Hearn demands to see money before agreeing Joshua/Wilder deal

May JohnsonApr 28, 2018

Late last night, the undefeated WBC world champion took to social media, challenging the unified heavyweight king.

The purse-split and choice of venue are understood to have been wedge issues, to this point preventing fans from looking ahead to a heavyweight fight for the ages.

Tyson Fury says being written off by Deontay Wilder gave him the motivation to make a return he hopes will see him "set the heavyweight division on fire".

In a Twitter video posted Wednesday, the American backed up reports that his camp had emailed Britain's Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn an offer of a minimum of $50 million.

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

His biggest challenge will be Anthony Joshua who holds the IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO titles. "It's a wonderful PR move but we'll see". Originally Wilder was fine with coming to the United Kingdom for a stadium fight against Joshua in the late summer. If the fight generated more than $100 million, which Finkel believes it could, Joshua would make even more, and if it lost money, the Wilder side would be on the hook to pay Joshua.

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

Madrid beats Bayern 2-1 away to take control of semifinal
I'm enjoying my football in Madrid and I admit that Bayern have always been one of the best sides in European football. Bayern Munich have been revitalised by Jupp Heynckes after a awful start to the season under Carlo Ancelotti.

"It has to be the next fight for each of them", he said.

In the video, Wilder tells the camera: "Anthony - tell Eddie and Barry [Hearn] to check their email".

Previously Wilder, 32, said "all the money is in the bag so I expect you will be a man of your word".

After beating Bermane Stiverne for the second time in November past year, Wilder was thought to be worth $16m (£12.2m).

Joshua has been given 24 hours to sign the contract by Wilder's boss Shelly Finkel.

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. Al Haymon and I have never not delivered what we've offered. "We have a meeting with their team on Friday so this will be top of the agenda".
