Joshua and Wilder agree on showdown

Joshua and Wilder agree on showdown

Yet it appears a breakthrough has come in negotiations between IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua and WBC title holder Wilder. "Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK". If he prefers the fight in the United Kingdom, the ball is in their court. "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".

It's understood that Wilder accepted a two-fight deal which will entitle him to a rematch with "AJ" in the United States.

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.

"We're not looking to be hard in the contract but again, there seems to be a lot of talking on social media so we'll see if it is all bluster or whether he knows that the Povetkin fight is in the balance. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next couple days", Finkel said. "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're going to dealing with that and making sure he gets the relevant paperwork". "We wanted a percentage, but we didn't think we could get it done in a quick time frame, so we said let's take what they've offered us".


Surely Joshua will agree and send the contract to Wilder. It's up to them to choose U.S. or UK.

Should Joshua, 28, fight the American next, the victor would become the first heavyweight to hold all four recognised world titles at once.

Wilder, 32, improved to 40-0 with 39 knockouts when he knocked out previously unbeaten Cuban Luis Ortiz in the 10th round in Brooklyn, New York, on March 3.

Another possible outlet is the Perform Group's DAZN sports streaming service, which is due to launch in the USA later this summer, with Hearn's recently agreed to eight-year, $1 billion deal to provide boxing content due to begin in September.

Anthony Joshua holds numerous world titles. October or November are being considered, though it is understood that the latter is more likely, and Cardiff would be the principle option because it is indoors.
