TODAY Rasha Alkhamis is going drive to the fight. That ought to be routine enough, but in Saudi Arabia it’s new. “I never thought that I would actually witness this day. Even though I had my driving licence,” she told Boxing News. “I have an international driving licence, I never thought that one day, I would see myself driving to the boxing match.
“Driving a car, going to Anthony Joshua’s fight, parking my car, attending a concert. Who would ever have thought that this would actually happen? If you just take yourself four years back, I would say no, that would never happen.”
“I’d be overwhelmed with mixed emotions. I’ll be super happy because I’m going to witness this game in my country, at the same time I’m going to be full of mixed emotions, overwhelming,” she continued. “I wish I could actually describe what I’m going to feel.”
