TERMS for an Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder unification fight must be agreed by December if the American is to be his next opponent, insists Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

The WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion furthered his reputation with Saturday’s clinical seventh-round stoppage of Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley, where he is already scheduled to fight again on April 13.

Joshua has repeatedly said that Wilder would be his chosen opponent, even with the WBC champion scheduled to fight Tyson Fury in America on December 1.
