Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs), a former unified heavyweight champion, is set to make his third appearance in the ring this year. He is coming off two impressive victories over Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helenius, aiming to maintain his winning streak after tough losses to Oleksandr Usyk.
Otto Wallin (26-1, 14 KOs) is known for his formidable challenge against Tyson Fury in 2019, where he went the distance but suffered a unanimous decision loss. Since then, he has secured six consecutive wins, including a notable decision victory over Murat Gassiev in September.

Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs), the former WBC titleholder, last fought in October 2022, securing a first-round knockout victory over Robert Helenius. This match will mark his return to the ring after his trilogy bout loss to Fury in October 2021.
Joseph Parker (33-3, 23 KOs) claimed the WBO title in 2016 and defended it twice before losing to Joshua in 2018. He has since demonstrated his resilience, winning two of his last three fights by stoppage.
Additionally, Dmitry Bivol is set to defend his WBA light heavyweight title against Lyndon Arthur, while Daniel Dubois will take on Jarrell Miller in a 10-round heavyweight bout, adding to the excitement of this action-packed fight card.
