The scheduled Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk match on December 23rd has been postponed, but a tremendous evening of high profile matches is still on. Frank Warren promises a "grand night of boxing," and Eddie Hearn confirms several boxers are ready for bouts on that date.
Insider Dan Rafael shares:
1. Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) might face Otto Wallin (26-1, 14 KOs). Joshua recently knocked out Robert Helenius, while Wallin won a decision against Murat Gassiev.
2. Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) could fight Joseph Parker (33-3, 23 KOs). Wilder knocked out Robert Helenius in 2022 and hasn't fought since. Parker's last match ended in a third-round knockout of Simon Kean.
3. Dmitry Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs) may meet Richard Rivera (25-1, 19 KOs) for the WBA light heavyweight title.
Boxing News also suggests Daniel Dubois might have a match that night, potentially against Jarrell Miller or Derek Chisora, marking his first fight following his knockout loss to Oleksandr Usyk.
