Unbeaten Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua appear poised for title unification bout

The ball is in their court.

Wilder's manager Shelley Finkel separately indicated to World Boxing News on Monday night that October is an option as well as September, which would go some way to quell one of Hearn's concerns about a September date clashing with Canelo Alvarez's return from a drugs suspension. "It's up to them to choose". "Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK", Finkel said.

"Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the U.K. Deontay sent an email to Joshua (Sunday) night and I sent one today to Barry Hearn and Eddie telling them that we officially accept the offer to fight under the terms they gave us and to send us the contract".

Wilder had previously attempted to lure Joshua to fight in the USA with a $50m offer, but Joshua and Hearn have been firm in their stance that the match-up should happen in Britain. Shortly after, his co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed to multiple sites that the offer includes a rematch in the United States. "We wanted a percentage, but we didn't think we could get it done in a quick time frame, so we said let's take what they've offered us. All they have to do is tell us where to be and when to be there, and we'll be there".

Whataburger shades IHOP name change with savage tweet
IHOP's same-restaurant sales - or sales at locations open at least a year - declined 1.9 percent in its most recent fiscal year. Naturally, a few 'net-savvy users utilized some old favorite memes to express their distaste for the new situation.

Both fighters fought in March, with Wilder defeating Luis Ortiz in a thrilling, come-from-behind fight where he was almost finished, while Joshua scored a lackluster win on the scorecards over Joseph Parker. "We have preference for Showtime because we've been with them". It will take place in the United Kingdom either September or October according to Eddie Hearn. Yet America's Wilder has been standing in the way of Joshua's complete dominance.

Assuming the details are finalized and the fight announced, Joshua vs.

Briton Joshua, with a professional record of 21 wins and no losses is the holder of the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles while Wilder who has 40 wins and no losses is the WBC world champion.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted odds on the potential fight back in early April.
