GETTY IMAGES Deontay Wilder has agreed to terms to fight Anthony Joshua in the UK

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel revealed a rematch clause was part of the original offer from Hearn.

'In addition to that, today I agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the U.K. If Joshua prefers the fight in the United Kingdom. the ball is in their court.

Talks between Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and Finkel have been ongoing for several weeks, but a deal seemed to be out of reach as the two parties failed to agree terms last month, despite claims Wilder had offered his rival a $50m deal to fight in America.

As evidence of the moneymaking potential, the Los Angeles Times' Lance Pugmire reported in May that Finkel and Al Haymon were prepared to give Joshua $50 million guaranteed if he was willing to fight Wilder in the United States. "Deontay has accepted his terms to fight in the U.K. Deontay sent an email to Joshua [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".

If Joshua doesn't fight Wilder next, he'll make a mandatory defense of his WBA title against Russia's Alexander Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs).

There is a lot of sorting out to do for this fight, but great news that in principle he seems to be on board for the idea of coming to the United Kingdom for the fight. "We wanted a percentage, but we didn't think we could get it done in a quick time frame, so we said let's take what they've offered us". Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.

"If for any reason Anthony changes his mind and wants to fight in the U.S, the $50m offer we have made to him is still there". It's up to them to choose U.S. or UK.

Joshua returned to Principality Stadium on March 31, when he out-boxed New Zealand's Joseph Parker to win a unanimous decision in their heavyweight title unification fight.

Joshua told Independent.ie in March that he was keen to fight Wilder in his next fight and now it seems a deal has been done for what could be the richest fight in the sport's history.

Wilder now holds the WBC title, with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, and the fight will see the victor taking all of it home.

Wilder and Joshua will put their undefeated heavyweight records on the line. "If it is before Povetkin, then it runs on October or November".
