Deontay Wilder accepts terms to fight Anthony Joshua in the United Kingdom

Deontay Wilder accepts terms to fight Anthony Joshua in the United Kingdom

England's Joshua wants to fight Wilder at Wembley Stadium, which has a retractable roof.

But 32-year-old WBC champion Wilder uploaded a message to his Twitter and Instagram accounts piling pressure on Joshua to take the fight, declaring he would accept the unified WBA, IBF, and WBO champion's deal to travel to the UK. "Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK".

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.

Unbeaten heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua appear poised for a title unification bout.

"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".

"It's taken him four weeks to come back to us but if he does want to fight Anthony Joshua and he does accept the deal then we want to try and get this booked in as soon as possible".

Rafael Nadal reaches 11th French Open final, will face Dominic Thiem
Del Potro, the US Open victor in 2009, is playing the tournament for only the second time since 2012 after a spate of injuries. Nadal is looking as comfortable as ever on the Philippe Chatrier court where has previously won the title 10 times.

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.

"The fact that we've lost four weeks waiting for an answer from Deontay Wilder makes a fight happening in 11 or 12 weeks of this magnitude unlikely", Hearn said.

'We will wait and see what happens when we get the contract back.

"We're going to dealing with that and making sure he gets the relevant paperwork". It's up to them to choose United States or UK. A Joshua-Wilder fight on the service would raise its now nonexistent American profile, but it would also limit the USA revenue for the bout.

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