Hearns revealed that Joshua has been there and believes Klitschko will buy into the proposal.
“I’ve been in Vegas with AJ, officially applying for my Nevada boxing license to promote there and that went well,” Hearns told Sky Sports.
“I met with the MGM and met with the T-Mobile Arena, Vegas is the front runner and November 11 is the date that is penciled in.
“It will probably take a couple of weeks to get everything over the line, but I believe Klitschko will take this fight and believe Vegas will be the one.
“AJ has been over there for about 10 days and has enjoyed himself and got to know the area a little bit.
“The amount of British fight fans that would travel there, it will be a momentous occasion and one that we will savour for a long time so fingers crossed it’s a party in Las Vegas on November 11.”
Hearns’ optimism about the fight holding in Las Vegas has also been echoed by Stephen Espinosa who heads Showtime, an American broadcast company.
THEWILL recalls that Joshua beat Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, UK, in April.
