Barry Hearn gives an update on talks for Anthony Joshua-Deontay Wilder fight

Negotiations for Anthony Joshua’s huge unification fight with Deontay Wilder are progressing, but must be “accelerated”, says Matchroom chairman Barry Hearn.

Talks are ongoing for Joshua to face Wilder next, with all of the world heavyweight belts at stake, although the British star has also been ordered by the WBA to make a mandatory title defence against Alexander Povetkin.

Anthony Joshua-Deontay Wilder negotiations must be accelerated, says Barry Hearn

If Wilder wants to come to the UK, I’ll deposit his entire purse in advance to any bank he wants, and it takes me about five minutes.

Barry Hearn

“I’ve heard a lot of people talk about money in boxing. When we talk about money, we back it up.

“If Wilder wants to come to the UK, I’ll deposit his entire purse in advance to any bank he wants, and it takes me about five minutes. I expect the same honesty on the other side, and maybe, hopefully, that is available.

“But there are lots of small details, which at the last minute, each one of them could be a deal breaker. We’re not going to tell you we’re close, I’m saying we’re on the way, but the clock is ticking and we have to move.”

Watch Adonis Stevenson vs Badou Jack, in Toronto, in the early hours of Sunday, May 19, from 2.30am, live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action.
