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.

Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs), who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF titles and has risen over the past year to become the biggest star globally in the sport, turned down a recent $50 million offer from Wilder's team, setting off a confusing stretch of public negotiating.

However, a massive update took place on Monday night as WBC champion Wilder revealed that he'd accepted Joshua's terms to fight in the United Kingdom.

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK", Wilder was quoted by ESPN as saying.

Unbeaten heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua appear poised for a title unification bout.

"I don't know if he's heard we're close to closing the Povetkin fight - or whether he actually wants to fight", the 38-year-old said. "One thing I can tell you is by the end of this week, Deontay Wilder will have a contract in front of him and we'll see if he's real".

Deas says, "They offered and we accepted".

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. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two. "Not as good as we feel it should be, but we want the fight, and we're willing to take what they offered", Finkel said. We see this as a Wembley fight and we're quite limited in that respect, obviously American pay-per-view and TV have to be considered so we've got to speak to them about what date suits them.

"We're going to dealing with that and making sure he gets the relevant paperwork".

Wilder offered up these comments as he confirmed he had agreed a deal to fight in the UK: "The $50m (£37m) offer for him to fight me in the United States is still available". Currently, Joshua is a -200 favorite and Wilder a +170 underdog. It's up to them to choose U.S. or UK. The "Bronze Bomber" is 40-0 with 39 knockouts. I think from Deontay Wilder's messages on social media, he seems fine with that.
