The upcoming “Day of Reckoning” boxing event is a reminder to Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder of the unpredictability that often accompanies plans in the heavyweight division. This event in Saudi Arabia was originally earmarked for Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury’s highly anticipated undisputed heavyweight title fight. However, due to unforeseen circumstances and Fury’s intense clash with MMA star Francis Ngannou in their “Battle of the Baddest” showdown, the plans had to change.
Reportedly, Wilder and Joshua have tentatively agreed to a face-off in Riyadh on March 9, yet before that, they each have significant challenges to conquer this weekend.
Anthony Joshua takes the main stage against Otto Wallin, a former amateur rival who suffered his sole professional defeat against Fury in 2019, leaving the Gypsy King with a severe cut requiring 47 stitches.
Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder is set to battle former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in the co-main event. Wilder has seen limited action since his trilogy bout defeat against Fury, having boxed only one round in over two years.
This event doesn’t solely revolve around Joshua and Wilder. It features a lineup of elite heavyweight contenders. Daniel Dubois aims to rebound from his world title loss against Usyk by facing Jarrell Miller. Filip Hrgovic is anticipated to dominate against Marc di Mori, previously defeated by David Haye.
In a significant showdown, Arslanbek Makhmudov clashes with European champion Agit Kabayel, where one of their unbeaten records will likely end. Additionally, the undefeated Frank Sanchez will take on Junior Fa.
The event extends beyond heavyweight matchups, featuring world title bouts. Dmitry Bivol defends his WBA light heavyweight crown against Lyndon Arthur, and Jai Opetaia, the lineal cruiserweight king, confronts Ellis Zorro.
