Deontay Wilder & Anthony Joshua Agree To Terms On Fight

'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 UK.

Wilder, who offered Joshua $50m to take the fight in the US, says that offer is still on the table.

Wilder is 40-0 with 39 knockouts, while Joshua is 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

Finkel claimed Wilder had agreed to a rematch clause.

"Deontay Wilder has accepted the terms offered to him by Anthony Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn for them to meet in the United Kingdom for the undisputed heavyweight championship this fall, Shelly Finkel, Wilder's co-manager, told ESPN on Monday night". Joshua will put the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles on the line, while Wilder is the WBC champion. The two sides continued to speak, however, including an in-person meeting last week in NY between Finkel and Matchroom Sport founder Barry Hearn.

"The $50million offer for him to fight me next in the U.S. is still available". It's up to them to choose United States or UK.

Wilder's manager Shelley Finkel separately indicated to World Boxing News on Monday night that October is an option as well as September, which would go some way to quell one of Hearn's concerns about a September date clashing with Canelo Alvarez's return from a drugs suspension. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

The fight, pairing unbeaten sluggers at the peak of their physical primes, would be one of the biggest the sport could make and the most important the division has seen in 15 years. Among his notable victories are an 11 round TKO of former lineal world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017.

Negotiations have been ongoing since Joshua beat Joseph Parker in March to add the WBO belt to his collection.

Wilder, 32, a native of Alabama, has made seven defenses - all by knockout - of the title he won from Bermane Stiverne in 2015.
