Anthony Joshua v Otto Wallin: Fight date, ring-walk time, undercard & how to watch

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua will be hoping to move a step closer to another title shot when he goes up against Otto Wallin later this year.

This will be the first time these two have met in the professional ranks, but they did face each other twice as amateurs and it was the Brit who came out on top both times - in the Haringey Box Cup final in 2010 and in Stockholm in 2011.

After back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk that saw AJ lose his WBA, IBF and WBO belts before then failing to win them back in a rematch, the 2012 Olympic champion has responded with victories over Jermaine Franklin Jr and Robert Helenius.

Since giving Tyson Fury 47 stitches back in 2019, Wallin has chalked up six straight victories and he will be a dangerous opponent for Joshua.
