An unprecedented lineup on a single night of boxing, the ‘Day of Reckoning’ will see two-time unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua go up against Otto Wallin as the pair close in on challenging for world title honours, while former WBO world champion Joseph Parker takes on the Bronze Bomber and former WBC world title holder, Deontay Wilder, with IBF No.1 contender Filip Hrgovic fighting Mark De Mori in another heavyweight shootout.
WBA World light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol will make an 11th defence of his title against Lyndon Arthur and IBF World cruiserweight champion Jai Opetaia will make a second defence of his belt against Ellis Zorro.
Back with the heavyweights, the fearsome Arslanbek Makhmudov will face the European champion Agit Kabayel. Recent world title challenger Daniel Dubois will bid to put his name back up in lights when he enters into a Battle of the Giants against Big Baby Jarrell Miller and top heavyweight contender Frank Sanchez will close in on a world title shot if he can overcome Junior Fa in Riyadh.
