‘Day Of Reckoning’ Pre-Fight Presser – Key Moments
The fighters on ‘The Day of Reckoning’ card took part in the final pre-fight presser ahead of their fights on Saturday.
Anthony Joshua and Otto Wallin headline the main event. AJ wants to follow up on his last two wins against Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helenius. But he will have to do it without Derrick James. After just two fights, Joshua has decided to work with Ben Davidson. That change could impact the fight, as Wallin has only lost to Tyson Fury. This is crucial since Joshua and Deontay Wilder have agreed a two-fight deal. A loss for AJ disrupts those plans.
In chief support, Deonaty Wilder takes on Joseph Parker. The American stopped Helenius in the first round over a year ago in just one round, leaving questions over his activity. Before that, the two losses to Fury ended his reign as the WBC heavyweight champion. Parker enters the fight as a sparring partner for Fury. And with Andy Lee as his trainer, who has also worked with Fury, the former WBO champion was confident about his chances.
