Turki told DAZN as quoted by World Boxing News: “I want him [Gervonta Davis]. I am sending a message now from you to [Al] Haymon. Let’s do a job, brother. But Haney, I want to see Haney in my country [too]. I am sending messages from you now to him. I will try to do it in 2024. Of course, we want him [to fight] in my country [of Saudi Arabia].”

That order by Davis is not difficult for Alalshikh to arrange, but any fight by Davis in the Middle East can affect the United States’ hold on boxing entertainment. Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) sold 1.3 million Pay Per Views in his fight against Ryan Garcia, which would threaten the American market if they decide to transfer his next fight to Saudi.

The Davis vs Garcia match had a revenue of $22.8 million, an amount that the Saudi gate receipts could not match. But they could pay that sum in advance, which could convince Davis to accept the Riyadh offer.
