Adding to the excitement, an epic showdown between undefeated boxing champions Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has also been announced for the coming month.

Amidst the myriad of attractions during the fourth edition of Riyadh Season, the UFC Fight Night takes center stage, promising an extraordinary night of mixed martial arts action. The event is expected to be a highlight, drawing attention from fans globally.
