‘Day of Reckoning’ Media Workout Highlights: Joshua, Wilder, Bivol And More

The ‘Day of Reckoning’ is a step closer as the fighters held their media workout.

Anthony Joshua will headline against the Swedish southpaw Otto Wallin. A victory potentially sets up a fight with Deontay Wilder after reports indicate a deal is in place for March 9, 2024. Wallin’s only loss came against Tyson Fury. Joshua chose to walk around the ring rather than engage in a public workout.

Wilder takes on Joseph Parker in the co-main event. The Bronze Bomber was aggrieved at not headlining. After stopping Robert Helenius in his last bout, the American has plans on doing the same this Saturday. Parker is a sparring partner for Tyson Fury, so that knowledge may be useful. Dmitry Bivol takes on Lyndon Arthur in an 11th defense of his title. The winner is in line to face Artur Beterbiev or Callum Smith for undisputed.

Joshua and Wilder are the main attraction, but Eddie Hearn is not against Wilder losing to Parker. A defeat would be catastrophic, delaying a fight that has been discussed since 2018. Despite Wilder’s $50 million offer, it never got made as both boxers lost their world titles. This created a narrative that Joshua ducked Wilder, but Hearn was open to Wilder losing. 

“He [Wilder] better be switched on because he’ll lose to Joseph Parker on December 23rd. He can punch like a mule, but Joseph is up for this fight, and I know he’s had his defeats and stuff like that. Deontay, great fighter. Make sure you win. I like Joseph Parker. Secretly, I hope he wins, but I don’t really because then we lost the [Joshua vs. Wilder] fight, but whatever. Make sure you win, we’ll win, and you’ll get your wish, and you’ll get beat,” Hearn said
