Maybe Frank Warren was wrong about Anthony Joshua's next fight after all

Maybe Frank Warren was wrong about Anthony Joshua's next fight after all

"There's a lot to still work out but certainly if it is real, this is good news for the Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder fight".

Wilder owns the WBC strap, while Joshua holds the IBF, WBA Super and WBO titles.

"It's obviously the fight we want, there is a lot of sorting out to do but great news that, in principle, he seems to be on board with the idea of coming to the United Kingdom for fight".

Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua have agreed terms for a heavyweight unification bout which will take place at a British venue later this year, ESPN reported on Monday. "Deontay sent an email to Joshua [Sunday] night, and I sent one today to Barry Hearn and Eddie telling them that we officially accept the offer to fight under the terms they gave us and to send us the contract".

"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".

A fight with Wilder has always been Plan A for Joshua, but after lengthy talks with the WBC champion struggled to produce a definitive scenario, a deal had largely been concluded with Povetkin for September in London.

If the fight is confirmed, it will be the biggest bout seen in the division in years.

While CBS was quick to catch the swear for US audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast. The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro's comments, The Associated Press reports.

"Our original plan and hope was to do it in the middle of September, but obviously this "Canelo" fight on September 15 makes it a little more hard with US TV and the fact that we've lost four weeks in waiting for an answer from Deontay Wilder, makes the fight happening in 11 or 12 weeks of this magnitude unlikely".

"It's obviously the fight we want". "We wanted a percentage, but we didn't think we could get it done in a quick time frame, so we said let's take what they've offered us".

"But either way, he's going to be getting a contract from us ASAP. It's up to them to choose". "But obviously this Canelo fight on September 15 makes it a little more hard with U.S. TV".

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) revealed the news Monday on social media.

Wilder and Joshua will put their undefeated heavyweight records on the line.

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.

Should Joshua, 28, fight the American next, the victor would become the first heavyweight to hold all four recognised world titles at once.
