Wilder agrees to heavyweight showdown with Joshua

Уайлдер и Джошуа проведут два боя

Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker embrace after their fight in Cardiff.

One key demand of Joshua's was to have the clash in the United Kingdom, after Wilder had offered the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO champion $50million to come to America.

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.

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.

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

Following an exhausting 16-hour flight, the team faces another four hours on a plane for the game against Egypt , which will be played in Ekaterinburg.

"It's taken him four weeks to come back to us but if he does want to fight Anthony Joshua and he does accept the deal then we want to try and get this booked in as soon as possible".

Complicating matters is that Joshua is already due to take on WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. AJ would want Wembley for a fight of this magnitude but if we do October or November you can't really do that outdoors. We can't wait. Send the contract'. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two. Finkel said they accepted a guaranteed purse but did not get a percentage of the overall event that they wanted, meaning Wilder was likely offered a large enough guarantee above $15 million to make it worthwhile to forgo a percentage. "It's up to them to choose".

Joshua told Independent.ie in March that he was keen to fight Wilder in his next fight and now it seems a deal has been done for what could be the richest fight in the sport's history.

Joshua wants to continue fighting on home soil and believes he is the A-side of negotiations because he owns three of the major world titles.

Joshua, who won his first world title by stopping Charles Martin in 2016, scored his biggest victory to date the following year by rising from the canvas to knock out former champion Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 spectators in London.
