Anthony Joshua: Boxing Pundit Speaks on the British Boxer's Next Bout After Defeating Otto Wallin
- Anthony Joshua is getting ready for his next opponent after defeating Otto Wallin in Riyadh
- The British-Nigerian boxer dominated the Swedish boxer in an impressive five-round victory
- Boxing pundit Bamidele Bakare has shared his views on Joshua's proposed next fight
Nigerian boxing pundit Bamidele Bakare has shared his view on Anthony Joshua's next bout after defeating Otto Wallin at the Day of Reckoning card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The British-Nigerian was back at his best over the weekend as he claimed a deserving victory over Wallins at the Middle Eastern nation.
The Swedish boxer could not last past the fifth round after he was pulled out by his corner.
Sharing his thoughts on Joshua's next fight, Pundit Bakare told Sports Brief in an exclusive interview that promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that the former heavyweight champion will face Filip Hrgovic.
"According to Eddie Hearn, who is Anthony Joshua's promoter, he said after this amazing performance by 'AJ', it is possible he fights Filip Hrgovic hopefully next year if the contract goes as planned," he said.
"I think it is a challenge that has to come through (for Anthony Joshua) after all this because it is not certain that they will want to fix 'AJ' with Joseph Parker (it depends on what happens)."
The Nigerian boxing pundit also shared his thoughts on the possibility of Joshua facing Deontay Wilder next year.
"Both fights this weekend were a plan to set them off for the supposed fight on March 9th, but I don't think that would happen anymore because Deontay Wilder lost to Joseph Parker, which was very impressive," he added.

Wilder was tipped as the favourite to win the bout, but Parker surprised many boxing fans by coming out victorious.
Wilder appeared to be a shadow of himself and was beaten at his own game by New Zealand boxer Parker, who won unanimously.
