Saturday sees the much anticipated heavyweight title rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, it's being billed as the Clash on the Dunes. Ruiz became the first heavyweight champion in boxing history of Mexican descent when he caused one of the greatest upsets by beating Joshua in New York. Eight months on, the British superstar looks to regain his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in what is being described as a career defining fight for Joshua. The actual location of the fight has attracted criticism from Human Rights Groups, we hear the concerns from Amnesty International on why sporting athletes should be aware of the country’s poor human rights record. However, the Saudi Sports Minister has outlined his vision to make Saudi Arabia the home of live sport with many other high profile events being staged in that part of the world and how they are making progress to their poor record. We’ll also be live in Saudi Arabia with our reporter Ade Adedoyin.

Supersisters: The fight to inspire
In 1979 a young girl named Melissa Rich asked her mother Lois why there were no women on trading cards. So Lois decided to produce her own set called 'supersisters: 72 trading cards showcasing women from all areas of life designed to inspire young girls to do things they might not have known were open to them. From politicians to scientists, artists to athletes, the cards made female role models viable
