Deontay Wilder agrees to Anthony Joshua fight next in the UK

Wilder will be sent contract for Joshua fight says Hearn Deontay Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua Fight for Heavyweight Championship Announced

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.

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

Talks between Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and Finkel have been ongoing for several weeks, but a deal seemed to be out of reach as the two parties failed to agree terms last month, despite claims Wilder had offered his rival a $50m deal to fight in America.

Deas says, "They offered and we accepted".

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.

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.

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.

Wilder's move is a significant step in getting arguably the biggest fight of the year on. "Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next couple days", Finkel said.

"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. We've got to speak to them about what date suits them. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), 32, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, won his belt in 2015 and has made seven title defenses, including scoring a massive 10th-round knockout of then-unbeaten top contender Luis "King Kong" Ortiz in a riveting fight on March 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

That didn't stop the world heavyweight champion from offering up another fight back in the U.S.

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK", Finkel said.

Wilder's team have also left the £37m offer made to Joshua in April on the table if the WBA, WBO and IBF champion changes his mind and wants to travel to the USA for the fight instead.

A fight between Joshua and Wilder would see all major heavyweight world titles on the line.
