The boxing world is buzzing with anticipation as the highly anticipated "Day of Reckoning" event gears up to storm Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on December 23rd. This star-studded spectacle will feature heavyweight heavyweights Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Filip Hrgović, Otto Wallin, and Joseph Parker, promising an unforgettable night of thrilling matches and electrifying knockouts.
Deontay Wilder, the former WBC heavyweight champion, is eager to reclaim his lost titles and dominate the division once again. He expressed his excitement at the upcoming event, stating: "I'm ready for this. When people come to watch some heavyweight boxing, they come to see some excitement.
Most of them come to see the knockout. One thing about me is certain – when I come, I come to deliver." "Come on December 23rd, I'm also coming to do this. I have the same mission. I'm coming to finally get my titles back, and then unify all the heavyweight belts.
I have everything I need in life. But to come back and finish what I started earlier means everything in the world right now,'' he added.
A big crowd and a packed arena are expected
Wilder's co-headlining bout against New Zealand's Joseph Parker is expected to be a fierce clash of titans, with both fighters vying for a chance to secure a title shot.
Parker, a former WBO heavyweight champion, is determined to prove his worth and reclaim his place among the elite. The undercard will feature an equally impressive lineup of rising stars and seasoned veterans, ensuring a night of nonstop action and captivating fights.
Filip Hrgović, the reigning IBF heavyweight champion, will defend his title against an as-yet-unannounced opponent, while Otto Wallin, the Swedish heavyweight contender, will face a formidable challenge in his pursuit of a world title.
There is no doubt that in a month's time in Riyadh, a real "Day of Reckoning" awaits us, as the name of the event itself reads, and with such heavyweight names, hardly anyone will be disappointed with what they saw.
