Eddie Hearn: Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder Will Happen If Both Keep Winning

Anthony Joshua's promoter has no doubt the long-awaited heavyweight bout between Joshua and Deontay Wilder will happen at some point.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Eddie Hearn said both fighters just have to keep winning their matches to set up the showdown everyone wants to see.

Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, told ESPN's Dan Rafael on June 12 that both fighters agreed to terms on a two-fight deal with the first bout taking place this fall in the United Kingdom.

Four days later, Joshua officially signed on to defend the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on Sept. 22.

Joshua's deal also includes an April 13 bout at Wembley Stadium if he defeats Povetkin, though an official opponent has yet to be announced.
