Wilder offers Joshua $50m for undisputed title fight

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel detailed the terms of the offer on Wednesday night

No offence to Deontay but I don't believe he has $50m but if we can receive some formal paperwork and proof of funds then it's definitely something we want to discuss.

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel says the offer includes a $50m flat fee and a 50 per cent share of the revenue generated by a showdown between the heavyweight division's only remaining world title holders.

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. "We have a meeting with their team on Friday so this will be top of the agenda".

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. They say a happy fighter is a unsafe one and I am very happy at the moment.

"I've got something special for you, By the way, all the money is in the bag".

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

Now however, it is understood that Wilder has made Joshua a $50 million (£35.9 million) offer to step into the ring together.

Accepting Wilder's offer would likely mean the date and venue for the fight would be set by the American's team.

Hearn insisted that he was taking the offer seriously although stated that he would be looking further into the actual details of the deal before signing anything.

"I spoke to AJ - he knows the situation but we want to know if it's real".

"I just sent them what they wanted".

I've had it. Let me tell you, when Christmas is every day it doesn't make you happy. I actually received an email from Deontay Wilder, offering Anthony $50m for the fight and he has to agree to the fight tomorrow (Thursday),' he told Sky Sports.

Fury's impending comeback has fuelled talk of potential duels with Wilder and fellow Brit Anthony Joshua, who now holds the three titles that Fury took from Klitschko in Dusseldorf two and a half years ago.

I was walking along the canal with my dog at the time and I thought 'I'm a fat pig look at the state of me.' I felt like jumping in the canal and drowning.
