Wilder greeted confirmation that his fight with Joshua is about to be confirmed with this confident video posted on his social media channels.
Deontay Wilder will be sent a contract for the Anthony Joshua fight this week after the American "agreed" to a unification clash in the United Kingdom, says promoter Eddie Hearn.
Shelly Finkel, one of Wilder's co-managers, told ESPN that World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Wilder had accepted an offer by Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn for a fight in autumn. "Deontay sent an email to Joshua (Sunday) night and I sent one today to Barry Hearn and Eddie telling them that we officially accept the offer to fight under the terms they gave us and to send us the contract", Finkel added.
"It's taken him four weeks to come back to us but if he does want to fight Anthony Joshua and he does accept the deal then we want to try and get this booked in as soon as possible".
Joshua had been edging closer to fighting Alexander Povetkin, the mandatory challenger to his WBA title, after talks with Wilder's representatives had slowed in recent weeks.
"We're going to be dealing with it and we're going to be making sure he gets the relevant paperwork".

Another possible outlet is the Perform Group's DAZN sports streaming service, which is due to launch in the US later this summer, with Hearn's recently agreed to eight-year, $1 billion deal to provide boxing content due to begin in September. Hopefully, we'll get an answer in the next day or two.
Joshua, who won his first world title by stopping Charles Martin in 2016, scored his biggest victory to date the following year by rising from the canvas to knock out former champion Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 spectators in London.
Wilder offered up these comments as he confirmed he had agreed a deal to fight in the UK: "The $50m (£37m) offer for him to fight me in the USA is still available".
Joshua and Wilder would make more money if the fight was staged stateside, but Hearn has insisted his fighter is not concerned with fight purses.
Anthony Joshua holds numerous world titles.
