Let’s get ready to rumble, Saudi Arabia. The boxing superstars Anthony Joshua, Einar Wallin, Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder will be heading to The Day of Reckoning in Riyadh. Taking place on 23 December in Kingdom Arena, it looks set to be a blockbuster event.

The Day of Reckoning sees the two-time World Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua go up against WBA Continental heavyweight title holder Einar Wallin. The event also sees WBC heavyweight Deontay Wilder take on WBO heavyweight Joseph Parker. 

Given the line-up, it is expected that Antony and Deontay may also fight each other. When Antony was asked if he sees himself fighting Deontay, he replied: “Good luck to him. I 100 per cent see us fighting.”

Antony is from Watford, England. The British boxer has held the World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organisation titles. Deontay is from Alabama, United States. He made history when he was the first American to become a world heavyweight champion since 2007.
