Wilder gives Anthony Joshua 24hours to accept $50million offer
Joshua’s trainer Rob McCracken and promoter Eddie Hearn, received emails sent directly from Wilder’s personal address, with his promoter Shelly Finkel subsequently confirming an offer had been made.
Wilder also made an offer on Instagram and Joshua immediately responded saying he would accept if it was £50m.
“We want [Joshua] to fight Deontay in his next fight and we offered him $50m,” he told Sky Sports.
We were offered $12.5m (£8.8m) to fight him but we have offered four times that. If [Joshua] says he is not going to take $50m, it means he doesn’t really want to fight him next.
