Deontay Wilder agreed to fight Anthony Joshua after defeating Joseph Parker. However, “The Bronze Bomber” might have to change this plan after experiencing a huge loss to his recent opponent this weekend.

Wilder and Parker joined other huge names this Saturday at the Day of Reckoning: Fight Night event in Saudi Arabia. The two fought in the co-main event in Riyadh, with Parker winning the bout via unanimous decision. It was a huge upset, with the judges giving the two the scores of 120-108, 118-110, and 118-111.

Parker made a remarkable performance by successfully dodging the opponent’s attacks and finding the right time to execute his attacks. The Kiwi boxer showcased his prowess in using his overhand right hand, while Wilder had a hard time finding an opening in sending his right hand. With all this, there was a huge difference in the number of punches the two landed, with Wilder having an average of 39 punches in total and 89 for Parker.

This adds to the number of victories Parker earned after his loss to Joe Joyce via an 11th-round KO during a vacant WBO interim heavyweight title bout in Manchester. As for Wilder, this could derail his plan of facing Joshua, whom he agreed to fight after earning success in this recent event. However, with how things turned out, Wilder and Joshua might revise their plan. This could also affect the plan of Francis Ngannou, who’s also considering Wilder for his next boxing fight.
