Turki Alalshikh’s vision is clear: consolidate the fragmented world of boxing by bringing together the biggest players under one umbrella. Much like the UFC, where fighters from different backgrounds compete in a single league, Turki Alalshikh aims to establish a similar structure for boxing. This move could streamline the sport, enhance its global appeal, and provide fans with consistently high-quality matchups.

The Promoters Involved

Several leading promoters are reportedly part of the discussions:

  1. Matchroom Boxing (Eddie Hearn): Matchroom, led by Eddie Hearn, is a major force in the boxing industry. Their stable includes world champions like Anthony Joshua, Canelo Alvarez, and Katie Taylor. Hearn’s business acumen and promotional skills make Matchroom an essential component of this ambitious project.
  2. Golden Boy Promotions (Oscar De La Hoya): Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy has a rich history in boxing. With stars like Ryan Garcia and Vergil Ortiz Jr., Golden Boy brings a strong roster and a loyal fan base. Their involvement adds credibility and star power to the proposed league.
  3. Queensberry Promotions (Frank Warren): Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions has been a fixture in British boxing. Their stable includes Tyson Fury, one of the biggest names in the sport. Warren’s experience and network are invaluable assets for the league’s success.
