Deontay Wilder Confirms Agreed Date for Anthony Joshua Fight

Long-Awaited Showdown

Deontay Wilder has finally confirmed that a deal is in place for him to fight Anthony Joshua. The two former heavyweight world champions have been in talks for almost five years, but now they are set to face off on the same night, albeit in separate bouts, in Saudi Arabia this Saturday.

Potential Showdown in March

If both Joshua and Wilder emerge victorious from their respective fights, a date of March 9 has been suggested for the highly anticipated showdown. Wilder expressed his excitement about working with the Saudi organizers, who have provided a clear schedule and financial structure for the event.

Nothing Standing in the Way

Wilder believes that there is now nothing stopping the fight from happening. He mentioned that the only potential obstacle would be if either fighter were to lose on December 23. However, Wilder is confident that all parties involved are in agreement and that the fight will take place in 2024.

Focus on Current Fights

While the Wilder-Joshua clash looms on the horizon, both fighters have important matches ahead of them. Wilder will be facing Joseph Parker, and Joshua is set to fight Otto Wallin. Both fighters will need to secure victories to keep their super-fight dreams alive.

Upsets and Chances

Wilder acknowledges that his opponents, Wallin and Parker, have a chance to upset the fight. He believes that it ultimately depends on their level of determination and hunger on the night of the fight. Wilder also acknowledges that he must bring his A-game and perform at his best to secure a victory.
