“They want to build a new stadium. They have indoors options. In August at 11pm it will be about 23 degrees. They want to create something very, very special,” Hearn revealed.
“Last time they built a stadium for the Andy Ruiz Jr fight in just seven weeks and it held 18,000. This will be a similar set-up
“They have the opportunity to hold it indoors but they want to create something that will shock the world. They want to build a stadium just for this fight.”
