Eddie Hearn Reveals New Timeline for Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder Ahead of Blockbuster Saudi Card

, Eddie Hearn Reveals New Timeline for Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder Ahead of Blockbuster Saudi Card

Spring Showdown?

Eddie Hearn, the Matchroom chief, is hoping for a spring showdown between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in the next few weeks. The long-time rivals were originally set to fight in December, but Saudi boxing chiefs withdrew their interest in hosting the bout. However, both men will be in action on a Christmas card on December 23, with hopes of preserving their long-overdue showdown in March.

Chance for Redemption

Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, both of Nigerian descent, will be looking to dispatch their opponents, Otto Wallin and Joseph Parker respectively, to set the stage for their highly anticipated fight. Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, believes that victory for both fighters in December will make their showdown inevitable.

50th Anniversary Tribute

Eddie Hearn sees the grudge match between Joshua and Wilder as the perfect fight to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Rumble in the Jungle. Hearn has had discussions about staging the event in Nigeria, given Joshua's Nigerian heritage, and believes it would be an iconic moment for the sport.

Upcoming Fights

Anthony Joshua will face Otto Wallin, who went the distance with Tyson Fury in 2019, in his upcoming Saudi showdown. Wilder, on the other hand, will take on former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, following his brutal knockout of Robert Helenius last October.
