On Sunday night in Diriyah, the British Love Island star defeated the American former YouTuber Paul by a split decision. Reaction to the fight is still going on.

After trading insults for the better part of two years, it was a highly anticipated fight.

A few hours before the bell rang, football star Ronaldo was spotted inside the arena after Saudi Arabia won the bid to host the fight, which generated a lot of interest on pay-per-view.

The elites in the country and boxing were present, including Mike Tyson, Deontay Wilder, and Tommy’s half-brother Fury, the current world heavyweight champion.

The host broadcaster in the UK, BT Sport, featured both Ronaldo and his son, Cristiano Jr., the Portuguese striker who is earning an astounding £173 million per year in the country.

The 38-year-old veteran appeared unhurried as he held onto his phone indoors while sporting a stylish pair of sunglasses.

The presence of the Portuguese at the fight had been announced a few days ahead by host Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo arrived early as the venue started to fill up, seemingly unconcerned that his previous team, Manchester United, had won the League Cup final earlier on Sunday afternoon.

Only about 8,000 people can fit in the arena, which was erected specifically for the fight in just two weeks.

That is just another sign that Saudi Arabia wants to join other nations in the area, like Qatar, as one of the great sports powers.

The decision to sign Ronaldo was approved by the ruling family, and as part of his multi-million pound contract with Al-Nassr, the Portuguese player has accepted an ambassadorial role.

Two fights between Anthony Joshua, including a win over Andy Ruiz in 2019 and a loss to Oleksandr Usyk last summer, are among the major contests that have taken place in the nation.

The nation has also been suggested as the venue for Tyson Fury’s fight with the Ukrainian to unify the heavyweight division later this year.

Although having had a rather rocky start to life in the nation, Ronaldo has adjusted to the Saudi Pro League as many anticipated.

He has eight goals and two assists in his last four matches for the team.

He scored a hat-trick against Damac on Saturday after scoring four goals against Al-Wehda at the beginning of this month.

With 18 games remaining in the season, Al-Nassr are presently in first place in the Saudi Pro League.

On February 27th in Saudi Arabia, Jake Paul and former Love Island contestant Fury entered the ring with the intention of finally putting an end to their animosity.

Following Anthony Joshua’s fight with Oleksandr Usyk in Riyad, Saudi Arabia in 2022, it was the most recent high-profile sporting event to take place in the Middle East.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar had its share of flash and glamour, and many would argue that it was the best FIFA World Cup in recent memory in terms of organization, quality of play, and aesthetics.

Given how well-known Jake Paul and Tommy Fury are on social media, their fight drew a lot of attention from around the globe.

However, Jake Paul was unable to make his guest happy as Tommy Fury soundly thrashed him.
