Anthony Joshua & Deontay Wilder Agree To Unification Bout

Anthony Joshua & Deontay Wilder Agree To Unification Bout

American Deontay Wilder has agreed terms to fight Anthony Joshua in Britain later this year in a bout that would crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion in nearly 20 years.

Wilder greeted confirmation that his fight with Joshua is about to be confirmed with this confident video posted on his social media channels.

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK".

"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 want the fight next, we're waiting for the contract and we're ready to go'.

"We offered $50 million, which is what he said he wanted", Deas said to the AP. He says the fight could be anywhere from September to November with a potential Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin rematch in September. "Even though we would have liked a better deal, Deontay said yes". "All they have to do is tell us where to be and when to be there, and we'll be there".

"If they keep their word, then we've got a fight", Deas said. "Deontay wants this fight".

"The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the United States is still available", Wilder said.

Wilder made a $50million offer to Joshua to come to America, but has now announced he is prepared to come to the UK. If he prefers the fight in the United Kingdom, the ball is in their court.

Deontay Wilder has insisted that a September showdown with Anthony Joshua in Britain could be salvaged. "We have preference for Showtime because we've been with them". 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.

That offer did not meet the requirements of Joshua and Hearn, with the duo edging towards a fight against Russian contender Alexander Povetkin in recent days.

Wilder has won an incredible 39 fights on his unblemished 40-victory record by knockout and has defended the WBC title seven times in a row since winning it three years ago.
