In his last fight which took place earlier this year in Budapest, Patel fought former world title challenger Ronald Ramos (41-17-4) and knocked him out in the fourth round.

Patel said, “I’ve been fighting all over the world. I’m looking forward to my next stop in Saudi Arabia.

“This is a fabulous opportunity to showcase my skills on such a high profile event. I will rise to the occasion.”
