Wilder offers $50M to Joshua for unification fight

Deontay Wilder's team have made Anthony Joshua a $50million offer to fight him

Hearn confirmed it was an offer.

Hearn and Wilder's promoter Shelly Finkel are set to meet on Friday to discuss the unification fight which would see all four major heavyweight belts up for grabs.

Wilder announced on social media Wednesday he had something in the mail for Joshua he would like.

Wilder then added: "I'll see you soon then".

Hearn, in a recent interview with BoxingScene, explained that Joshua-Wilder was a contest where the overall revenue (after all expenses) would fall around $40 million.

"We are really glad that Anthony Joshua said for the first time 'I will fight Deontay next.' and we believe he is a man of his word".

WBC champion Wilder wants the fight to happen next and that is a stipulation in the offer.


At that point, Wilder's video cut to video of an interview Joshua gave earlier this month to Sky Sports, the broadcast outlet he has a deal with in the United Kingdom, in which he said of a possible Wilder fight, "I'll take $50 million up front".

It seems that this latest offer can confirm whether or not Eddie Hearn is truly afraid that his fighter will lose to Wilder.

Joshua and Hearn thought any deal would be for two fights, with an automatic rematch.

Matchroom chief Hearn was set to meet with Wilder's team in NY today but that meeting has been pushed back until tomorrow. "However, if they actually send some formal paperwork and a contract along with further details on how this money will be secured, we will definitely have to take this seriously".

"They said we have to accept the fight by [Thursday], which is ridiculous when we have questions that need to be answered", Hearn said.

"We have a meeting on Friday, so let's see how real this is". "We don't have a problem doing it in America, even though we'd like to do it in the U.K".

Following his points win over Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium, Joshua won the WBO heavyweight world title, adding the belt to his impressive haul which includes the IBF, WBA (super) and IBO straps. If it does $200 million, he gets $100 million.
