The event will take place at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on June 1st, 2024.

Alalshikh chose the last weight class. He decided to make it the heavyweight division, being the second to choose such level.

‘For me,’ he said. ‘number five, of course is the heavyweights. They know I love the heavyweights.’

Warren who chose the first and third fights’ divisions said the following at the moments he was allowed to speak on that:

‘The weight. Heavyweight division. We’re very strong in the heavyweight division. We have a great roster of heavyweight fighters and it will be one of ours.’

‘Traditionally the British middleweight division is the division, so it’s going to be the middleweights.’

Hearn went with the featherweight the light-heavyweight classes for the second and first fights.

‘I’m going with a slightly smaller weight, I’m going with the featherweight division. We have a number of champions at featherweight and have done historically for the last few years.

‘Like Frank I feel that we’re very strong at 126lbs, and I’m confident that will be one on the scoreboard for Matchroom.’

‘Another fantastic division for British boxing, and we’re going to roll the dice with 175lbs, the light-heavyweight division. Hoping for a big domestic match-up.’
