It’s another fight week for Anthony Joshua.
This coming Saturday, Dec. 23, Joshua will face off with very credible contender Otto Wallin as the headliner of a historic night of boxing inside of the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, titled “Day of Reckoning”.
The match will air on DAZN PPV and features some quality world champions and leading contenders of the sport, including WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol and former IBF cruiserweight champion Jai Opetaia.
And even though he is no longer a titleholder, Joshua (26-3, 23 KO’s) is still one of the biggest draws in the sport and always commands attention.
If successful against Wallin (26-1, 14 KO’s), looks as though Joshua could be in line to face former champion Deontay Wilder next.
Wilder also fights on same card this weekend, against former WBO champion Joseph Parker, so a lot will be determined after this weekend.
For now, we can look forward to seeing Joshua test himself against a very live Wallin, whose only defeat was a competitive effort vs. Tyson Fury in 2019.
