Deontay Wilder: "they say I'm taking the biggest risk because they're looking past Parker - but I'm not. "

On December 23 in Saudi Arabia, Deontay Wilder is stepping back into the ring against Joseph Parker in a matchup of former heavyweight world champions. Despite several heavyweight fights on the card, Wilder feels that he’s taking the biggest risk, emphasizing that while others might be looking past Parker, he certainly is not.

“I think it’s me. I’m taking the biggest risk because they’re looking past Parker – but I’m not. Joshua is the biggest fight in combat sport, period,” Wilder said to TNT Sports. Known for his powerful punches, Wilder acknowledges the pressure and anticipation surrounding a potential showdown with Joshua.

Parker, entering the ring for the fourth time this year, is on a three-fight win streak since his 2022 loss to Joe Joyce. Despite concerns about Wilder’s inactivity, Parker welcomes the challenge: “A lot of people are wary of him and scared of the right hand that he possesses, but I’m all in, I’m all for it – I love to challenge myself.”

Arranged swiftly, the fight doesn’t bother Wilder in terms of training time: “Not at all. I’m just reserved, fresh right now, and just ready to go. Although this is a short-notice fight that we both have, I’m a world-class athlete. This is nothing short of what I’m used to,” Wilder said.
