Deontay Wilder Accepts Terms To Fight Anthony Joshua In The UK

WBC world champion Deontay Wilder says he has agreed terms to fight Anthony Joshua in a mouthwatering heavyweight unification bout in the UK.

After his victory over Joseph Parker in Cardiff back in April, a win that brought him a fourth world title belt, Joshua seemingly called out Wilder, saying: "Wilder, let's go baby! Let's go!"

Many thought AJ would have to travel to the United States to fight the 40-0 fighter, but "We're staying right here!" was his response when asked whether he would be have to head Stateside to make it happen.

And it looks as though the 28-year old's terms have been met, with the Bronze Bomber taking to Twitter to reveal he has agreed to the neccesary demands.

While it's still not completely a done deal because there are a couple more formalities to sort out, we are unbelievably close to getting the heavyweight division's top two fighters slugging it out over here in September/October time.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel also confirmed that the contract contains a clause for a rematch on Wilder's turf to take place.

"That was in the offer, yes," he told World Boxing News.

"They asked for the rematch to be in place, so we've agreed to it.

"We got two big punchers, big men, undefeated and have knocked out each opponent apart from one on each side - it's a humungous fight."

LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!
