According to the latest reports, Anthony Joshua risks losing the projected N45.5 billion payday he is expected to earn in a December fight against Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia if he fails to emerge victorious in his upcoming rematch against Dillian Whyte on August 12. Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, confirmed that the Wilder fight is locked in for December but emphasized that the deal is contingent on Joshua defeating Whyte. The Saudi organizers expressed their preference for Joshua to avoid the Whyte fight, but Joshua insisted on facing his rival before the Wilder bout. If Joshua loses to Whyte, the Wilder fight could be in jeopardy.
