Joshua v Wallin: Cristiano Ronaldo ringside at fight in Saudi Arabia


Cristiano Ronaldo is ringside at the Day of Reckoning boxing event in Saudi Arabia, where Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are set to fight this evening.

Joshua is scheduled to box Otto Wallin in the main event at Riyadh’s Kingdom Arena, after Wilder’s bout with Joseph Parker.

The undercard was already well under way and had seen numerous finishes when Ronaldo arrived and sat in the front row – next to Turki Al-Sheikh, the Saudi adviser behind the Day of Reckoning event and the state’s drive to stage the biggest fights possible.

Football star Ronaldo, who moved to Saudi Pro League team Al Nassr in January, was ringside for one such fight in October, when heavyweight champion Tyson Fury boxed ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou in Riyadh. Briton Fury narrowly outpointed the mixed martial artist that evening, having suffered a knockdown by the Cameroonian, and is set to return to Riyadh in February for a clash with Oleksandr Usyk.

In moving to Al Nassr, Portugal forward Ronaldo ended his second spell at Manchester United. The transfer may yet be the final one in the 38-year-old’s career, after stints at Real Madrid, Juventus and Sporting CP brought numerous individual awards and team trophies.

Ronaldo arrived at Kingdom Arena just in time for Daniel Dubois’s slugfest with Jarell Miller, which Dubois won via TKO with approximately 10 seconds left in the final round.

Joshua’s fight with Wallin will be his third in Saudi Arabia, after the former world champion outpointed Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019 but lost a decision to Usyk in 2022.

Wilder, meanwhile, will compete for the first time in 14 months, as the former champion takes on Parker – a teammate of Wilder’s old rival Fury. Wilder’s last bout came against Robert Helenius, whom the American knocked out in Round 1.
