Anthony Joshua's rematch against unified heavyweight champion AndyRuiz Jr will take place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on December 7.
Ruiz Jr (33-1, 22 KOs) stunned Joshua to capture his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in one of the biggest heavyweight upsets of all time at a sold-out Madison Square Garden in NY on June 1.
Promoter Eddie Hearn had already confirmed three days after the bout that Joshua had triggered the contracted rematch clause for what he called a "must-win" fight for the 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion.
With the fight now set to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, an open-air venue will be constructed specifically for the contest - after talks of the bout potentially taking place in New York's Madison Square Garden.
Joshua is not the first British star to fight in Saudi Arabia as a year ago Callum Smith beat George Groves to become the WBA super-middleweight champion and win the World Boxing Super Series.
