The American, who holds the WBC heavyweight crown, used his social media channels to say he has agreed to the terms offered by Joshua's camp for the blockbuster unification fight.

Finkel claimed Wilder had agreed to a rematch clause. Deontay wrote to Joshua and said: "Hey, I accept your offer, let's fight in the UK".

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel later told ESPN they had officially accepted terms to a fight in the UK.

The fight, pairing unbeaten sluggers at the peak of their physical primes, would be one of the biggest the sport could make and the most important the division has seen in 15 years.

Deas says, "They offered and we accepted".

Wilder made a $50million offer to Joshua to come to America, but has now announced he is prepared to come to the UK.

'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S.is still available to him if he wants it.
