"If he prefers the fight in the UK, the ball is in their court. It's up to them to choose."

Eddie Hearn is understood to have been in talks with Alexander Povetkin as well as Wilder's camp and he wants Joshua, 28, to have a fight in the autumn and one in the spring.

Finkel added: "We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK.

"Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the UK.

"Deontay sent an email to Joshuay (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."
