Do you mean the wooden supporting columns? They don't actually reach the ground once the structure is complete, they're just temporary during the build phase.

These pop up stadiums are quite common and the Saudi's pay the very top dollar / pound / euro, for the very best structural engineers and construction managers. This arena is a bit of a red herring because we've had total progress pictures, you're probably seeing something like this for the first time and shocked to see how much it looks like basic scaffolding. Well most arenas look like this during a build phase, you've just never seen the progress of it. Most permanent stadiums are build with brick, as obviously they are intended to last for decades, not 5 years or whatever the design life is.

The temperature will be cool, almost cold. It will suit Joshua more than it will Ruiz.

I'm actually travelling over for the fight and i'm very excited!! I would have preferred it in Dubai but apparently Saudi is moving in a very similar direction to Dubai...lot's of expats (like myself) and lots of very well paid jobs there, I'm tempted

Dubai has been trying to host a major boxing event for along time, they tried to secure mayweather pacquaio, and many other fights but never happened. thats 1 reason

2nd andy ruiz did not want to go to the UK for the rematch as he felt he was not going to get fair treatment, and ruiz was also suspicious that they wanted to rematch in UK so joshua can use steroids after 2 other UK fighters tested positive. So ruiz felt it was a set up. (not saying or indicating joshua is on steroids but that was the speculation)

and i think eddie hern did not detail the rematch clause that the fight had to be in the UK so andy stood his ground and was demanding fight in the USA and joshua demanding it in the UK and they finally agreed to a neutral territory.

and since dubai has been putting in hight ticket purse bids for a while now, and finally 1 got accepted!!
