"It's great that he's come back to us".

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 USA and Joshua's side preferring the UK.

'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'.

That was being drawn up on Tuesday and will be in front of Wilder by Friday at the latest and his response, having evidently agreed all terms, will determine if he is Joshua's next opponent, or if the Brit fights him next spring once Povetkin has been faced.

Joshua is keen to return to Wembley stadium, which was the venue of his epic victory over Wladimir Klitschko, but Hearn admits a September fight looks "unlikely" and could be forced to push the date back, if it does take place this year.

Neymar is now level with Romario and only behind Ronaldo (62) and Pele (77) in Brazil's all-time record scoring charts. He joked about Austria's rough approach. "When we get him in the last third of the field he is lethal".

However, a massive update took place on Monday night as WBC champion Wilder revealed that he'd accepted Joshua's terms to fight in the United Kingdom.

"We have agreed to the terms that [Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn] has put out to us for a fight in the UK", Finkel said.

Although Finkel wouldn't specify how much money Wilder would earn, Hearn has made two previous offers of $12.5 million and $15 million.

"There's no [percentage] split, but they've offered us a good purse".

"If they keep their word, then we've got a fight", Deas said.

Wilder's team have also left the £37m offer made to Joshua in April on the table if the WBA, WBO and IBF champion changes his mind and wants to travel to the USA for the fight instead.

Last night, he tweeted: "Breaking news for all you for all you Anthony Joshua fans".

Hearn had claimed recently that Joshua could face Russian Alexander Povetkin, who is mandatory for his WBA title, in September before a Wilder clash in February. "It's up to them to choose".

Joshua, 28, won his first world title in 2016 and has made five defenses, taking his record to 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

The offer also includes a rematch clause, which Joshua and his team insisted on, and Wilder is happy to accept that also.
