That was being drawn up on Tuesday and will be in front of Wilder by Friday at the latest and his response, having evidently agreed all terms, will determine if he is Joshua's next opponent, or if the Brit fights him next spring once Povetkin has been faced.

Wilder now holds the WBC title, with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, and the fight will see the victor taking all of it home.

Location seemed to be the largest stumbling block in the talks between the fighters" camps as both men wanted home advantage and "AJ' has seemingly won out after admitting that he'd be happy to take a lesser purse to have the contest take place in the UK.

The location had proved to be one of the main issues in negotiating the fight over the past two months; Wilder's team offered Joshua a reported $50m (£37m) to fight in the United States but the 28-year-old Briton has remained adamant he wants to fight in the UK. Team Joshua offered Wilder way less and Deontay still said yes.

The Joshua-Wilder deal, should it come to fruition, will consist of two fights, the first being held in England, the second in the United States.

"We see this as a Wembley fight and we're quite limited in that respect", said Hearn.

When Trump met Kim: 11 quotes from their historic meeting
But for the US, Mr Trump says the meeting was justified because it led to a "secured commitment for complete denuclearisation". During his explanation for ending war games with South Korea, Trump included the weird boast that "I know a lot about planes".

And the fact that we've lost four weeks in waiting for an answer from Deontay Wilder makes the fight happening in 11 or 12 weeks of this magnitude unlikely. "It's up to them to choose".

Should Joshua, 28, fight the American next, the victor would become the first heavyweight to hold all four recognised world titles at once.

Joshua told Independent.ie in March that he was keen to fight Wilder in his next fight and now it seems a deal has been done for what could be the richest fight in the sport's history.

Joshua has won all but one of his fights by knockout as well, bringing a 21-0 record into the awaited megafight after first gaining widespread notoriety in his classic April 2017 match-up with Vladimir Klitschko where he added the WBA and IBO belts to his impressive list of accolades. It will take place in the United Kingdom either September or October according to Eddie Hearn.

"I think if it is before Povetkin then it runs on October/November".
