Boxing fans will be familiar with the name Mark de Mori with the Australian heavyweight being announced on the Saudi Arabian mega card as Filip Hrgovic's opponent.
De Mori will compete on the undercard of the Saudi show that will also feature Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder. The Australian is a veteran of the boxing scene, and back in 2016 he squared off with David Haye.
Haye was returning to the ring after three-and-a-half years away from the sport – and De Mori was confident he had the Brit's number. Doctors had told Haye to walk away from boxing, after he had his shoulder reconstructed, but insisting on a return, Haye battled to get his career back.

De Mori hinted he would try to exploit Haye's weakness of having six pins in his right shoulder. However, within 40 seconds of the bout, he had already been rocked.
Haye landed a jab and thereafter it was one-way traffic, with the Brit landing a huge overhand right to drop the Australian with 49 seconds left in the first. De Mori was out for the count before he even hit the canvas.

"The shoulder feels better than it has before," Haye said after the bout. "I have spent two years rehabbing this shoulder. I feel this new and improved version of me will go on and win heavyweight championships."
However, De Mori was not held back by the loss, and he has won 11 fights in a row, 10 by knockout or technical knockout, since he was taught a boxing lesson in London.
