Are boxing fans any closer to a super fight between heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua? WBC champ Wilder believes he’s met their offer so they should be “men of their word.”
Wilder took to Instagram on Wednesday to imply he’s sent Anthony Joshua a $50 million upfront in an effort to make a unified heavyweight title bout happen. In the video, Wilder speaks directly to the camera advising Joshua and Eddie Hearn to check their email and states, “the money is all there” and that he wanted to send it “personally.”
Unclear to what money he’s referring to? He then cuts to a clip of Joshua stating he would accept $5o million dollars up front.
UPDATE: Anthony Joshua responded from his IG
