Deontay Wilder Reportedly Agrees To Terms For Anthony Joshua Superfight

Deontay Wilder Reportedly Agrees To Terms For Anthony Joshua Superfight

"But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua, the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder".

Wilder now holds the WBC title, with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, and the fight will see the victor taking all of it home. "Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK".

Location seemed to be the largest stumbling block in the talks between the fighters" camps as both men wanted home advantage and "AJ' has seemingly won out after admitting that he'd be happy to take a lesser purse to have the contest take place in the UK.

If promoter Eddie Hearn and Deontay Wilder's team can close a deal for an Anthony Joshua-Wilder showdown, Hearn wants to bring their huge heavyweight title fight to London's Wembley Stadium.

According to BBC Sport, Wilder says that while the $50 million offer for Joshua to fight him in the United States is still on the table, he has agreed to Joshua's offer to fight in the UK. "One thing I can tell you is by the end of this week, Deontay Wilder will have a contract in front of him and we'll see if he's real". On Monday night he posted: 'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S. is still available to him if he wants it.

Hearn has already stated that a mandatory challenge against Alexander Povetkin could be next with Wilder straight after, but the American's concession may have ripped up the plan.

If the fight is confirmed, it will be the biggest bout seen in the division in years. "Not as good as we feel it should be, but we want the fight, and we're willing to take what they offered", Finkel said. We've got to speak to them about what date suits them.

"We're going to dealing with that and making sure he gets the relevant paperwork". "It's up to them to choose". Currently, Joshua is a -200 favorite and Wilder a +170 underdog.

The victor of the first fight will become the undisputed heavyweight champion.

Wilder is so far unbeaten in 40 fights, and has 39 knockouts. It will take place in the United Kingdom either September or October according to Eddie Hearn.

Anthony Joshua holds numerous world titles. If it is before Povetkin, then it runs on October and November.
