Alamiya made history by broadcasting the Kingdom’s first professional boxing event to more than 40 regional and international broadcasters including MBC, KSA Sports and ESPN among many others.
JEDDAH—Saudi Arabia hosted Friday Sept. 29, one the biggest long-waited events of the year, the World Boxing Super Series: Muhammad Ali Trophy, held at King Abdullah Sports City Hall in Jeddah.
