Get ready for the showdown of a lifetime as Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder gear up to face each other in what could be the most monumental ultimate face-off in the history of the world of boxing.
The World Boxing Council (WBC) has confirmed that the prestigious heavyweight title will be up for grabs not only in the highly anticipated Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk bout on February 17, but also in an expected rematch. Excitement continues to build as boxing fans eagerly await these monumental clashes.
Additionally, if both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder emerge victorious in their upcoming fights, they could potentially face off in a thrilling final eliminator.
The eagerly awaited fights of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are just around the corner, as they gear up to face Otto Wallin and Joseph Parker, respectively, on December 23. If both fighters secure victories, they will be on a collision course to potentially face each other next year. Despite being the top-ranked contenders with the WBC, it seems that the heavyweight championship won’t be on the line in their match up.
The WBC President revealed the organisation’s efforts to make the highly anticipated Wilder-Joshua and Fury-Joshua fights a reality.
Sulaiman expressed the WBC’s continuous support, mediation, and encouragement to bring these matchups to fruition.
During Deontay Wilder’s reign as champion, there were promising moments when a Wilder-Joshua clash seemed imminent. The WBC wisely left the door open, allowing negotiations to progress. Similarly, with Tyson Fury, he was initially set to face Joshua, but circumstances led to a matchup with Usyk. The WBC remains committed to facilitating these blockbuster fights.
The WBC board of governors has given the green light for the foreseen Fury-Usyk fight in February, followed by a potential rematch. This means there are no obstacles from the WBC’s side for both bouts to take place. Additionally, the upcoming December 23 event is shaping up to be a natural WBC elimination tournament, with top-ranked contenders like Wilder, Joshua, Parker, and Wallin in the mix. After this event, the rankings are expected to undergo significant changes. Fans eagerly anticipate the possibility of Joshua and Wilder facing off next year, as they are considered favorites to win their respective fights.
