'Deontay sent an email to Joshua on Sunday night and I sent one today to Barry Hearn and Eddie telling them that we officially accept the offer to fight under the terms they gave us and to send us the contract'. He insisted on having the fight there, even if the overall revenue for the event could be greater in Las Vegas.

Deas said he's not authorized to discuss details of the potential purse and that the venue and date are up to Joshua's camp.

Wilder's move is a significant step in getting arguably the biggest fight of the year on.

If the Wilder fight is next up for Joshua, then the original plan of September 15 is now highly unlikely due to the lack of time involved, as well as the U.S. television clash with Canelo Alvarez's return from a drug's ban.

Wilder owns the WBC strap, while Joshua holds the IBF, WBA Super and WBO titles.

"They gave us an offer, we were hoping they'd accept the U.S offer instead because there's so much money but instead, since they haven't, we've decided that if you don't want $50 million then we're willing to come the United Kingdom and take your offer".

Starsport understands it is considerably more than the £9.3m that Hearn originally offered Wilder back in early April. That seems unlikely because we are now four weeks on, plus it clashes with Canelo. "Deontay wrote to Joshua and said 'Hey, I accept your offer, let's fight in the U.K'".

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK", Wilder was quoted by ESPN as saying.

"I think Wembley is where Anthony Joshua wants it to take place". It's up to them to choose USA or UK. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), 32, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, won his belt in 2015 and has made seven title defenses, including scoring a massive 10th-round knockout of then-unbeaten top contender Luis "King Kong" Ortiz in a riveting fight on March 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Should Joshua, 28, fight the American next, the victor would become the first heavyweight to hold all four recognised world titles at once.

As Wilder said, the ball is in the court of team Joshua now.
