Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder will share a ring in Saudi Arabia this weekend – just not against each other.
The heavyweights are part of a huge fight card in Riyadh, with Joshua boxing Otto Wallin and Wilder facing Joseph Parker at the Day of Reckoning event.
Joshua, 34, is seeking his third win of the year after beating Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helenius, while Wilder, 38, is fighting for the first time in 14 months. In October 2022, the American stopped Helenius in round one – six rounds quicker than “AJ” managed.
Joshua and Wilder appear to be on a collision course for a fight in 2024, but first the Briton and the “Bronze Bomber” must triumph in Riyadh, where Daniel Dubois, Dmitry Bivol, Filip Hrgovic and other top names are in action.
