As the much-anticipated event in Saudi Arabia approaches, boxing fans are eagerly anticipating what is being touted as the biggest spectacle in the history of the sport. The lineup for this event is nothing short of outstanding, boasting a roster of boxing legends and rising stars that is hard to match.

Although the significance of the upcoming showdown is acknowledged, it is important to note that throughout history there have been several such events where the world's biggest stars performed. Headlining the event is Anthony Joshua, who will face Otto Wallin in the main event.

Joshua himself testifies to the magnitude of this opportunity, claiming that this fight card is unparalleled in boxing history. Usually, viewers can tune into the main event and then shift their focus elsewhere, but Joshua is confident this time will be different.

Co-title fight of the evening we will see a fight between Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker. They will be preceded by Filip Hrgovic's performance, and he will box against Marko De Mori. Dmitry Bivol will fight Lyndon Arthur and the WBA light heavyweight belt will be on the line.

We will mention other names like Daniel Dubois, Jarrell Miller and it is already certain that it will be a spectacle.

Joshua created additional hype for the event

"This is the best fight card in history. I don't think I've ever seen one like this before.

Most shows, you know, people tune in, but they're out of it. They're on the phone, eating, cooking, and then when the main match of the night comes around, you run back to your seat. At this event, you will sit and watch from beginning to end,'' Joshua told Matchroom Boxing, and he also touched on the training camp for the match: "The atmosphere in the hall is very good, I'm happy that I came here so early that I almost had the whole camp.

Even though I found out about the match seven weeks earlier, I'm happy that I was already in training because I wouldn't want to miss an opportunity like this.' '
