Eddie Hearn, the boss at Matchroom Sport:

Talking about Anthony Joshua…

“First off, we’ve got a trio of heavyweight brawls that are hotter than a habanero. Can’t wait for Big Baby to duke it out with my new heavyweight hero, Daniel Dubois, after that battle scream he let out. It’s like flipping a coin, really. Then there’s Joseph Parker, right next to ‘AJ’, looking serious as a heart attack with a crack team including Andy Lee, who’s basically a wizard in the boxing world. That’s a mountain of a challenge for Deontay Wilder, who’s practically a human highlight reel.

As for ‘AJ’, his ride’s been nothing short of a rollercoaster on fire. From snagging Olympic Gold to grabbing the World Heavyweight Championship like it was his lunch in just his 16th scrap. He’s been on a streak hotter than a streak of lightning – Dominic Breazeale, Eric Molina, Wladimir Klitschko, you name it. His dance card’s been full with the likes of Carlos Takam, Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin, Andy Ruiz (twice for good measure), Kubrat Pulev, the Usyk duo, Robert Helenius, and now Otto Wallin.

2023 is ‘AJ’s’ year of no-nonsense, belt-free brawling. Otto Wallin nearly had Tyson Fury throwing in the towel, and just clobbered Murat Gassiev. But we’ve got a trick or two up our sleeve.

I see an Anthony Joshua who’s chomping at the bit, a guy who’s practically carried the heavyweight division on his back since his Olympic win. He’s looking to snag that three-time Heavyweight Champion title, but Saturday’s fight is no walk in the park. Teaming up with Ben Davison, I’m betting on a showstopper from Anthony this weekend.”

On Bivol…

“Big thanks to Dev. Echoing Frank, the hype for this card is through the roof. We first hit Riyadh four years back and, boy, has it changed. The speed at which this card came together was faster than a greased cheetah. From heavyweights to every other division, it’s a smorgasbord of fights.

When you gab about Dmitry Bivol, you’re talking about a boxing maestro. His win over Canelo Alvarez in Vegas? Pure artistry. He’s perched right at the top of the pound-for-pound list. And Lyndon Arthur, great British fighter with a top-notch team, he’s up to bat this Saturday. It’s David versus Goliath, but hey, we love an underdog story.

Having trouble finding opponents for Bivol?

“We’ve offered this fight around like it’s a hot potato – Joshua Buatsi, Dan Azeez, and finally, Lyndon Arthur steps up. He’s backed by the fantastic duo, Nisse and Kalle at Wasserman Boxing. It’s a true ‘chase your dreams’ scenario. Lyndon’s got a Herculean task ahead, but if he can topple Bivol, he’ll write his own ticket to the pound-for-pound list. He’s been out of the ring for a year, but he’s itching to prove he’s the top dog this Saturday.”
