Hearn: Joshua-Wilder May Go To Wembley in October, November

  • Britain's heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua's camp are calling WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder's bluff by sending him a contract for a unification bout that would be biggest in the division for many a year

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK".

Hearn did not respond to text messages from ESPN seeking comment, but it was late at night in England at the time. "But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua, the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder".

Shelly Finkel, one of Wilder's co-managers, told ESPN that World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Wilder had accepted an offer by Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn for a fight in autumn. Deontay wrote to Joshua and said 'Hey, I accept your offer, let's fight in the UK. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

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.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it all today". On Monday night he posted: 'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the United States is still available to him if he wants it. "It's up to them to choose".

"The U.S. TV is Eddie's call", Finkel said.




Joshua, 28, won his first world title in 2016 and has made five defenses, taking his record to 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

Another possible outlet is the Perform Group's DAZN sports streaming service, which is due to launch in the USA later this summer, with Hearn's recently agreed to eight-year, $1 billion deal to provide boxing content due to begin in September.

Wilder, 32, improved to 40-0 with 39 knockouts when he knocked out previously unbeaten Cuban Luis Ortiz in the 10th round in Brooklyn, New York, on March 3. 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.

Hearn recently claimed that a deal to fight mandatory WBA challenger Povetkin was "virtually done" but there's no telling how much of that was a clever ploy to force Wilder's hand and if that's what the Matchroom boss intended, he's absolutely nailed it.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted odds on the potential fight back in early April. But we need to get the contract back from Deontay Wilder - then we will know if this is bluster or if he is serious'.
