Day of Reckoning Saudi Arabia: Fights, times, undercard & more

Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder will fight on the same card in December as the 'Day of Reckoning' event takes place in Saudi Arabia.

The two former heavyweight world champions are on a collision course and are expected to meet next year, but first they must navigate their way past their next opponents.

Joshua comes up against Otto Wallin, while Wilder will face off against former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker.

Those are just two of the fights on an action packed night that forms one of the biggest fight cards in the history of boxing.

Here's everything you need to know about the blockbuster night of fighting action...

Day of Reckoning date

The Day of Reckoning card will take place on Saturday 23rd December. 

Day of Reckoning venue

The Day of Reckoning card will take place at the impressive Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, as part of Riyadh Season. As well as the boxing card, there are expected to be performances from a number of music artists on the night but full details are yet to be disclosed. 

Tyson Fury's win over Francis Ngannou at the end of October was the opening event of Riyadh Season, the fourth edition of the now annual event, and this year's showpiece will run for a number of months - potentially until March.

Fury is due to fight again as part of the festivities in a highly-anticipated unification bout with Oleksandr Usyk on 17th February. 

There are other sporting events taking place as well, including the Spanish Super Cup in January and the inaugural edition of the Riyadh Season Tennis Cup.  

How to watch Day of Reckoning

The card will be broadcast by DAZN. UK customers can view the pay-per-view event for £19.95.

Day of Reckoning line-up

The two headline events may not be title fights but there are a few belts being contested on the Day of Reckoning card. 

We've got a rundown of all the fights fans can look forward to.

Anthony Joshua v Otto Wallin

Joshua continued his bid to become a three-time world champion with a tough match-up against Sweden's Otto Wallin (26-1-1NC). 

Joshua heads into the fight after back-to-back wins, claiming a seventh round KO of Robert Helenius in his last bout.

Deontay Wilder v Joseph Parker

Wilder has fought just once since losing his third meeting with Tyson Fury in 2021. 

The 'Bronze Bomber' stopped Helenius in the first round in October 2022 but may face a bit more of a challenge from New Zealand's Joseph Parker, who is on a three-fight winning run.

Daniel Dubois v Jarrell Miller

Daniel Dubois was last seen losing out in his first world title shot as he was stopped in the ninth round by Usyk. 

The Briton came out of that clash with plenty of credit, however, and his attempt to engineer another title chance begins with a tough match-up against undefeated American Jarrell Miller.
