Wilder Manager Explains Why They Accepted Joshua in The UK

Deontay Wilder Deontay Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua Fight for Heavyweight Championship Announced

"It's obviously the fight we want".

Talks between Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and Finkel have been ongoing for several weeks, but a deal seemed to be out of reach as the two parties failed to agree terms last month, despite claims Wilder had offered his rival a $50m deal to fight in America.

Assuming the details are finalized and the fight announced, Joshua vs.

Hearn contacted Joshua this morning to discuss the latest developments with the deal, and is waiting to see whether Wilder will sign for the next fight with Joshua, who is also close to a WBA mandatory title defence against Alexander Povektin. If he prefers the fight in the United Kingdom, the ball is in their court.

"If they change their mind, the $50 million [against 50 percent of the event] we offered them [to come to the United States] is still on the table". Wilder would be one of the biggest bouts in boxing.

Wilder greeted confirmation that his fight with Joshua is about to be confirmed with this confident video posted on his social media channels.

The WBC champion revealed he was willing to give Joshua home advantage for the huge world heavyweight fight for all the major world titles, and co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed that terms had been accepted.

"We see this as a Wembley fight and we're quite limited in that respect", said Hearn.

"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".

Although Finkel wouldn't specify how much money Wilder would earn, Hearn has made two previous offers of $12.5 million and $15 million.

"If they keep their word, then we've got a fight", Deas said. Not only does he hold a majority of the prominent belts, his victory in a war over onetime long reigning division king Wladimir Kltischko established the fighter as the man to beat throughout the fight world.

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

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