EDDIE HEARN has revealed terms have been agreed for Anthony Joshua’s mouth-watering clash with Wladimir Klitschko.
The Matchroom promoter is now finalising which titles will be on the line after Tyson Fury vacated the WBO, IBO and WBA heavyweight belts last week.
Joshua will defend his IBF heavyweight title and Hearn wants to get as many straps on the line as possible for the bout which is believed to be worth at least £15m.
When the belt situation is finalised, both fighters will sign for the December 10 bout.
Hearn revealed the fight will definitely not be at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff and Starsport understands 20,000-seater Manchester Arena will be the host.
It is believed the promoter had initially looked at staging the fight in Wales but was told it was booked by David Haye for December 10, only to find out after that the former heavyweight champion has since cancelled.
Hearn said: “Basically the deal is done with us and Klitschko, but we have had to sort out the US TV issue which is now sorted out.
“Now we are just making sure when we make our announcement we announce what belts are on the line rather than announcing two and then adding a couple.
“I would say the terms are agreed but there are things that have to fall into place for it to be signed. It is not signed yet.”
