Who else is on the fight card?

Andy Ruiz vs Anthony Joshua is the only fight currently confirmed on the card.

Yet, the Brit has previously stated that he hopes there will be a women's bout in Saudi Arabia.

Talking to BBC 5 Live Boxing, he said: "We are looking at potentially putting a woman on the undercard.

"We've listened to the critics and asked questions to organisers. The event will be spectacular, no doubt about it.

"We hear they are building the grassroots out there. What boxing has done for the likes of myself, building confidence, this is what boxing is to Saudi Arabia. It's not just two men coming together to fight."
