Wilder offered $100m DAZN deal that includes TWO fights with Joshua

Anthony Joshua Boxer edges closer to Deontay Wilder showdown with £66m offer

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has had his say on who out of Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury would have given him the toughest fight, in their primes of course.

The Bronze Bomber, along with managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, met with the streaming service on Tuesday in NY to discuss a possible deal, and details of the figures involved have started to leak out.

However, Wilder appears set to turn down DAZN's lucrative offer according to Mike Coppinger. The report claims they offered Wilder a three-fight deal worth a reported $100 million.

As part of this deal, two of those bouts consisting of showdowns with WBA/IBF/WBO champion Anthony Joshua for an average of $40 million. Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, confirmed.

That would leave £32.5m for each Joshua fight with the first to take place before the end of the year.

A Chelsea spokesman told i: "We do not comment on speculation about confidential contracts or player-related matters". When asked if City's squad would be strong enough to withstand a transfer ban, Guardiola responded: "Of course".

DAZN offered Wilder $20m (£15m) to fight mandatory challenger Breazeale, and $80m (£60m) for two fights against Joshua later in the year and at the start of 2020.

While a unification fight between Joshua and Wilder would undoubtedly be one of the biggest the sport has seen in recent times, a deal has been hard to make.

The Wilder vs. Breazeale formal announcement is set for March 19th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, so all the information will be revealed by then.

Previous lengthy negotiations between Wilder and Joshua fell through before the Bronze Bomber fought Tyson Fury in Los Angeles last December.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua will make his American debut on June 1st as he defends his WBA (super), WBO and IBF heavyweight belts versus Jarrell Miller in NY. Here's hoping they do.
