WILDER OFFERED $100M DAZN DEAL



Deontay Wilder has reportedly been offered a mega deal to sign a three fight deal with DAZN.

DAZN have been in talks with Wilder with a view to securing a fight with Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight unification fight.

FOX Sports Mike Coppinger has reported that DAZN have offered Wilder a $100 million for the three fights, which include two against Anthony Joshua.

Wilder's team are in talks with DAZN direct, with John Skipper running the negotiations directly. Matchroom USA are not involved in negotiations.



Wilder is expected to earn $20m to face Dominic Breazeale, which would lead to two fights against Joshua for $40m each.

Eddie Hearn spoke to Sky Sports earlier this week to explain he will be taking a back seat on any talks with Wilder due to the bad feeling between Wilder's camp and the Joshua/Matchroom team.

"There's an opportunity for someone to be, of you like, a mediator to try and get it done," said Hearn.

"Clearly the relationship between Team Wilder and Team Joshua isn't the best. I think this is a route that is going to be very beneficial to making that undisputed fight.

"I think any input from me would be a negative one. In terms of trying to move things forward because of the relationship. So I'll be leaving it in the hands of the broadcasters to try and effectively be a mediator.

"It's not just about doing a deal with Wilder, it's about doing a deal with Joshua, for the fight.

"They've got their work cut out. But the pieces are coming together. There's a long way to go, a long way to go.

"We'll see where it goes. But there is now a strategy in place and a route in place that could lead us to an undisputed fight.

Al Haymon's PBC have announced a press conference for Tuesday, likely to be confirmation of the match up with Dominic Breazeale. Which TV company is showing that fight, will likely be revealed.

If this deal goes through, it would leave Tyson Fury with no chance of winning the World Title for at least a year, after his own big money move to Top Rank/ESPN.

Top Rank have also been in talks with Wilder so until a deal is signed with Wilder it is anyone's guess where he will end up.
