This match will signify Joshua’s comeback to the ring after his knockout victory over Robert Helenius in London back in August. However, the highly anticipated showdown between ‘AJ’ and Wilder will have to wait, as Wilder opts to take on Parker instead in Riyadh.

Wilder has been out of the ring since his impressive first-round knockout against Helenius in October 2022. If both of these accomplished heavyweights secure victories in their upcoming matches, there’s potential for a thrilling showdown in the ring next year. During the event’s press conference, Wilder expressed optimism, saying, “hopefully soon we can get it on in the ring.”

As questions turned Joshua’s way at the event, the atmosphere heated up, especially after a fiery exchange with Jarrell Miller who will be fighting Daniel Dubois on the undercard. Adding to the intensity, Wallin claimed that Joshua “had his peak around 2018” and is currently “on his way down,” sparking a fired-up response from Joshua.

“People talking about how I’ve peaked have never even seen a peak in their whole career,” Joshua said.
“I’m looking forward to delivering my message to Otto Wallin on December 23.
“I can’t predict the future but I know where I want to go, I know what I want to do.

“I’m a man of my word, I stand firm with what I believe, and I believe I’m going to be a three-time heavyweight champion of the world.

“My first step to that is putting on a demolition job against Otto Wallin.”

He continued: “I’m determined to win and I’m determined to get back to my peak, if that’s what they want to call it.”

The prospect of a future encounter with Wilder emerged during the press conference, and the American expressed openness to the idea. “It’s good to be in the same room with him [Joshua], to see him face to face,” remarked Wilder, hinting at the potential excitement of a future showdown in the ring.

“It’s been a long time coming. I wish you nothing but the best, bro, but hopefully soon we can get it on in the ring and give the people what they want once and for all. I wish you nothing but the best, even if it doesn’t happen. But I believe it will; it’s about that time.”

The former WBC heavyweight champion, Wilder, has an impressive record, with only two losses from 46 fights in his decorated career, both against Tyson Fury in 2020 and 2021. He has won 43 matches and drawn one.

“It’s been a journey for me. I’m very excited to be here; what a magnificent card we have, so many warriors on this card. It’s overwhelming to be in the room with so many other fighters, some you’ve met in camp, some you’ve competed against, and some you’re looking forward to competing against in the future,” said Wilder.

“I’m ready to go. When people come to see heavyweight boxing, most of all they come to see a knockout. And one thing’s for sure, when I come, that’s what I come to deliver. Come December 23, I’m on the same mission, to gain my title back and to unify the division; that’s my main goal.”

New Zealander Parker, a former WBO heavyweight champion from 2016 to 2018, holds a 33-3 record and is on a three-fight winning streak since losing to Joe Joyce in September 2022.

There is British interest on the undercard as well, with Lyndon Arthur facing Dmitry Bivol for the WBA light heavyweight title, and Ellis Zorro taking on IBF cruiserweight belt holder Jai Opetaia.
