Eddie Hearn responds to Deontay Wilder's $50 offer to fight Anthony Joshua

Fury said he does not "fear" compatriot and WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua or WBC title-holder Wilder. A fight Joshua would settle once and for all which heavyweight champion is the better boxer.

The deal, which comes after Eddie Hearn offered Wilder a flat fee of £8.8m earlier this month, would see AJ earn the astronomical figure or 50 per cent of the fight purse - depending on which is bigger.

This follows a well-publicised projection from Hearn that the bout could gross well over £100 million from ticket sales and pay-per-view costs.

American Wilder posted a video on Twitter which shows Joshua saying he would accept the fight for $50m.

A clash between the two unbeaten boxers is the fight everyone wants to see and on Wednesday, American Wilder announced he had something in the mail for Joshua - a $50m offer.

"Wilder and Joshua are good fighters and good champions, but I believe my talent, skill and confidence alone are enough to beat them".

Both fighters now hold all four major world titles between them and speculation of a bout has increased since Joshua defeated Joseph Parker last month to unify the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO titles.

"It said to please respond by tomorrow, which makes it feel like a PR move, especially since it has come from Deontay". Originally Wilder was fine with coming to the United Kingdom for a stadium fight against Joshua in the late summer.

However, all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore, has failed to fire till now. The reward for his persistence were the wickets of Raina and MS Dhoni in successive overs.

Indeed, fight fans will be praying that this whopping heavyweight title fight can be made as both teams get set to meet one another on Friday.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn is in NY for the Daniel Jacobs fight, and was set to meet with Wilder's management team for negotiations, with Wilder telling TMZ that "I'm just ready to do what I got to do". "But we have to take it seriously".

"A lot of the time, fighters throw out insane numbers", he said. "All the money is in the bag and I expect you to be a man of your word".

"Whether that can be done, we will see".

Deontay Wilder has other options for potential opponents if contract negotiations with Anthony Joshua fail to finalize.

"But this is substantial money, and if there is something there then we will definitely look at it".

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

I think the two-and-a-half years out of the ring helped me. We need to know where it is, when it is.
