Anthony Joshua receives $50M fight offer from Deontay Wilder

Anthony Joshua receives $50M fight offer from Deontay Wilder”

Between them Joshua and Wilder hold all the heavyweight titles and a unification bout would generate huge interest. "That's not the end of the world if the deal is right", Hearn said. Let's see who wants to make the fight. If the fight generated more than $100 million, which Finkel believes it could, Joshua would make even more, and if it lost money, the Wilder side would be on the hook to pay Joshua.

"It has to be the next fight for each of them", he said.

"I think that's better than anybody Wilder has fought to this point and also Wladimir Klitschko, although he was coming off a loss against Tyson Fury, he was still very unsafe that night and proved it by decking Joshua".

After beating Bermane Stiverne for the second time in November previous year, Wilder was thought to be worth $16m (£12.2m).

The T-Mobile Arena in Nevada is the favored venue to maximise revenue for what would be the biggest heavyweight fight since Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson shared the ring in 2002.

Hearn insisted that he was taking the offer seriously although stated that he would be looking further into the actual details of the deal before signing anything. But we're definitely interested to look at those numbers'.

"I spoke to AJ and he knows the situation", said the Matchroom Boxing boss.

With all due respect you know Al and I for a long time and you know this is not a publicity stunt. Is it real? We're going to find out.

"Anthony, get your man Eddie and [his father] Barry Hearn to check their email".

The controversial Wythenshawe fighter's homecoming at Manchester Arena on June 9 will see him return to the division after two and a half years away.

He said: "The offer was received from a personal email account from Deontay Wilder".

According to Punch, Joshua, who unified the World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organization heavyweight titles by out-pointing New Zealand's Joseph Parker on March 31, had already been recorded saying he'd "take $50 million up front" to fight Wilder.
