Anthony Joshua will be looking to win hid third fight in a row when he faces fellow heavyweight contender Otto Wallin in Saudi Arabia.
‘AJ’ comes into the showdown off the back of a sensational knockout win against Robert Helenius. A win will most likely set up a clash with Deontay Wilder – with the bout already being agreed for Match 9, 2024.
Wallin defeated Murat Gassiev via split decision in his last fight. The 33-year-old, whose only defeat came against Tyson Fury, will certainly give the Brit some problems inside the ring.
Deontay Wilder is also scheduled to compete on the same night. The American heavyweight will face Joseph Parker in what promises to be an epic watch. The likes of Dmitry Bivol and Daniel Dubois also feature on the historic card.
