Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder would be part of a mega fight card

The fight would be part of a mega card in Saudi Arabia where Tyson Fury would take on Oleksandr Usyk, and Anthony Joshua would take on Deontay Wilder on the same night.

Several of those involved have already confirmed that negotiations are underway for this mega card, including Deontay Wilder , his trainer Malik Scott , as well as Eddie Hearn , and now Anthony Joshua himself .

In recent days, Joshua told the English newspaper Metro that, on his side, the fight with Wilder is “95% agreed”.

Deontay Wilder also expressed interest in the Joshua fight , warning that he will knock him out in less than three rounds.

“I’m going to put it sweet,” Wilder told ES News. “I will give the Saudis their first knockout victim. I can deliver that victim to you. They haven’t had a lot of emotions knockout-wise. I am going to give you that blessing. With any Deontay Wilder fight you can expect that, but this one is going to be really special. I have something special that I am going to put to my blow in this one ”.
