Who has more to lose: Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder? Previewing Day of Reckoning boxing event on Fightin’ Words

Fight fans are waiting with anticipation as we get closer to the “Day of Reckoning” boxing event from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on December 23. Some of the best fighters in the world compete on one card, including heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder

While Wilder and Joshua won’t fight one another (yet), they will still be competing against some top talent in former contender Otto Wallin and former champion Joseph Parker, respectively.

Not only are they fighting, but so will Dmitry Bivol, the 2022 Sporting News Men’s Boxer of the Year. Jarrell Miller, known for his multiple suspensions following failed drug tests, also competes against Daniel Dubois. 

Is this a must-win fight for Daniel Dubois? Miller, who started the chaos in the heavyweight division after getting nixed from a contest against Joshua in 2019, has seen better days. It is a crossroads fight for the former contender in Dubois.

Meanwhile, will we see the best version of Wilder, who has only fought in one round in over a year? He’s not only working against Parker but trainer Andy Lee, who has worked with Tyson Fury in three fights against “The Bronze Bomber.”

Wilder needs a win, as does Joshua, rumored to face one another in March if both win their fights. Joshua fights a man in Wallin who almost beat Fury. He did lose against Fury, but Wallin has won six in a row since. Which Joshua will show up on fight night? 

On this episode of Fightin’ Words, The Sporting News’ Andreas HaleKarisa Maxwell, and Tom Gray (who is live from Saudi Arabia) talk through the following topics: 

  • Predicting the winners of the entire main card
  • Wondering who has more to lose: Joshua or Wilder 
  • Looking into what the future holds for Joshua and Wilder if they lose or if their performances aren’t up to par
