Swedish heavyweight contender Otto Wallin and former two-time unified champion Anthony Joshua is being planned for December 23. That’s according to a report from American boxing journalist Dan Rafael.

Former champion Deontay Wilder also looks to take on former WBO champion Joseph Parker in the co-main event according to the journalist.

“Anthony Joshua would fight Otto Wallin in the main event of the pay-per-view, and former WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder would square off with former WBO titleholder Joseph Parker in the co-feature,” Rafael claimed.
