Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder: Eddie Hearn says American's team are 'bluffing'

Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder: Eddie Hearn says American's team are 'bluffing'”

Meanwhile, America's Wilder is now the only man in Anthony Joshua's way of unifying the division for the WBC title, and there's a chance they both meet before this year runs out.

Deontay Wilder poses with trainer Marc Breland after knocking out Luis Ortiz in the tenth round of their WBC Heavyweight Championship fight at Barclays Center on March 3, 2018 in the Brooklyn Borough of New York City. Wilder said before serving as honorary pace vehicle driver for the NASCAR race at Talladega Superspeedway that the fight "will definitely happen".

Shelly Finkel, one of Wilder's managers, has told ESPN that the offer would include $50 million against 50 percent of the revenue at a site of Wilder's choosing between September and December.

Hearn likened the proposed offer from Wilder's team to an email scam.

Following Hearn's comments, Wilder again took to Instagram on Saturday where he criticised Joshua and his team, citing the offer that had been sent to his own team. "Normally they ask me to send $50,000 first and then they'll send it back". What do you expect me to do, 'Yeah that's fine, we'll take that.

Joshua, who beat Joseph Parker by unanimous decision to claim the WBO heavyweight title in Cardiff at the end of April, is now hanging out in Morocco while the offer saga rambles on. "If you've got it-show us it and then we can talk".

Wilder is confident that this fight will happen, and it will happen outside the United Kingdom, telling reporters that "it's just a matter of time". I think a lot of negotiations and different things are going on. The whole world is talking about this, the whole world wants it, so once it happens it's going to be epic.

He likes fast cars, counting a Lamborghini as part of his collection.
