Eddie Hearn says a fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder could happen in November or December 2019, but there are still several hurdles to clear .
Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder’s potential mouthwatering unification fight has edged closer, with “a clear desire from both sides to make the fight”, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.
WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Joshua makes his US debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Meanwhile Wilder recently failed to agree terms over a rematch with Tyson Fury and has since been ordered to defend his WBC title against Dominic Breazeale.
Hearn told Sky Sports last month he hopes both men can meet after their respective fights and has now indicated Joshua is closing in on his shot at becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
