Deontay Wilder Makes A Huge Offer To Fight Anthony Joshua

Deontay Wilder Makes A Huge Offer To Fight Anthony Joshuaā€¯

"All the money is in the bag so I expect you will be a man of your word", he said.

Wilder concluded his 30-second video by saying "I'll see you soon then" as he salutes.

The Alabama man released a video on Twitter explaining to Joshua that the $50 million that he was demanding to fight was guaranteed and that he had no way of backing out of such a fight.

Deontay Wilder tells TMZ Sports he's offered insane money to Anthony Joshua to make their mega-fight happen, and if Joshua passes, it's proof the Englishman is a COWARD.

Hearn, who is in NY for talks with the Wilder camp on Friday, acknowledged he received an email from Wilder confirming the big-money pledge, but Joshua's promoter will not take it seriously until he has proof the funds are in place.

The WBC king's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, said Joshua's team have 24 hours to respond to the take-it-or-leave-it offer, sent via email to AJ, Hearn, and his trainer Rob McCracken.

"But this fight, both the fighters are young and I believe the fight will probably happen next year".

"I've been taking advice and giving him advice on boxing because obviously, he knows how to bulk up and get in shape but he doesn't really know about boxing - he said it in his interview didn't he?" In my opinion it's got to be in the United Kingdom or possibly Vegas. It is a 50-50 split against a guarantee of $50m. We need to see how secure that is. So if the fight made $120m he would get another $10m. We're not undervaluing his guy. "It would be the first time that all four main world heavyweight titles were on the line in the same fight", says The Times.

The recent developments are a breath of fresh air compared to public comments from Hearn, who has erroneously maintained that Wilder doesn't want the fight. The two fighters haven't been able to reach an agreement due to a number of reasons but it appears that they might finally able to sign on the dotted lines according to the latest Instagram post from Wilder.

However, Finkel claims the British boxer will earn more than the proposed amount should the fight generate more than a $100 million at the end of the bout, but if it lost money, the Wilder side would be on the hook to pay Joshua.
