Shelly Finkel, Deontay Wilder’s co-manager says the undefeated American is waiting to get a deal from Anthony Joshua’s camp.

Eddie Hearn, promoter for Joshua is quite confident a deal can be reached with “The Bronze Bomber’s” team, as the undefeated Brit is eager to add the WBC to his belts.

The Matchroom Boxing boss is meeting with Joshua and his trainer McCracken to discuss a deal, and Finkel expects to have an answer soon.

“We’re ready and waiting,” Finkel exclusively told Sky Sports. “He’s [Eddie Hearn] coming back to us with an offer and we’re waiting for it today.

“The fact is – we want the fight. Deontay has sent out a personal letter to the public and to Joshua: ‘I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to fight you at a 60-40. I’m ready to fight you in the UK. My team, you asked to meet with yours – they’re ready. Just let us know when and there is nothing on our side as an impediment.’

“He ended it with: ‘I can’t wait to meet you in the ring,’ that’s what we want. It’s the only thing we’re pursuing. That’s the only thing to do.”

“The deal was 50-50 with Klitschko,” said Finkel. “The [Wilder] fight should be bigger than Klitschko.

 

“We already said we would accept less than Klitschko. The fight with Parker was 33 [per cent to Parker].

 

“This is way bigger and Deontay is way bigger than Parker. We said we would take 40.

 

“Hopefully today or tomorrow, we’ll have an offer from them, because that’s what he’s said he’s doing.”
