Eddie Hearn 'very confident' Anthony Joshua will face Deontay Wilder after starting talks with the American's team
Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has said he is 'very confident' that a fight with Deontay Wilder will be agreed to after opening negotiations with the American's team.
Joshua called out the WBC champion in the aftermath of his unanimous points victory over Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium last Saturday - which saw him add the WBO belt to his IBF, IBO and WBA straps.
The American quickly responded to his rival, issuing a statement on Tuesday to insist he is 'ready' to cross the pond to face him in a blockbuster heavyweight showdown.
