America’s WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder has accepted to fight Anthony Joshua in Britain for the undisputed crown.
Briton Joshua (21-0) collected his fourth world heavyweight title belt on Saturday when he defeated Joseph Parker in Cardiff and then challenged Wilder (40-0) to a fight in Britain.
Wilder said, “Anthony, I am so glad we finally heard from you on Saturday and that you want to fight me as your next opponent and you want the fight to happen in the UK,” Wilder, 32, said in a statement.
“I accept that challenge and I am ready to come to the UK for my next fight. There is nothing on Team Wilder’s side to prevent me from fighting you next.
“Thanks Anthony, I can’t wait to meet you in the ring.”
