News is coming from Against The Ropes one of the UK’s leading boxing news cites that Deontay Wilder has released a statement agreeing to accept the terms of Anthony Joshua’s challenge to fight in the UK. Both Wilder and Anthony Joshua have been able to maintain perfect professional records.
A gold medalist in the Olympics Anthony Joshua is currently the biggest name in boxing and will be looking to unify the Heavyweight title when he faces Deontay Wilder, in an effort to become the first Heavyweight from Britain since Lenox Lewis to do that.
