Anthony Joshua enters the ring for a third time in 2023 as he aims to rejuvenate his career at the Day of Reckoning in Saudi Arabia.


AJ faces Otto Wallin in a heavyweight showdown as part of a stacked card of action just before Christmas.

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk's delayed encounter left a void to fill but the promise of Joshua v Wallin followed by Deontay Wilder v Joseph Parker and Daniel Dubois v Jarrell Miller has set up a big evening of action.

Joshua defeated Jermaine Franklin in underwhelming circumstances before toppling Robert Helenius in a more convincing showdown in August.

If he topples Wallin and Wilder polishes off Parker, the path will be cleared for a Joshua-Wilder scrap in 2024.
