Deontay Wilder Reportedly Agrees To Terms For Anthony Joshua Superfight

Shannon Reynolds | 12 June, 2018, 14:12

After the recent turn of events, heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder (40-0, 30 KOs) and Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) could very well collide in a high profile unification showdown.

According to Pugmire, Wilder's and Joshua's respective teams were quibbling over the location of the fight, with Wilder's camp wanting it in the USA and Joshua's side preferring the UK.

Finkel claimed Wilder had agreed to a rematch clause.

Finkel told World Boxing News on Monday that Wilder agreed to Joshua's terms on the latest contract offer and has now given Hearn 48 hours to send the official contract.

Wilder's posts come just days after Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said his "gut feeling" was that Britain's IBF, WBO and WBA champion would fight his WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in September, with a Wilder bout due to follow in February or March. 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.

Hearn has said that he is also close to a deal with Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs), 38, of Russia, Joshua could fight both this year, and they were trying to figure out which order to do the fights, though Povetkin would be a risky fight before taking on Wilder for far more money. "Deontay wrote to Joshua and said 'Hey, I accept your offer, let's fight in the U.K'". It's up to them to choose U.S. or UK.

"They gave us an offer, we were hoping they'd accept the U.S offer instead because there's so much money but instead, since they haven't, we've decided that if you don't want $50 million then we're willing to come the United Kingdom and take your offer".

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

"If for any reason Anthony changes his mind and wants to fight in the U.S, the $50m offer we have made to him is still there. We want the fight next, we've signed the contract and we're ready to go".

The victor of the first fight will become the undisputed heavyweight champion.
