The Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder unification fight has taken the first positive step towards happening in a long, long time this week.

If money talks then Wilder might find the following too good to turn down as he weighs up his options.

Reporter Mike Coppinger has disclosed the following on Twitter:

A serious, serious offer that could give boxing fans the fight they’ve been wanting for over a year now.

Here’s how the boxing community has been reacting to the news so far:

It looks like whatever Wilder decides that he is still facing his mandatory in Dominic Breazeale next up but if he were to go for it you’d have to imagine fight number two would be against Joshua and most likely before the end of this year.

Exciting times for the heavyweight division once again.

Big respect to DAZN for shaking things up and tabling such a huge offer to try to get this fight on.
