Carl Froch Says It’s Disappointing Anthony Joshua Is Fighting Wallin Not Wilder

Carl Froch is frustrated that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder aren’t fighting on Dec. 23.

Joshua and Wilder will be competing on the same card but they won’t be boxing one another. It’s disappointing news for many, and Froch says the two not boxing one another is bad for the sport of boxing.

“It’s a bit disappointing for AJ to be fighting Wallin instead of Deontay Wilder, because the AJ vs Wilder fight for me is a very big fight, it’s a fight I could look forward to, it’s a fight I could get excited about,” Froch told Talk Sport.

“It’s one of them where you think, ‘What happens?’. Does AJ get absolutely obliterated and knocked out in a couple of rounds because he’s a bit mentally still tentative in the way in which he does his work? Or does AJ actually turn up and put on a boxing masterclass and maybe even finish off Wilder? There’s so many different outcomes, it’s a juicy fight, so to now find out that AJ’s fighting Wallin, I’m disappointed.

You can see Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn and his team are still in the rebuilding process, because Otto Wallin is not a bad fight. It’s AJ back out there against someone who is quite capable, we saw him against Tyson Fury and he gave him that nasty cut, he’s on a run of a few decent little wins since then, but let’s be honest it’s nothing to get too excited about.

The hope for many fans is that should both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder win on Dec. 23, the two can box each other next time out.

Do you think we see Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder in 2024?
