Joshua to face Wilder in December

It is hard to become a champion, and he did it, so I have to respect that, the BritishNigerian said.

Former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has said that a potential fight with Deontay Wilder is 95 per cent done on his side and could take place in December if the deal goes through.

Talks are ongoing over a proposed tournament in Saudi Arabia which could also involve Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk fight on the same card.

Joshua claimed his first win in over two years after defeating Jermaine Franklin in his last fight on April 1, having previously fallen to two consecutive losses to Usyk in 2021 and 2022.

He then announced he would not return to the ring until December, ruling out a summer showdown with either Fury or Dillian Whyte.

Joshua now looks set to face off against the former WBC World Champion Wilder at the end of the year in a fight that could have happened when they were both champions.

From my experiences with Saudi, if they say they are going to do something, they are more than likely going to do it.

So, thats one end of it, Joshua told Metro.

And then you let the other guys do what they do.
