Joshua and Wilder face interim fights before potential bout

Heavyweight boxing champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are reportedly in talks with separate opponents to fight on the same card in Saudi Arabia. The much-anticipated bout between the two superstars was previously planned but fell through when Saudi backers withdrew their support. Now, Joshua and Wilder are looking to return to the ring for interim fights before negotiations for their showdown can resume.

Saudi Arabia still wants a show on December 23

Despite the postponement of the heavyweight unification fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, Saudi Arabia is still keen on hosting a boxing event on December 23. According to reports, Joshua and Wilder could potentially fight in individual bouts on the same card, giving fans a thrilling night of heavyweight boxing action.

Potential opponents for Joshua and Wilder

Anthony Joshua is said to be in talks with former sparring partner Otto Wallin for his next fight. Wallin famously gave Tyson Fury 47 stitches and nearly won by TKO before losing on points. If Joshua defeats Wallin, it could lead to a title fight against Filip Hrgovic, who is lined up for an IBF interim title bout. On the other hand, Deontay Wilder is reportedly in talks with ex-WBO champion Joseph Parker, who recently won on Fury's Saudi undercard.

It remains to be seen if these fights will come to fruition, but boxing fans are eagerly awaiting the return of both Joshua and Wilder to the ring. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
