On Friday, it was announced by the British side that the heavyweights would square off again on December 7 in Saudi Arabia
At the glorious Savoy Hotel by the Thames in London on Monday, Eddie Hearn confirmed that he has done a deal for Anthony Joshua to fight in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, in December.
Robles his trainer said “If we gotta go to Wales or England or in this case Saudi Arabia, we gotta do what we gotta do…
“We knew it from day one. It’s what we signed up for. There was a rematch clause that of course, if we won, we would have to give Anthony Joshua the immediate rematch.
“We’ve gotta go by what the contact says and obviously we’re gonna give him the rematch because that’s what we signed up for.”
The rematch will be in Saudi Arabia and a venue built on the sand dunes – the 12,000 seat stadium constructed in the middle of a desert race track.
