Wilder, Joshua agree to fight deal

  • Joshua Wilder agree to unification bout

"The story is very simple and that is Deontay Wilder today, accepted the terms that Anthony Joshua's team gave us", Finkel told World Boxing News in an interview on Monday.

"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. He insisted on having the fight there, even if the overall revenue for the event could be greater in Las Vegas.

A fight with Wilder has always been Plan A for Joshua, but after lengthy talks with the WBC champion struggled to produce a definitive scenario, a deal had largely been concluded with Povetkin for September in London.

If everything agreed in discussions is included and they are happy with the date and venue, then Wilder will sign for the money-spinning bout. The fact that both men are the height of National Basketball Association stars and have devastating knockout power will make the bout, should it happen, a must see for fans - even casual fans.

"Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK".

The victor of a Joshua-Wilder bout would be the first man to hold all four heavyweight titles - WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO - simultaneously.

Trump, Kim arrive at summit venue for historic US-North Korea meeting
Whether such a deal can be done, Trump declared Saturday, is something he will know nearly from the moment they meet. But some US officials have questioned whether Trump was doing enough to get up to speed.


Starsport understands it is considerably more than the £9.3m that Hearn originally offered Wilder back in early April. "Even though we would have liked a better deal, Deontay said yes".

'In addition to that, today I agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the U.K. If Joshua prefers the fight in the United Kingdom. the ball is in their court. We've got to speak to them about what date suits them.

"I think Wembley is where Anthony Joshua wants it to take place". If he prefers the fight in the United Kingdom, the ball is in their court.

Last night, he tweeted: "Breaking news for all you for all you Anthony Joshua fans".

The 28-year-old Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) won a world title in 2016 and has made five defenses, including a 10th-round knockout of former longtime unified world champion Wladimir Klitschko in the consensus 2017 fight of the year and unifying three belts with the win against Parker on March 31.
