Anthony Joshua gears up for his third fight of the year, marking his most active stint in seven years. Fresh off his knockout victory over Robert Helenius in August, the 34-year-old aims for another commanding win ahead of pivotal bouts in 2024.

Scheduled for Saturday, December 23, the 12-round heavyweight clash between Joshua and Wallin promises an intense showdown at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. While Joshua secured victories against Wallin during their amateur encounters, their professional reunion poses a new challenge.

Wallin, with just one loss in 27 fights—a points defeat against Tyson Fury in 2019—holds a formidable record. Fury, after their bout, required 47 stitches and plastic surgery due to the damage inflicted by ‘All In.’

The event boasts a stacked undercard, making it one of the most anticipated in boxing history. Though specific timings are yet to be confirmed, the undercard action is slated to commence around 6 pm, with the main event ring-walks expected around 10 pm.

For those eager to follow the action, talkSPORT will provide live updates throughout fight week and on the night itself, hosting a live blog on talkSPORT.com. Access to the event is available via multiple platforms, including the talkSPORT website, app, DAB digital radio, smart speakers, and on AM frequencies 1089 or 1053.

Additionally, DAZN PPV will broadcast the event, with pricing and further details set to be announced soon. As the anticipation builds for this colossal clash between Joshua and Wallin, the boxing world awaits a night of electrifying action and potential career-defining moments.
