Anthony Joshua will fight for the third time this year on Saturday, as he boxes Otto Wallin in Saudi Arabia.

The heavyweight bout is expected to headline the Day of Reckoning event, which also features Deontay Wilder’s fight with Joseph Parker and numerous other high-profile match-ups.

Joshua, 34, beat Jermaine Franklin on points in April before knocking out Robert Helenius in August, and now the Briton seeks victory over Wallin – a former opponent of Tyson Fury.

In 2019, Wallin nearly stopped Fury after inflicting a nasty cut on the heavyweight champion. However, Fury battled to a points win, handing the Swede the only loss of his professional career to date. Can Joshua, who twice outpointed Wallin as an amateur, triumph over the 33-year-old again this weekend?
