Deontay Wilder accepts terms to fight Anthony Joshua in the United Kingdom

USA TODAY Sports

Both fighters fought in March, with Wilder defeating Luis Ortiz in a thrilling, come-from-behind fight where he was almost finished, while Joshua scored a lackluster win on the scorecards over Joseph Parker.

There is a lot of sorting out to do for this fight, but great news that in principle he seems to be on board for the idea of coming to the United Kingdom for the fight.

After the recent turn of events, heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder (40-0, 30 KOs) and Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) could very well collide in a high profile unification showdown.

"It's great that he's come back to us". With that bout on the cusp of being announced, Wilder's sudden willingness to put pen to paper has drawn scepticism from the Joshua's camp, who will now test his intentions with a contract.

She told HuffPost UK some of her colleagues needed to "take a chill pill". The government said it would not support that amendment.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel told ESPN they had agreed to the latest terms offered by Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn.

Hearn has already stated that a mandatory challenge against Alexander Povetkin could be next with Wilder straight after, but the American's concession may have ripped up the plan.

"Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK".

"Now we will see if they live up to it or if they try to go through with the fight with [mandatory challenger Alexander] Povetkin first". On Monday night he posted: 'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S. is still available to him if he wants it. And we said yes.

And we think that is enough time for the tech-maverick Elon Musk to figure out how those 10 rockets will blend into the vehicle . As to the benefits, Musk noted that "these rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering".

Although Finkel wouldn't specify how much money Wilder would earn, Hearn has made two previous offers of $12.5 million and $15 million.

Wilder's team have also left the £37m offer made to Joshua in April on the table if the WBA, WBO and IBF champion changes his mind and wants to travel to the United States for the fight instead. "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".

Hearn told Sky Sports News it is the only way to find out if the WBC titleholder Wilder is serious about fighting Joshua even though reports out of the United States on Monday suggested he had accepted a two fight deal with the 2012 Olympic champion and now holder of the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.

A fight between Joshua and Wilder would see all major heavyweight world titles on the line.

As Wilder said, the ball is in the court of team Joshua now.
