As fight fans may recall, rival promoters Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn issued a challenge this week (on Monday, during the press conference to formally announce the “Knockout Chaos” card scheduled for March 8 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) to co-promote a “Five Vs. Five – Queensbury Vs. Matchroom” card. The challenge was issued by Turki Alalshikh.

With both promoters apparently shaking on a £1 million wager, Hearn and Warren agreed to match five of their fighters each on the untitled card. It has now been claimed that both men have made deals for the card.
According to The Mail, both men have written down their cards, and an official announcement is anticipated in March.
Which promoter’s stable will win, or is there a chance for a draw? Five bouts that were all anticipated to be excellent matchups with the goal of earning bragging rights for both promoters! Warren described it as “a proper event to find out whose stable is stronger.” When the fights are confirmed, further information will be available, including which promotional stable has the best chance of winning when the deals for the fights are finalized.
It’s possible to make a lot of different matchups with this.
Other possible bouts outside Fury vs. Joshua are Daniel Dubois (Queensbury) vs. Filip Hrgovic (Matchroom).
