World heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua look set to meet next in an epic collision of heavyweight might and a fight between the two men who currently hold all four recognized world title belts.
Simply put, the fight would establish an undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at this time.
Sure, 2019 will see Tyson Fury say something about that, no doubt.
But for now as Fury continues to get back in shape and makes a comeback, Joshua and Wilder are seen as the best of the heavyweights at this time.
Wilder announced today that he accepted Joshua’s offer to fight in the UK next up and has also given him the option of going to the US too of $50 million.
Surely Joshua will agree and send the contract to Wilder. All looks set for things to be signed this week.
Fans have been reacting in their droves to today’s massive news in the sport:
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that wilder has been calling out Aj for some time now , he’s been way more vocal about the fight than Aj

I think that Wilder wants the fight, AJ and Eddie Hearn don’t.
AJ is a global superstar and can make billions without risking to fight Wilder, while Wilder cannot make the same money he would make with AJ fighting somebody else.

Disagree aj wants it but wilder knows he’ll get Ko’d so trying to get his final pay day(which ya can’t blame him for)

End of the day Deontay is doing the best to make it happen, unlike Joshua, I think Joshua doesn’t want the fight, Wilder is to dangerous for him and in my opinion would beat him!

Slowly starting to think it may be @EddieHearn and @anthonyfjoshua that are the ones not keen to make this fight ????
