Anthony Joshua, Otto Wallin, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker are set to put on an incredible show on Saturday evening, and we’ve got all the details on how to watch the action.
In one of the best cards we’ve seen in a long time, the boxing community will gather around their sofas for an epic night of entertainment. And while some are understandably disgusted with the event taking place in Saudi Arabia, it appears the money has spoken with Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn teaming up to deliver a bill with a plethora of interesting match-ups.
Much to the infuriation of the fans, Joshua and Wilder aren’t fighting each other. However, they’re both taking part in bouts with an undeniable sense of jeopardy.
The Brit has a tough challenge ahead in the form of Swedish southpaw, Wallin. Despite beating the awkward operator twice in the amateurs, having pushed Tyson Fury to his limits and recently picking a career-best victory over Murat Gassiev, the 33-year-old is confident he has the minerals to upset the applecart.
And in possibly the bigger of the two fights, Wilder will take on Parker in a clash between two former world champions. Coming into the clash on the back of two fantastic performances, the Kiwi is gunning for the underdog victory. Blessed with remarkable hand speed and a sensational boxing IQ, he believes that it’s his time to finally put it all together in the ring. However, with his opponent carrying the heaviest right hand in boxing history, he can’t take his eye off the ball, even for a second, making this a fight fans can’t afford to miss.

Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder
‘The Bronze Bomber’ has assured the fans that his blockbuster collision with Joshua isn’t too far away.
In an interview with Instant Casino, he said: “I don’t see anything stopping this fight happening between me and AJ at this time. I don’t know all the plans that are ahead, but what I’ve seen so far and as of right now, there’s nothing stopping it. The only thing that could potentially stop it is either one of us losing on December 23. That’s the only thing I can see stopping it. Other than that, everything else that stopped it happening before like his manager and promoter, I don’t think that problem exists at this moment in time. Everyone is in agreement and was on board last time I spoke with everyone. If and when we both win on December 23, you all can look forward to a great 2024, Wilder vs Joshua.”
