Deontay Wilder vs Joseph Parker radio coverage: How to listen to fight for free | Boxing | Sport

Deontay Wilder will make his long-overdue return to the ring tonight when he faces fellow heavyweight Joseph Parker in Saudi Arabia. The Bronze Bomber has not thrown a punch in anger since he knocked out Robert Helenius in October 2022, but he will be part of an exciting double headline bill when he takes on New Zealander Parker tonight.

The billing is shared with another former world champion Anthony Joshua who takes on Otto Wallin in a star-studded Riyadh event title ‘Day of Reckoning’.

Should both Wilder and Joshua emerge victorious from their respective fights, then they are seemingly on a collision course to face each other in a final eliminator match next year that will determine who faces the winner of the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk unification clash in February.

Deontay Wilder vs Joseph Parker will be shown live on DAZN Pay Per View. The event will cost £19.99 to watch live on or through the DAZN app. It is also being shown live on TNT Sports who are charging £19.99 as well.

What’s been said?

When asked how long he expected his fight against Parker to last, Wilder told ESNews: “You already know: knockout.

“In my head I’m looking at three or four [rounds]. In my head, I see. But you never know. In my head that’s how I got it going. But I’m not going to force anything. I’m just gonna do what I do best. And that fight is going to be a knockout.”
