Antony Joshua Okays Terms To Fight Deontay Wilder

Heavyweight Champion Bout

Joshua has apparently agreed terms for the overdue Deontay Wilder showdown.

But the heavyweight stars have nobody to host the fight.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has been promising 33-year-old London 2012 legend AJ will finally face the Bronze Bomber for an eternity.

But the Saudi Arabia team Hearn worked with for AJ’s rematches with Andy Ruiz Jr and Oleksandr Usyk has suddenly vanished from the sport.

Now the Matchroom boss claims all the details have been agreed upon.

But he admits he’s struggling to find a site to stump up the giant fee required and time is running out.


He said: “We’ve agreed the money. We’ve agreed everything.

“We’re waiting on the official contract but we won’t wait forever.”


Hearn reckons Joshua could fight again this year, regardless of whether Wilder is his opponent or not.


He told pressmen: “He, Joshua is just training away but he wants Wilder.
“If it can’t be made, he wants to stay active. If he fights in December, that’ll be three fights in eight months which is incredible for him.

“People keep saying he should have one more fight and then fight Wilder, but we don’t think so. If it ends up that way, so be it and nothing would surprise me.

“If he fights in December, if he fights Deontay Wilder, if he fights Tyson Fury next – nothing would surprise me
