Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are both primed for super-fights in Saudi
And Bob Arum is also speaking to the same people on Tyson Fury’s behalf, amid rumours of a title unification with Oleksandr Usyk.
British heavyweight Chisora was employed by the Saudis to help promote Tommy Fury’s grudge match win over Jake Paul in February.
And he spoke out to claim Joshua, Fury, Wilder and Usyk are primed to make hundreds of millions in the Middle East.
Chisora told iFL TV: “I think each fighter will make about £150 (million).”
Joshua has twice boxed in Saudi before, beating Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019 but losing to Usyk last August.
It leaves Hearn having a good relationship with Skills Challenge Entertainment and he recently flew into Riyadh for talks.
Chisora believes the Saudi-based organisation can help bridge the gap with rival promotions and provide fans with the fights they want.
He said: “Skills Challenge, they don’t want to take over, they just want to put fights which people want to see, in a way where people have to see it.
“They don’t want to be talking to that promoter, nah, nah, nah.
“Skills Challenge will call the fighter, ‘This is how much we’ve got for you on the table. This is how much we’ve got for the other fighter on the table. This is the date to fight in Saudi, do you want it, yes or no?’
“There’s no, ‘What TV will it go?’ So when we pay the fighters, we own the rights to everything.”
