earth. Don’t miss it. All eyes are on us.”
The match fell apart when he was forced by the referee into the Wilder finale.
But it seems the pair have kept a good relationship, and hosting a Fury defense could bolster Saudi Arabia’s last chance to host an undisputed heavyweight fight.
When the Arab state held Joshua’s cautious rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr in December 2019, it was the basis for his next WBC belt hit against Fury or Wilder in there.
And now the House of Saud boxing brokers have another shot at growing the sport’s pinnacle event by hosting lead fights.
Whyte boxed on the AJ card in Diriyah, so there’s no problem boxing under the controversial regime.
And Oleksandr Usyk was on hand as a guest to watch all the action on the outskirts of Riyadh, so it shouldn’t be a problem to sign up for another Gulf mission.
