Wilder agrees to heavyweight showdown with Joshua

Wilder like Joshua is undefeated in his professional boxing career

Wilder greeted confirmation that his fight with Joshua is about to be confirmed with this confident video posted on his social media channels.

Wilder, the Tuscaloosa native and undefeated WBC world heavyweight champion, has been pursuing a bout with Joshua for some time now.

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

Location seemed to be the largest stumbling block in the talks between the fighters" camps as both men wanted home advantage and "AJ' has seemingly won out after admitting that he'd be happy to take a lesser purse to have the contest take place in the UK.

'We have accepted the offer from Team Joshua and look forward to coming over to fight again (last time was Audley Harrison) in front of the great United Kingdom fans, Deas told World Boxing News.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it today, but one thing I can tell you is that by the end of this week Deontay Wilder will have a contract in front of him and we'll see if he's real", said Hearn.

Russian Alexander Povetkin is the WBA's mandatory challenger and is close to a deal to fight Joshua, although Joshua could face Wilder first if Povetkin is able to fight the victor.

Trump says Larry Kudlow suffers a heart attack
Kudlow's wife, Judy Kudlow, said her husband was "doing fine", Washington Post reporter Robert Costa said on Twitter. After Trudeau's remarks, Kudlow said that Trump would not "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

"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".

If the Wilder fight is next up for Joshua, then the original plan of September 15 is now highly unlikely due to the lack of time involved, as well as the USA television clash with Canelo Alvarez's return from a drug's ban.

"But either way, he's going to be getting a contract from us ASAP". Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it all today".

Wilder and Joshua will put their undefeated heavyweight records on the line. "It's up to them to choose".

Wilder is so far unbeaten in 40 fights, and has 39 knockouts.

The victor of the first fight will become the undisputed heavyweight champion. Joshua holds the other heavyweight belts and is 21-0 with 20 knockouts. "If it is before Povetkin, then it runs on October or November".
