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

A title unification fight with World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Wilder seems imminent in what is certainly the biggest and most lucrative contest in boxing today. Wilder would like the fight to be in the U.S., but his promoter told Sky Sports that is not a deal-breaking point.

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.

Deontay Wilder, one of boxings heavyweight champions looks to unify the belts by making Anthony Joshua a huge offer.

However, Joshua's promoter Hearn believes it is simply a PR move as while he received an offer letter, he did not receive an actual contract with specific details such as where the fight would take place.

No deal has yet been reached for Britain's WBA, IBF and WBO champion to face the Alabama banger, with Joshua's team believing their man deserves the bigger stake in the fight.

"More of a PR move than anything", Hearn told Sky Sports. If Anthony Joshua agrees to Deontay Wilder's proposal, they will begin contract negotiations for an epic fight, which would be scheduled for the fall.

"Not this weekend, but if the money is there and the venue is to our liking, the money is secure and the other rights are taken care of there is a real strong chance this fight could happen", Hearn said.

"I've been giving him good advice about slipping and moving and sliding shots, how to take a shot and roll it and then slip and come back".

Mitchell scores 33, Jazz rout Thunder 113-96
The former MA governor and GOP presidential candidate wore a No. 5 Jazz jersey over a buttoned-down dress shirt during the game. Romney and the Jazz fans must be happy, because they ended up winning the game and are up 3 to 1 in the best-of-seven series.

"Joseph Parker was an undefeated WBO champ and was better than anyone Wilder has fought". They say a happy fighter is a unsafe one and I am very happy at the moment.

"We don't how real it is", Hearn said, as quoted on BoxingScene.

After beating Bermane Stiverne for the second time in November a year ago, Wilder was thought to be worth $16m (£12.2m). So I expect you to be a man of your word'. "But it's also a giant fight", Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel said, as per ESPN.

Dear Eddie, With all due respect you know Al and I for a long time and you knowthis is not a Publicity stunt.

I think the two-and-a-half years out of the ring helped me.

"There are loads of things we need to know".

Hearn added: "We really want to do the fight in the UK".
