JOSHUA VS WILDER CLOSE- EDDIE HEARN

Tuesday, 05 June 2018 08:55

Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn has remained confident that Anthony Joshua's unification clash with Deontay Wilder will be agreed, and a decision could be made in the "next few days".

 

Negotiations continued between Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn and Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel in New York on Friday, with Joshua determined to have home advantage for a battle against Wilder for all the world heavyweight belts.

 

A date and venue is still be decided for the blockbuster bout, although Wembley has been mentioned as a potential location.

 

However, Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn recently revealed he was close to agreeing an alternative fight with Alexander Povetkin for September and Joshua-Wilder could be scheduled early next year, if the British star firstly takes a mandatory WBA title defence against the Russian.
