The famous $50 million offer tabled to Anthony Joshua for a showdown and a chance to unify the belts with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder just won’t seem to go away.
In recent weeks fellow promotional stablemate to Joshua, Dillian Whyte even admitted that he saw that the offer was legitimate recently on his travels to the US when he met with various players about the possibility of changing networks.
Essentially, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn says that he received the offer personally via email from Deontay Wilder himself and that they never saw a contract for the offer nor was able to get a meeting to formally discuss the offer with Wilder’s team.
At the Anthony Joshua vs Jarrell Miller press conference this week one reporter brought up the offer to which Joshua angrily reacted to and told him to ‘get his facts straight’.
As well as promoter Eddie Hearn also shutting down the question entirely:
Joshua takes on Jarrell Miller next up on June 1st at Madison Square Garden.
Currently Wilder is still in negotiations for a rematch with Tyson Fury expected to happen over the coming months or in the early summer.
All three heavyweights Joshua, Wilder and Fury have yet to suffer defeat in their careers thus far as professional fighters at this time.
