Anthony Joshua vs Otto Wallin – aka The Day of Reckoning – is upon us! On a massive bill from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Britain's former two-time world heavyweight champion will clash with Sweden's Otto Wallin – and you can watch Joshua vs Wallin live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
It's finally fight day in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the atmosphere is building as the preliminary bouts are about to get underway. AJ looked in fine fettle at yesterday's weigh-in and knows that nothing less than a win inside the distance is enough for him to go into next year's highly anticipated fight against Deontay Wilder with the confidence to take on one of the world's most feared punchers.
The undercard is now down to the two co-main events of the show, with Wilder vs Parker up next. Daniel Dubois recorded a fine stoppage win with 10 seconds of his fight to go against Jarrell Miller and Dmitry Bivol defended his WBA light heavyweight title for the 11th time with a shutout defeat of Lyndon Arthur. Just Wilder vs Parker and then AJ vs Wallin to go in Riyadh.

Joshua seems to have abandoned the big-hitting style that dominated his early professional career since going to war with Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, bizarrely trying to outbox the artist that is world champion Oleksandr Usyk in back-to-back defeats. But with a much-anticipated fight against Deontay Wilder – who fights Joseph Parker immediately before AJ takes to the squared circle – on the cards next year, Joshua must win convincingly.
Wallin is no mug. The 33-year-old Swede's only defeat as a professional came with a controversial September 2019 decision that went Tyson Fury's way despite many ringside believing the fight should have been stopped because of a horrible cut on the Gypsy King's forehead. Wallin picked up an impressive win against Murat Gassiev last time out in September and is a well-schooled southpaw, like Usyk, who hits hard.
Plenty will be looking if Joshua's work with temporary Ben Davison, who used to train Fury, will bring back the old barnstorming fighter. He needs a big win.
Below, we'll show you how to watch a Joshua vs Wallin live stream from anywhere, whether you are in the U.S. or traveling abroad. Plus, we've got a brief analysis of a stacked undercard that also include Deontay Wilder, Daniel Dubois, Jai Opetaia and Dmitry Bivol.

Joshua vs Wallin fight card
There's plenty on the Anthony Joshua vs Wallin undercard to whet your appetite for the big headline bout. The co-main event features former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in his latest rebuild fight against fellow former champions Joseph Parker, with rumors suggesting Joshua and Wilder will finally fight each other should they win their respective bouts.
Also on the bill is a world title fight as Dmitry Bivol defends his WBA light heavyweight strap against Lyndon Arthur, who counts a win against former title challenger Anthony Yarde on his resumé.
Perhaps the fight of the night will be a heavyweight barnstormer between Daniel Dubois and Jarrell Miller. Dubois was on the rough end of tight refereeing call against world champion Oleksandr Usyk earlier this year, with the big-punching Miller rebuilding after missing out on a shot at Anthony Joshua in 2019 having failed a drugs test.
Jai Opetaia vs Ellis Zorro was supposed to be for the former's IBF world cruiserweight title but he's been stripped for not fighting his mandatory challenger.
