Deontay Wilder offers Anthony Joshua $70m purse for world heavyweight unification fight

Deontay Wilder offers Anthony Joshua $70m purse for world heavyweight unification 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.

"I've got something special for you". "By the way, all the money's in the bag".

'We need to see a contract, we need to know where it is and quite a lot of other things but we're definitely interested to look at those numbers'.

Shelly Finkel, Wilder's co-manager, confirmed to ESPN that the offer sent was indeed $50 million against 50 percent of the revenue the fight would generate.

"I got an email from Deontay Wilder, basically offering a 50/50 split of the fight, which isn't of interest, but with a $50m guarantee which is of interest", Hearn told iFL TV.

Wilder's team reportedly want the fight to take place between September and December - and at a venue of their choice.

"If that's the case, Wilder's team bring me $50m up front and I'll take the fight".

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

"If Anthony Joshua wants to fight Deontay Wilder, he now has an extraordinary offer to accept".

'If he's saying he's not going to take $50m then he didn't really want to fight him next, because he's getting 50 per cent anyway.

The American boxer personally sent a $50m offer to Joshua, Hearn and Rob McCracken by email - and also sent a tweet reminding AJ that he said he would accept a $50m offer.

"I am looking forward to our meeting in the ring".

Representatives for the two fighters have been in discussions since Joshua beat Joseph Parker and they are due for further talks this week. Wilder would like the fight to be in the U.S., but his promoter told Sky Sports that is not a deal-breaking point. While he is here, he, Finkel and Haymon are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss a Joshua-Wilder deal.

"More of a PR move than anything", Hearn told Sky Sports. I'd like to see a contract and see where the money is coming from, and the location of the fight is important.
