Deontay Wilder Reportedly Agrees To Terms For Anthony Joshua Superfight

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) revealed the news Monday on social media.

The victor of a Joshua-Wilder bout would be the first man to hold all four heavyweight titles - WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO - simultaneously.

'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.

"Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the U.K. Deontay sent an email to Joshua (Sunday) night and I sent one today to Barry Hearn and Eddie telling them that we officially accept the offer to fight under the terms they gave us and to send us the contract". 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.

As Wilder said, the ball is in the court of team Joshua now.

'It will take place in the United Kingdom either September or October according to Eddie Hearn.

Wilder made a $50million offer to Joshua to come to America, but has now announced he is prepared to come to the UK.

Deas says, "They offered and we accepted". Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S.is still available to him if he wants it. The fact that both men are the height of National Basketball Association stars and have devastating knockout power will make the bout, should it happen, a must see for fans - even casual fans.

Negotiations have been ongoing since Joshua beat Joseph Parker in March to add the WBO belt to his collection. "But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua, the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder".

As evidence of the moneymaking potential, the Los Angeles Times' Lance Pugmire reported in May that Finkel and Al Haymon were prepared to give Joshua $50 million guaranteed if he was willing to fight Wilder in the United States. His most recent victory, a comeback knockout of Luis Ortiz in March, was also his most impressive.
