Boxing World Goes Nuts After Wilder Accepts Joshua’s Offer

Wilder Now Ready To Fight Joshua In UK

"BREAKING NEWS for all you Anthony Joshua fans", Wilder wrote on Twitter.

Location seemed to be the largest stumbling block in the talks between the fighters" camps as both men wanted home advantage and "AJ' has seemingly won out after admitting that he'd be happy to take a lesser purse to have the contest take place in the 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".

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the U.K.", Finkel told ESPN.

Russian Alexander Povetkin is the WBA's mandatory challenger and is close to a deal to fight Joshua, although Joshua could face Wilder first if Povetkin is able to fight the victor.

Joshua is keen to return to Wembley stadium, which was the venue of his epic victory over Wladimir Klitschko, but Hearn admits a September fight looks "unlikely" and could be forced to push the date back, if it does take place this year.

The American said: "The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the United States is still available". And we said yes.

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

'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 United Kingdom. the ball is in their court.

"If they keep their word, then we've got a fight", Deas said.

'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S.is still available to him if he wants it.

A fight between Joshua and Wilder would see all major heavyweight world titles on the line.

Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs), who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF titles and has risen over the past year to become the biggest star globally in the sport, turned down a recent $50 million offer from Wilder's team, setting off a confusing stretch of public negotiating.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted odds on the potential fight back in early April. Currently, Joshua is a -200 favorite and Wilder a +170 underdog.
