DEONTAY WILDER AGREES TO ANTHONY JOSHUA'S TERMS FOR A 2-FIGHT DEAL:

"The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the US is still available. Today I even agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the UK. If he prefers the fight in the UK, the ball is in their court. It’s up to them to choose," wrote undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who recently took to social media to confirm reports that he has accepted terms offered to him by Anthony Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, for a heavyweight unification showdown in the United Kingdom this fall. 

According to ESPN.com, Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s co-manager, announced, "We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the U.K.. Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the U.K. 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.” Finkel also revealed that the offer from Hearn was a two-fight deal that included a rematch that would take place in the United States.
