According to reports, a fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder is very certainly going to happen.
Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, confirmed that the match would go place, with Saudi Arabia serving as the venue.
In an interview with The Mac, Hearn stated that the tantalizing confrontation would take place in December and that he expects a formal offer for his opponent to arrive in the following week.
Earlier this month, Joshua formally announced that he would be taking against Wilder in December.
In a video posted on social media, the British heavyweight was asked whether he would be taking on the American at the end of 2023, and he can be heard saying: ‘That’s what’s happening, you know what’s going on. ‘It’s public news we’re getting it down, throwing it down in December.’
After a seven-month hiatus, the 33-year-old made his ring return in April at the O2 arena, defeating American fighter Jermaine Franklin by unanimous decision.
A split-decision loss to Ukrainian heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk cost him his WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO titles. He had last competed in Saudi Arabia.
