Deontay Wilder would welcome an undisputed title fight with Anthony Joshua if the conditions are acceptable, says Shelly Finkel, co-manager of the WBC champ.

The American heavyweight is expected to confirm his next WBC title fight in the next few weeks, after Tyson Fury has decided not to do an immediate rematch after his draw in December.

Wilder is expected to return to a possible venue for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on May 18, while Joshua announced his US debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1. Live on Sky Sports Box Office.

But Wilder remains open to a blockbuster fight with Joshua for all four world titles, provided that a favorable deal can be made between the two champions.

"If conditions are right, Deontay would like to fight Anthony Joshua," Finkel said Sky sports.

Dominic Breazeale has proposed a fight against Wilder, who was initially named as the WBC's mandatory challenger after defeating Eric Molina in November 2017.

The Californian was recently ordered to fight Dillian Whyte for the WBC Transitional Belt, but hopes to get a shot at Wilder.

"Of course I want to fight for the World Championship title, but at the same time I understand that the fans see me and Dillian Whyte fighting," Breazeale said Sky sports, "I'm a fan fan and I'm ready to fight.
