An epic night of professional boxing awaits fans with a stacked undercard officially announced…
It’s nearly amongst us. The official undercard for ‘Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury: The Truth’ is now confirmed, with local and international boxers set for an action-packed evening of drama and exhilaration at Diriyah’s purpose-built arena on Sunday February 26.
Aside from the main event, where two of boxing’s biggest rivals will reach its conclusion, ‘The Truth’ will also feature an eight-fight undercard.
A box-office viewing
Ilunga Makabu will be defending his WBC cruiserweight world championship against former two-weight world champion Badou Jack in the evening’s co-main event. Both fighters will seek to emerge with the division’s most coveted prize and lay claim to the title of cruiserweight king.
Rising Saudi boxing star Ziyad Almaayouf looks to continue his professional ascension against Ronald Martinez. Almaayouf made his professional debut on the ‘Rage on the Red Sea’ undercard last August and is looking to emulate his first-round stoppage victory last time out.
Elsewhere on the bill, undefeated American cruiserweight prospect Muhsin Cason (10-0, KO 7) will go head-to-head with Azerbaijan’s Taryel Jafarov, and Badr Al-Samreen, the first Jordanian professional boxer (7-0, KO 6), will take on Viorel Simion of Romania.
American YouTuber Adam Saleh will fight fellow countryman Stuart Kellogg, while Saudi Arabia’s very own Zaid Majrashi will face Philip Quansah, and Salman Hamda will face off against Daniel Plange.
Meanwhile, Ragad Al Naimi will make history as the first Saudi female boxer to make her professional debut when she takes on Perpetual Okaidah in the evening’s preliminary bouts. Female participation in boxing has never been higher across the Kingdom. Al Naimi hopes to deliver an impressive performance to inspire other up-and-coming local talent seeking to emerge on the global stage.
