Deontay Wilder's Team Offers Anthony Joshua $50 Million to Fight in Fall

ESPN reported that both camps had confirmed the offer, adding that it was for one fight, with no rematch clause, and would have to be the next bout for each fighter.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Finkel confirmed a take-it-or-leave it $50m (£35.9m) offer had been made, with a deadline of "close of play on Thursday" (Friday 12am United Kingdom time).

"With all due respect to Deontay Wilder, I don't believe he has $50m", Hearn said. Deontay Wilder's sent the letter and said "you've got to sign the contract tomorrow and there's a fight".

Joshua, trainer Rob McCracken and promoter Eddie Hearn received emails sent directly from the Bronze Bomber's personal address, with his promoter Shelly Finkel subsequently confirming an offer had been made.

The end of the video showed footage from a previous Joshua interview in which he stated he would face Wilder if their team brought him $50 million up front.

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

"There's no second fight in the offer". Al Haymon and I have never not delivered what we've offered.

"We want [Joshua] to fight Deontay in his next fight and we offered him US$50m", Finkel told Sky Sports UK.

Hearn has been targeting a stadium showdown between the two fighters at Wembley.

"No disrespect to Deontay but I don't believe he has that kind of money so I want to know where it's coming from and who is paying it". Joshua has a number of existing broadcast deals in multiple territories [though he is a free agent in the U.S.]. "We don't have a problem doing it in America, even though we'd like to do it in the U.K".

Joshua, 28, won his first world title in 2016 and has made five defenses, taking his record to 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), 32, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, won his belt in 2015 and has made seven title defenses, including scoring a massive 10th-round knockout of then-unbeaten top contender Luis "King Kong" Ortiz in a riveting fight on March 3 at Barclays Center.
