Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder: Will it happen?

Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder: Will it happen?

The two champions are now in negotiations for a mega unification clash after the American's team gave Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn a Thursday night midnight deadline to accept an offer.

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

"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".

"I hope they accept. Deontay is thrilled and believes Joshua will take it." .

"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 risky that night and proved it by decking Joshua".

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), the WBC champion, posted a video on social media in which he instructed Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) and his promoters to check their email for an offer.

"He was like, who is putting the money up?" - I cant answer that question at the moment. When is it? - I cant answer that question at the moment - but the amount is of interest.

"It was $50m against 50 percent".

Morecambe's Tyson Fury claims he could beat reigning world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder with "a hand tied behind my back".

"It could be a case of get Anthony to agree then try and sell the fight to the highest bidder". We need to know where it is, when it is. It is all great having complete control of the show but you obviously have to bear that in mind as well.

'We really want to do the fight in the United Kingdom because we've built something special there.

Deontay Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel says they have offered a $50m "take it or leave it" offer to fight Anthony Joshua, and want a response within 24 hours.

"This is where it is clever". It's $50 million guaranteed. We're trying to make the biggest fight of this generation - that's what this is. But it is not going to make that.

Finkel added that the offer includes no rematch clause and that it would be the next fight for each boxer, taking place between September and December at a venue of Wilder's choice. "It has to be the next fight for each of them".
