If an agreement can be reached, it is expected that Twickenham would be chosen to showcase the highly anticipated contest between Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) and Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).

Promoter Eddie Hearn said recently that Wembley would be his first hoice, but Twickenham would be the next best thing.

“Wembley is quite difficult this year. We have already been in contact with them and the options aren’t great,” Hearn told The Mirror.

“We basically want the biggest possible stadium and if Wembley is not available, the next best would be Twickenham.”
