Anthony Joshua and Otto Wallin

Brirish-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua will be facing the Swedish heavyweight champions, Otto Wallin in a boxing match in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia tonight.

Tonight’s match will be his third fight in 2023, a continuation of his comeback and will be keen to get another victory when he faces the Swedish in the main event of the “Day of Reckoning” card.

After securing consecutive victories over Jermaine Franklin in April and Robert Helenius with a seventh-round knockout in August, Joshua is now gearing up to face a tough challenge in Wallin, who has proven himself as a formidable opponent, especially with his southpaw stance.

The only defeat on Wallin’s record to date came in 2019 against Tyson Fury, in between the Gypsy King’s first and second meetings with Wilder. Fury won by unanimous decision but the Swedish heavyweight certainly made it a harder night than expected for the lineal champ.

The southpaw opened up a huge cut above the Brit’s right eye in the third round. In the sixth round, a doctor had to inspect it and allowed Fury to carry on.

Joshua holds an impressive record of 26 victories and three losses, two of those defeats coming against unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. The British-Nigerian has proven that he has remarkable strength, technique, and unwavering determination and is the favourite to win this tricky tie.
