It looks as though Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder is going to happen in 2018.

That’s if we can believe promoter Eddie Hearn, who pretty much confirmed as much on Thursday afternoon.

“Deontay Wilder is doing a great job of convincing people that AJ is running from this fight,” Hearn told Sky Sports News.

“Our job to deliver but it doesn’t happen overnight. This first meeting today may go well, it may go terribly, but fans need to know we want the fight. It will happen in 2018 unquestionably.”

Hearns' comments come after the two fighters have exchanged words amid speculation of doing battle early in the new year.

Of course, there’s still plenty of negotiating to be done before the fight can be officially confirmed.

The biggest question all boxing fans are asking is: ‘Where will the fight be held?’

Wilder has already admitted that he’s happy to come to the UK to take on the IBF, WBA and IBO champion.

“If you want to stay at home like a little girl, this king has no problem travelling to knock out the champion,” Wilder said.

Of course, Wilder has triumphed in the UK before.

Back in 2013, he took on Audley Harrison at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.

And it took the American just 1 minute 10 seconds to destroy the Brit, sending him into retirement.

Incidentally, a certain Anthony Joshua was in the crowd that night and, rather incredibly, his reaction after the fight can be seen.

Some eagle-eyed boxing fans noticed that Joshua was laughing after Wilder dispatched Harrison was ease, leaving his compatriot sprawled out on the canvas.

And this is the reaction from boxing fans that, after watching the fight back, have only just noticed Joshua laughing whilst he was ringside.

We doubt Joshua will be laughing when he steps in the ring with Wilder, though.

He’s fully aware of the damage his potential opponent can do having seen it first hand back in 2013.
