WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has challenged WBA and IBF champion Anthony Joshua to a Las Vegas clash on November 11 after Wladimir Klitschko announced his retirement from boxing.

Joshua, who stopped Klitschko in their epic Wembley encounter in April, was expected to fight the future Hall of Famer in a rematch, with the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas pencilled in on that date for it.

Now that Wladimir has walked away from the sport, Joshua must now find a new opponent for his next fight and Wilder has offered himself up.
