The two fighters are increasingly looking likely to face each other following Joshua’s win over Robert Helenius.
So much so that Eddie Hearn confirmed that a fight could be finalized in the next three weeks following the Joshua win.
And now Wilder has increased the hopes of that happening with potentially two fights on the cards in Saudi and Africa.
“As far as the boxing stuff, everybody knows the Joshua situation. That is serious. That is real. And that is one that is up next. And we’re looking forward to that. I’m getting into camp real soon for that.
“I’ll be promoting that within the next few months or so. And finally get that showdown on, once and for all. I think it’s gonna be a great, great fight between me and him.
“I’m actually working on a two-fight deal with me and Joshua. One up in Saudi Arabia, and the other one up in—we’re going back to the motherland, Africa,” Wilder
Much in the same way, Joshua has reciprocated those comments by indicating his intention to fight Wilder.
Since both fighters do not possess any world titles, no other fight could generate the pair multi-millions.
And given that fans had seen the fight slip away in 2019, when the undisputed heavyweight championship could have been made, Joshua is keen to get the fight over the line.

“In reality we’re trying to schedule a fight for December so unfortunately no. That’s the time scale we’re looking forward to really. In reality I’m going to focus on the Wilder fight for now,” Joshua
