ANTHONY JOSHUA’s team have made a fresh offer to Deontay Wilder for an April showdown at Wembley.

Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, promised a new deal would be put forward to the American’s team after the WBO, WBA and IBF champion’s win over Alexander Povetkin.

It is believed that offer is in excess of £15.5m ($20m).

WBC heavyweight champion Wilder is due to face Tyson Fury on December 1 in Los Angeles.

But Joshua’s team want a deal agreed for their April 13 date at Wembley before Wilder steps into the ring against Fury.

Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn confirmed on Twitter that an improved offer has been made.

He wrote: “So now a new improved offer has been made to Wilders camp let’s see if they will finally agree to a meeting to discuss or not.

“Fans will find out if both sides really want this fight and I know AJ does. No obstacles from our end so just waiting for a response.”

It is understood to be around £4m more than the last offer made to the American.

However, it is unlikely that Wilder or his team will enter into negotiations while their man is preparing to face Fury.

They are currently in Los Angeles on the third leg of their three-city promotional tour for that fight.

Wilder’s team made an offer of around £38m to Joshua earlier this year but they turned to Fury when it was not accepted.
