Fight Night Live - Updates

23:46
Anthony Joshua stops Otto Wallin in the fifth round

Wow, it's over - the doctors have waved the fight off at the end of the fifth round!

Absolutely ferocious work from Joshua who dents the face of Wallin with a massive left hook to the jaw. The Swede looks mashed and you could see clearly that his nose was broken.

That was exceptional stuff from AJ - possibly the best we have seen him since pre-Andy Ruiz.

Joshua is back, there's no doubt about that! What a night for the two-time heavyweight champion of the world.

This unlocks so many doors in 2024 for him.
 

23:42
Joshua v Wallin - Round 4

Wallin needs to find some rhythm here - it's all to easy for AJ at the minute.

The British fighter has been exceptional on the counter, teasing Wallin into wayward jabs and following up with crisp shots to the body and head.

AJ has comfortably won every round to date.
 

23:38
Joshua v Wallin - Round 3

AJ looks so focussed; he's almost robot like as he hunts down his prey!

Wallin lands a couple of shots just to remind Joshua that he's in a fight, but all of the good work clearly coming from Joshua.

He's working the body superbly well, landing a couple of cracking right hooks to the ribs after leading with a left jab.
 

23:34
Joshua v Wallin - Round 2

Another superb round for the two-time world champion, who is really getting down to business tonight.

Utilising the jab, working well on the inside and disrupting any offensive work from Wallin, Ben Davison will be delighted with the way things have panned out over the first six minutes.

More of the same for AJ in the third...
 

23:31
Joshua v Wallin - Round 1

Anthony Joshua takes hold of the centre of the ring and launches a couple of solid right jabs which test the resolve of Otto Wallin.

Some clear marking already showing up on the nose of the Swede, who has been forced straight on to the back foot by AJ's impressive start.

He looks lean, mean and focussed tonight!

Anthony Joshua v Otto Wallin Tips

Tebbutt's Tips

Anthony Joshua To Win in Rounds 7-12 @ 10/3 
Otto Wallin To Win Fight @ 3/1 

Will Joshua follow up on that TKO over Robert Helenius last time out? 

Otto Wallin is a very capable and crafty customer and will provide his own threat, but I don't really like Joshua by Decision at 6/5 which I think is slightly too short, and I could see AJ potentially breaking Wallin down in the second half of the fight. 

I think people look at Joshua with the muscles and the highlight reels and think that he's an explosive early puncher, but when he does tend to get rid of guys he does often grind them down and work them out, as we saw against Helenius. 

So, for me, if I'm betting on Anthony Joshua I'm looking at him in the second half of the fight - between Rounds 7 and 12 - at 10/3. 

I also think there's a lot of value in this fight for Wallin. Where is Joshua at? 

Particularly with a new coach and against a southpaw who he has spoken about not being the biggest fan of facing in the past. 

You can get odds of 3/1 for Wallin To Win by any method.
 

22:56
Up Next...

Wow, I'm still catching my breath!

But, it's time for the big one - Anthony Joshua versus Otto Wallin.

Everything is on the line in Saudi Arabia - AJ has to win this! His career is surely on the line tonight.
 

22:53
Joseph Parker beats Deontay Wilder by UD

The scorecards are in, and they read:

118-111
118-110
120-108

All three in favour of the winner, by UD, Joseph Parker!

Unbelievable stuff; the 9/2 underdog has stunned Riyadh, winning every single round on one of the judges' cards!
 

22:49
Wilder v Parker - Round 12

Oh my word, Joseph Parker has SURELY sent shockwaves through the heavyweight division!

What a smart, articulated and calculated performance by the former world champion!

I've got him down winning every single one of those 12 pulsating rounds.

That was sensational stuff, and now, we await the official scorecards...
 

22:45
Wilder v Parker - Round 11

Well, it's now or never for Deontay Wilder.

The 'Bronze Bomber' is on the verge of a huge defeat that would leave his world title aspirations in absolute tatters; and end any hope of a New Year dust-up with Anthony Joshua.

Parker needs to be smart now - he's won this fight barring a knockout.

He was shrewd with his work in the 11th round - showing his experience - and he has to do the same in the final three minutes.

Wilder is going to leave no stone unturned in the final round.
 

22:41
Wilder v Parker - Round 10

Parker has landed 46 power punches to Wilder's 17!

That tells you everything about the way this fight is going. Parker has executed Andy Lee's strategy to perfection, and he's just two rounds away from a career-best victory.

The New Zealander is reading everything; even Wilder's attempts to switch up his stance and seek an uppercut - Parker responds with a cracking counter strike.

Seriously impressive stuff.
 

22:37
Wilder v Parker - Round 9

Wilder is so vulnerable in there - he looks shot! Those legs look weak and his body looks heavy!

Our boxing expert Rob Tebbutt has called this fight to perfection thus far, and those of you jumping on the Parker train will be licking your lips right now.

Another sublime round for the New Zealander, but Wilder did end the round with a bit of success. He has got to take the centre of the ring and make things happen with just nine minutes of the fight remaining.
 

22:33
Wilder v Parker - Round 8

This fight has burst alight - Joseph Parker has just had Wilder on the rocks (and some).

A huge overhand right sent the 'Bronze Bomber' rocking on to the ropes and the New Zealander sniffed blood - he went hell for leather for the stoppage, but Wilder bit hard on his gumshield to see the round through,

What a fight Parker is producing. Superb stuff.
 

22:29
Wilder v Parker - Round 7

Wilder really starting to show more intent, but again, it was Parker who landed the scoring points - including a huge right which rocked the American.

Wilder should have plenty left in the tank here, and he really needs to put his foot on the gas over the final five rounds!

Parker has taken every single round for me, and we are now at the point where Wilder knows he needs that KO.
 

22:25
Wilder v Parker - Round 6

Parker gaining even more confidence as he lands a cracking body shot in the final 10 seconds of the round.

He's taken every round up to now, and Wilder has got to start looking to set-up that big shot!

He can't afford to keep dancing around, and offering what he is - he needs to be the aggressor, because Parker is always going to win the tactical battle.
 

22:21
Wilder v Parker - Round 5

Parker continuing to score the point in the fifth round; landing with success on both the jaw and body.

Wilder is looking for the knockout for sure, but he's not doing anything to set it up - thus allowing Parker to win the rounds.

I have him five up here, but as we know, that means very little against the 'Bronze Bomber'. One big shot is all it takes!

FYI, Parker is the new 4/6 favourite here...
 

22:17
Wilder v Parker - Round 4

Those little sparks in round one to three have ignited a fire in the fourth...

Wilder and Parker both land with success; crisp right hands doing the work for Wilder, with solid body work opening the gates for Parker.

Parker has been very intelligent with his work, but is starting to fling himself forward into heavy attacks, and he's picked up yet another round.
 

22:13
Wilder v Parker - Round 3

A superb double jab from Parker backs Wilder on to the ropes - his balance looked a little wobbly there, and Team Parker will take ocnfidence from that.

One or two moments for Wilder too, who comes close with a couple of huge rights, but Parker just about evades them.

A close round, but another, for me, in the New Zealander's favour.
 

22:09
Wilder v Parker - Round 2

Not a great deal of action to report on in the second round, as Parker con tinues to hold the middle of the ring.

Wilder more than happy to bide his time here - he's not looking for that early KO; well, he certainly isn't chasing it.

Parker taking advantage of these quieter rounds - one or two little flurries probably earning him the rounds on the cards.
 

22:05
Wilder v Parker - Round 1

Joseph Parker springs forward and takes hold of the centre of the ring - somewhat intelligently against the tall, gangly and explosive Deontay Wilder.

Wilder takes his time, dancing around the outside of the squared circle, remaining calm, cool and collected.

But, Parker lands a couple of solid jabs with his right hand; one of which flung Wilder back on to the ropes.

Deontay Wilder v Joseph Parker Tips

Tebbutt's Tips

Joseph Parker To Win Fight @ 4/1 
Deontay Wilder To Win in Rounds 7-12 @ 2/1 

I do feel that there's plenty of value with Joseph Parker To Win via any method at 4/1. 

He's been the busier, more active fighter and is a very good operator in his own right, and will go into the bout full of confidence of springing a shock against Deontay Wilder. 

However, if you are backing Wilder, and it is difficult to see past him, then you can get 2/1 on the American to win in Rounds 7-12. I could see this panning out similarly to Wilder's fight with Luis Ortiz, with Parker winning the rounds early and being the technically more proficient fighter before Wilder as he has done many times in the past unleashing that big right hand to get the knockout. 

For me, though, I've just got a funny feeling about this fight. 

Where has Deontay Wilder been? What's he been doing? He's at the stage of his career where things could go overnight. 

This is why I believe there is value in Parker for this fight.
 

21:25
Up Next...

Six fights down, and two to go...

We start with the hard-hitting 'Bronze Bomber', Deontay Wilder, as he takes on the classy and technical operator Joseph Parker.

How's it going to go though?

Will Wilder get that devastating knockout that he craves or will the New Zealander evade that big shot and win a points decision?

We'll soon find out!
 

21:22
Dmitry Bivol wins by UD

All three judges score the bout 120-107 in favour of Dmitry Bivol.

What a fighter he is!
 

21:19
Bivol v Arthur - Round 12

Huge credit to Lyndon Arthur who goes the full 12 rounds with one of the sport's pound-for-pound stars!

Dmitry Bivol wins it by a landslide, there's no doubt, but Arthur did well to hang in there and survive a couple of real heavy assaults - with the referee so close to waving the fight off on a couple of occasions.

We await the official scorecards, but for me, Bivol won every round.
 

21:15
Bivol v Arthur - Round 11

Dmitry Bivol comes so close to closing the show in style as he launches a sustained assault on the head and body of Arthur, eventually sending him to the canvas, only for the bell to come to his rescue.

The referee looked so close to waving the fight off there, but Arthur survives, just about!
 

21:11
Bivol v Arthur - Round 10

Arthur on the ropes again, but he beats his chest and tells Bivol to bring it on!

If the Russian is guilty of anything, then it's not pressing his foot on the gas and giving the referee a decision to make.

He gets Arthur to the edge, and then almost allows him off the hook.
 

21:07
Bivol v Arthur - Round 9

Bivol responds well and reasserts himself as the aggressor - but he just isn't being clever enough when they are in close.

He needs to work the uppercut or the hook better - he's still trying to jab, but the distance isn't right to land anything that will trouble Arthur.

Still, another round in the bag for him, and his lead is looking insurmountable now, in terms of a judges' decision.
 

21:03
Bivol v Arthur - Round 8

Oooo, Arthur lands a cracking body shot which rocks Bivol, and temporarily sends him back!

That was just what he needed - but he has to now find a way to follow that up in the ninth round. There's a passage there now - with that right hand to the kidney!

Can he expose that potential weakness further?
 

20:59
Bivol v Arthur - Round 7

Bivol continues to load up on the ropes, seeking a way to break the guard of Arthur.

He's trying his best to make it physical and prise an opening, but the British fighter is standing firm and frustrating the Russian thus far.

He's gone upstairs, downstairs and around the guard, but so far, he's struggled to find that powerful clean shot.
 

20:55
Bivol v Arthur - Round 6

Those crisp right hands still landing at will down the throat of Arthur, but there were some signs that the Englishman is finding his feet.

He's moving well, throwing nice body shots and retaining a good, tight high guard - but if he wants to win the fight, then he has to be a little less cautious.

That's far easier said than done however...

 

20:51
Bivol v Arthur - Round 5

Arthur is still trying to figure out his opponent, and he could be there a long time trying to do that!

He's gradually working his way into the fight though, albeit without really causing him any concern whatsoever.

Bivol is ahead widely on the cards - there's no doubt about that.
 

20:47
Bivol v Arthur - Round 4

The confidence is flowing through the veins of Bivol, who is in total control here.

Arthur has offered little, and in fairness, it's not his fault, He's just up against an opponent who is superior in every way.

Arthur maybe needs to get that right hand into play a little more - he needs to use the jab to keep Bivol back a tad.
 

20:43
Bivol v Arthur - Round 3

Another big round for Bivol, who absolutely peppers the head and body of the helpless Arthur.

His movement is incredible, and you can see the concern etched all over the face of Arthur as he tries to figure out the problematic puzzle of the seriously impressive Russian.

Canelo Alvarez had no answer to him at this weight, so what hope does the Manchester fighter have?
 

20:39
Bivol v Arthur - Round 2

That trademark laser straight right hand of Bivol is wrecking havoc in Saudi Arabia - he looks so aggressive and so switched on.

Arthur is no mug whatsoever, but he looks like a rabbit in the headlines as he struggles to contain the power and speed of the Russian.

What a start from the defending light-heavyweight champion; seriously impressive stuff.
 

20:36
Bivol v Arthur - Round 1

Both fighters take the first round to assess the other out, and instantly you can see that superb stance of Bivol giving him opportunities in the corner.

He almost unlocks the door immediately with that trademark wide stance, utilising his jab to superb effect as he keeps Arthur on the back foot.

The English fighter threw a handful of shots as he tried his utmost to shutout Bivol there - he really is a special talent.
 

20:27
It's fight time...

Here we go then, Dimitry Bivol and Lyndon Arthur have taken to the ring, and we are seconds away from fight time.

Can Arthur produce one of the biggest shocks in British boxing history? Can Dmitry Bivol re-discover his knockout touch?

It's incredibly been six years since he last stopped an opponent - could that be about to change?

We're even-money on a Bivol 'KO, TKO or Disqualification' success...

Unbeaten light heavyweight star Dmitry Bivol defends his WBA title next as he takes on Britain's Lyndon Arthur. 

Arthur has been on an impressive rebuild since losing a rematch to Anthony Yarde in 2021, picking up four successive wins, but this challenge represents a HUGE step up in class for the challenger.

Arthur is 14/1 to pull off the shock of all shocks, with Bivol a massive 1/33 favourite.
 

19:50
Dubois stops Miller in Round 10

What a performance from Dubois - who shows heart, determination and a real finishing quality to stop Miller in the final 30 seconds.

Wow, Miller took a real beating there, and how I remained upright, I have no idea!

A gameplan executed to perfection by Dubois, who becomes the first fighter to beat and stop the 333lb American monster.

Thankfully the referee stepped in to save Miller's bacon, but wow, superb stuff from Dubois!!!
 

19:46
Dubois v Miller - Round 9

Another round in the bag for Dubois, and just three minutes left for Jarrell Miller to somehow find the power shot he needs to flip this fight on its head.

He needs the stoppage, there's absolutely no doubt. The long straight shots from Dubois are doing so much damage, and truth be told, it's been so straightforward for him.

For me, this is the best performance of his professional career to date. He's been so articulated with his work.

Just one more round to see through.
 

19:42
Dubois v Miller - Round 8

Dubois boxing perfectly, and confidently, now. He's fighting so well on both the front foot and back foot - all of his work is superbly telegraphed.

Miller is trying to offer something, but Dubois is too sharp and is landing far more frequently.

Another word of warning from the referee though regarding those headbutts - although it certainly didn't look intentional.
 

19:38
Dubois v Miller - Round 7

Another round in the favour of Dubois, who is draining the life out of Miller with his sharp, quick footwork.

Miller looks so sluggish in there, and he's struggling to gain any real foothold on proceedings against a lighter and more spring-footed opponent.

He's likely going to need a knockout to win this fight, and he's now 17/2 to do just that!
 

19:34
Dubois v Miller - Round 6

A good, solid round for Dubois - working the jab really well and re-asserting control of the fight.

One word of warning though, he has been warned by the referee for leading with his head, and there were another couple of occasions that the Englishman could have been pulled up for being a tad too aggressive with his head.

Dubois into 1/3 now to win the fight.
 

19:30
Dubois v Miller - Round 5

Blood starting to run from the mouth of Miller, who was more on the back foot in the fifth frame after his good work in four.

Dubois came out all guns blazing after a stern talking to from his cornermen, and looked to utilise his jab to good effect.

Miller is clearly tiring himself, and the pair were maybe guilty of throwing far too many lazy punches in the final 60 seconds of the round.

It could come down to conditioning here, and in that regard, you'd have to favour Dubois.
 

19:26
Dubois v Miller - Round 4

As I said, Dubois is really starting to tire and Miller is becoming more aggressive, and more accurate as the fights progresses.

Dubois is worryingly starting to throw some really lacklustre and lazy jabs, and Miller is able to counter them with relative ease.

Undoubtedly, the American's most profitable round to date.
 

19:22
Dubois v Miller - Round 3

Both men taste leather in the third - Miller lands a couple of clubbing right hands, whilst Dubois finds accuracy with a pinpoint uppercut through the guard of the American.

Not a lot in this at the minute, but you do sense that Miller's slower start should enable him to burst into life when Dubois begins to tire if and when we get to the latter rounds.
 

19:18
Dubois v Miller - Round 2

A nice stiff jab from Dubois, which rattled Miller, was the pick of the shots in the second round, but you do wonder how long 'DDD' will be able to sustain his aggressive and front-footed approach.

You can see the energy zapping out of him already as he tries to hold and push a man 100lbs heavier than he is.

Miller took over a little bit in the final 30 seconds and that could signal a change in momentum in this fight.

Dubois remains the 8/15 favourite.
 

19:14
Dubois v Miller - Round 1

Dubois on the attack from the off, jabbing well, looking for the upper cut and landing plenty too.

Nothing to seriously trouble Miller, who has tried to walk through Dubois' work in the first three rounds, but opting not to offer any of his own attacks.

One or two signs that Miller could unleash a counter shot in the dying embers of the round, but he opted to keep his guard and bide his time.

Anthony Joshua v Otto Wallin: Industry Predictions

Some of boxing's biggest names give us their thoughts and predictions as Anthony Joshua goes up against Otto Wallin in the highly-anticipated 'Day of Reckoning' bill-topping bout on Saturday.

Leigh Wood (Professional Boxer)
I think you will see AJ be more clear and decisive with what he's doing in there. He knows what he needs to do. A lot of people say AJ's looking more like his old self and that will be because of him being more clear and decisive.

Liam Smith (Professional Boxer)
Otto Wallin is a good fighter but I think Anthony Joshua, if he's firing, is very good with southpaws. If he's aggressive enough and not really gun shy, I think Joshua wins and he wins well.

David Coldwell (Boxing Trainer)
AJ is not an elite heavyweight. And if he wants to be an elite heavyweight, again, then he's got to go out there and do a job that an elite heavyweight would do to a guy that's a good heavyweight.
