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

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

"The fact that we've lost four weeks waiting for an answer from Deontay Wilder makes a fight happening in 11 or 12 weeks of this magnitude unlikely", Hearn said.

Hearn told Sportsmail: 'We made him (Wilder) an offer four weeks and now they have come back via social media accepting terms and wanting to proceed to contract.

'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. 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.

Hearn had claimed recently that Joshua could face Russian Alexander Povetkin, who is mandatory for his WBA title, in September before a Wilder clash in February.

'If Joshua prefers the fight in the United Kingdom, the ball is in their court.

Deas says, "They offered and we accepted".

"Now we will see if they live up to it or if they try to go through with the fight with [mandatory challenger Alexander] Povetkin first".

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. And we said yes.

"I think Wembley is where Anthony Joshua wants it to take place". Then they came back with a much, much, much smaller offer for Deontay, which would have been even less than Deontay would have made in the United States, and wanted him to still travel to the U.K. for the fight. "It's up to them to choose".

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.

The offer also includes a rematch clause, which Joshua and his team insisted on, and Wilder is happy to accept that also. Not only does he hold a majority of the prominent belts, his victory in a war over onetime long reigning division king Wladimir Kltischko established the fighter as the man to beat throughout the fight world.
