Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are big enough stars to headline their own pay-per-view (PPV) cards. Instead, the two heavyweight titans will share top billing — against separate opponents — for a special “Riyadh Season” showcase on Sat. (Dec. 23, 2023) at Kingdom Arena in Saudi Arabia.
Not only that, cash-strapped buyers will get two marquee matchups for the price of one.
This weekend’s “Day of Reckoning” PPV card will cost £19.99 in the U.K., $39.99 in the U.S. and Canada, and $21.99 in most other parts of the world for current DAZN subscribers. By comparison, ESPN+ was charging double that number for the Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou PPV spectacle earlier this year.
Joshua will face off against Otto Wallin to close out the show. Not long before that heavyweight battle gets underway, Wilder will throw hands against Joseph Parker, also at heavyweight. That’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, considering the stacked undercard lineup and preliminary card offerings.
