Wilder offers Joshua $50m for unification bout

The undefeated British world champion has 24 hours to respond to the money-spinning deal

'It's very nice of Deontay to make that offer, we need to see how secure that is, we need to see a contract, we want to know where it is and quite a lot of other things as well.

Prospects looms For a blockbuster World Title Unification Bout between the unbeaten heavyweights, as Deontay Wilder offered to Anthony Joshua a juicy deal on Wednesday.

Upon receiving the deal, Hearn revealed his scepticism of how realistic their intentions were, only for Finkel to speak directly to Sky Sports Head of Boxing Adam Smith on the matter to confirm it was.

The Matchroom promoter suggested that the offer was a "great PR stunt" but with the two promoters due to meet on Friday, he is now taking it seriously.

However, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said earlier this month that the WBA has ordered the Briton to enter into negotiations with mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

"It has to be the next fight for each of them", he said. "We'll see how badly he wants the fight", DiBella told the newspaper.

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

He won the Bronko Nagurski Award as the nation's best defender, and the Hendricks Award as the nation's best defensive end. Defensive end Mario Williams, the top pick in the 2006 draft, was the first in a trio of N.C.

The T-Mobile Arena in Nevada is the favored venue to maximise revenue for what would be the biggest heavyweight fight since Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson shared the ring in 2002.

Fury said: "I'm going to have a couple of warm-up fights then I'll be ready for them".

"I am finally back in shape and have set a date - it was Deontay Wilder who spurred me on because he said I could not do it, he said I was finished", said Fury.

"It's not a case of we sign the contract and they go and raise the money".

"But this is substantial money, and if there is something there then we will definitely look at it". They have asked us to give them written acceptance of the deal by tomorrow. We want to see the money and know were it is.

Earlier this month Hearn contacted Wilder advisor Al Haymon with a $12.5m offer to come to the United Kingdom and fight, insisting that it represented "five times what Deontay Wilder has made for any fight".

Speaking to iFL TV today, Fury claimed he speaks to IBF, WBA, and WBO champion Joshua often, receiving advice on "nutrition" in exchange for boxing lessons.
