Deontay Wilder offered $50 million by Dazn

Deontay Wilder has reportedly been offered a $50/£38 million two-fight deal by DAZN  Рbut a fight with Anthony Joshua IS not included.

WBC champion Wilder and his team met with DAZN, who are the US broadcasters of Joshua, on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of working together.

World Boxing News report DAZN have offered Wilder, 33, who has fought on a fight-by-fight deal with Showtime recently, a two-bout deal.

Wilder has been essentially been offered $25/£19m for each of the two fights on the streaming service with the view of extending it to three.

The third will be a lucrative undisputed heavyweight showdown against WBA, IBF and WBO world champion Joshua Рlikely set for 2020.

Negotiations between the two camps had previously flopped, leaving The Bronze Bomber not willing to work with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

However, DAZN’s head of broadcast John Skipper is the middleman heading up the negotiations that could finally see Joshua and Wilder square off.

Joshua defends his trio of world titles against American Jarrell Miller on June 1 at Madison Square Garden.

While Wilder looks set to face his mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale, after a rematch with Tyson Fury was shelved.

Fury, who was unlucky not to have been given the verdict against Wilder in December, signed an £80m deal with ESPN in the US Рwho have subsequently ordered him to take an interim fight.
