Rage on the Red Sea
'Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua II'
10 August 2022 2 mins 07s
Choppy waters.
by Andrew MacGregor

Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua II is a rather plain name for a boxing match, so promoters have also billed it Rage on the Red Sea. Rejected names must have included The Scrap in Saudi Arabia, The Dust-Up in the Desert, or The Jeddah Jostle.

The fight receives a burly promo courtesy of Dominic O'Riordan, who captures Usyk and Joshua's preparations for Saturday 20th August. We like that both fighters have taken a leaf from Batman's playbook.

There are also cameos by Rasha Al Khamis, Saudi Arabia's first certified female boxing coach, and former pro Naseem Hamed who declares,"It's all going down in Jeddah". He may have been a prince in the ring, but not in Saudi Arabia.

As slick and atmospheric as the promo is, the cynicism about Saudi Arabia's unfettered sportswashing remains. Coupled with the rise of LIV Golf, money talks louder than ever before.
