- Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder have all but signed a deal to fight each other this fall.
- Wilder, a big-punching American, has conceded home advantage and is willing to fight Joshua in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in Joshua’s home town, London.
- Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is now sending all “the relevant paperwork” to Wilder’s management.
A fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder is close to becoming a reality.
The trans-Atlantic rivals hold all of boxing’s major heavyweight titles between them. They are both unbeaten, possess frightening punching power, and look set to collide in one of the biggest fights of the year.
Joshua won his first world championship, the IBF belt, when he flattened Charles Martin in a dominant knockout victory at London’s 02 Arena in 2016. Since then, he has annexed the IBO, WBA (Super), and WBO titles by defeating Wladimir Klitschko (2017) and Joseph Parker (2018).
The only belt Joshua is yet to win is Wilder’s WBC championship, but there are now three reasons why Joshua may well have the chance to wrest that belt away from the American in a super showdown in October or November.
