What May Stop Anthony Joshua Vs Wilder Heavyweight Bout


Anthony Joshua versus Deontey Wilder is on of the long-awaited heavyweight matchup the world has been looking forward to see.

Boxing purists love to see heavyweights battle it out in the ring.

It’s why so many are so excited to see Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk lock horns for undisputed glory next month.

It’s also why a bunch of fans have wanted to see Anthony Joshua face Deontay Wilder for a long time now.

The fight has been rumored to be in the works for several years, and was slated to happen after both boxers fought on the same card on December 23.

But Wilder’s loss to Joseph Parker put the Joshua fight on thin ice. Now, it appears it may be happening once again, but once again Wilder will need to come through beforehand.

Joshua vs Wilder is contingent on Zhilei Zhang fight

If Wilder defeats Zhilei Zhang on June 1, it would trigger a potential Wilder vs Joshua battle in September. And the venue being talked about is Wembley Stadium in London.

Joshua is coming off of a resounding KO win over Francis Ngannou, and is likely to wait until September before taking another fight.

Joshua and Wilder battling in Wembley would make for quite the spectacle, which has become the norm for the top fighters in recent years.
