Day of Reckoning betting preview

Some of boxing’s biggest stars have congregated in Saudi Arabia and the ‘Day of Reckoning’ is almost here. For the latest fight odds, visit our sportsbook.

Saturday night’s spectacular is a rare example of what can be accomplished when everybody in boxing works together. It could also be an exciting glimpse of things to come.

The show is dominated by heavyweights. Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Daniel Dubois, Joseph Parker, Otto Wallin, Filip Hrgovic, Arslanbek Makhmudov and Frank Sanchez all feature on the card and there are also appearances from the best cruiserweight on the planet, Jai Opetai, and a man many view as the best light heavyweight in the world, Dmitry Bivol.

The card is filled with storylines and intrigue so we decided to look at four of the toughest fights to call and give you some pointers on and things to consider when you place your bets this weekend.


Although he is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, Joshua has seemed caught between styles in recent fights. Having decided to train with Ben Davison, has Joshua decided what he wants to be?

If Wallin is able to make this a long, hard, gruelling fight, will Joshua begin to question himself and lose confidence?

Wallin is a southpaw. How much will the two years Joshua spent preparing for Oleksandr Usyk help him or are left handers his kryptonite?

Joshua is by far the most explosive and powerful fighter Wallin has faced. How will he cope?

Wallin’s brave performance against Tyson Fury was more than four years ago. Has he improved or regressed?

Is Wallin right? Did Joshua peak years ago or is he still operating at a higher level than Wallin has ever been at?

Will the mooted fight with Deontay Wilder distract Joshua?

THE PICK – Joshua to stop a determined Wallin between rounds 7-9 available at 27/5.


The question we ask of every Wilder opponent, can Parker take the power?

Wilder has boxed a single round since Tyson Fury stopped him in their ferocious third fight in 2021. He is now 38 years old. Is he the same fighter?

On paper, beating Parker would be the best win on Wilder’s record apart from his first win over Luis Ortiz in 2018.

Will Parker commit to getting close and taking away Wilder’s leverages or will he employ the risky tactic of staying outside and choosing his moments to attack?

Parker is trained by Andy Lee who was a big part of Tyson Fury’s camp for the fights with Wilder. Is Lee Parker’s secret weapon?

Will Wilder have his mind on the potential fight with Joshua?

If the fight goes long, who wants it more?

THE PICK – Wilder to come from behind and find a fight ending right hand. Wilder and the fight to go over 8.5 rounds is available at 11/5.


Usyk vs Dubois

Dubois has taken knees in his biggest fights against Joe Joyce and Oleksandr Usyk. Does he want it enough?

Will Miller be the same fighter after serving his suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing substances?

Is Miller mobile and fast enough to avoid Dubois’ excellent jab? If he can’t, how will he take the inevitable right hand that will follow?

Will Dubois handle the pressure of a must win fight? Miller will thrive under the spotlight.

Will Dubois be able to handle 320lbs of ‘Big Baby’ Miller pressing him onto the back foot.

If Miller can get onto Dubois’s chest and make it ugly and tough, will Dubois dig in or fold?

Does either fighter possess a Plan B?

THE PICK – Tough one. Dubois should be young, determined and skilled enough to get past Miller but may have to go the distance. A Dubois decision is available at 41/20.


Is Arthur ready for a fighter of Bivol’s quality?

Arthur has an outstanding jab. Can he establish it quickly?

Bivol has been out of the ring for over a year, will he have any ring rust?

Bivol hasn’t scored a stoppage since 2018.

At times, Arthur has boxed within himself. This time, he has to produce his absolute best. Just how good is he?

Bivol is a master boxer, if he can take away Arthur’s jab does he go through the gears?

THE PICK – Bivol to win a decision, priced at 7/10.
