Deontay Wilder Reportedly Agrees To Terms For Anthony Joshua Superfight

Joshua Wilder agree to unification bout

The WBC champion revealed he was willing to give Joshua home advantage for the huge world heavyweight fight for all the major world titles, and co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed that terms had been accepted.

According to Pugmire, Wilder's and Joshua's respective teams were quibbling over the location of the fight, with Wilder's camp wanting it in the US and Joshua's side preferring the UK.

Russian Alexander Povetkin is the WBA's mandatory challenger and is close to a deal to fight Joshua, although Joshua could face Wilder first if Povetkin is able to fight the victor. "But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua, the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder".

Joshua is keen to return to Wembley stadium, which was the venue of his epic victory over Wladimir Klitschko, but Hearn admits a September fight looks "unlikely" and could be forced to push the date back, if it does take place this year.

"If for any reason Anthony changes his mind and wants to fight in the U.S, the $50m offer we have made to him is still there". A Joshua-Wilder fight on the service would raise its now nonexistent American profile, but it would also limit the US revenue for the bout.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it today, but one thing I can tell you is that by the end of this week Deontay Wilder will have a contract in front of him and we'll see if he's real", said Hearn.

Wilder made a $50million offer to Joshua to come to America, but has now announced he is prepared to come to the UK.

Starsport understands it is considerably more than the £9.3m that Hearn originally offered Wilder back in early April. "Finkel said that the offer is a two-fight deal with terms also agreed to for a rematch that would take place in the United States".

"If they keep their word, then we've got a fight", Deas said. Joshua holds the other heavyweight belts and is 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S.is still available to him if he wants it.

Surely Joshua will agree and send the contract to Wilder. It's up to them to choose USA or United Kingdom.
