Deontay Wilder taking huge pay cut to fight Anthony Joshua, claims trainer

Уайлдер и Джошуа проведут два боя

"But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua, the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder".

The WBC champion revealed he was willing to give Joshua home advantage for the huge world heavyweight fight for all the major world titles, and co-manager Shelly Finkel confirmed that terms had been accepted.

According to Pugmire, Wilder's and Joshua's respective teams were quibbling over the location of the fight, with Wilder's camp wanting it in the US and Joshua's side preferring the UK.

ESPN's Dan Rafael later quoted Shelly Finkel, Wilder's co-manager, as saying that the Wilder camp had agreed to terms with Joshua manager Eddie Hearn on a fight in the United Kingdom this fall, possibly as early as mid-September.

"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.

He tweeted: "The $50m offer for him to fight me next in the U.S. is still available".

Trump trade adviser: Harsh comments against Trudeau were a ‘mistake’
The tariffs threaten an ever-shrinking sector in Canada that lost 53,000 jobs between 2001 and 2014. The U.S. exports more vehicles to Canada than anywhere else in the world.

"It's taken him four weeks to come back to us but if he does want to fight Anthony Joshua and he does accept the deal then we want to try and get this booked in as soon as possible".

Hearn contacted Joshua this morning to discuss the latest developments with the deal, and is waiting to see whether Wilder will sign for the next fight with Joshua, who is also close to a WBA mandatory title defence against Alexander Povektin. AJ would want Wembley for a fight of this magnitude but if we do October or November you can't really do that outdoors. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

Joshua returned to Principality Stadium on March 31, when he out-boxed New Zealand's Joseph Parker to win a unanimous decision in their heavyweight title unification fight. "But obviously this Canelo fight on September 15 makes it a little more hard with U.S. TV".

Wilder and Joshua will put their undefeated heavyweight records on the line.

Wilder is 40-0 with 39 knockouts, while Joshua is 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

Hearn told Sky Sports News it is the only way to find out if the WBC titleholder Wilder is serious about fighting Joshua even though reports out of the United States on Monday suggested he had accepted a two fight deal with the 2012 Olympic champion and now holder of the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.
