  • Deontay Wilder ‘in talks’ with DAZN

Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn has revealed that the signs of a unification bout between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua later this year are positive, as reported on Talksport.

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

I think that he will put the deal together for Wilder to fight Joshua".

After drawing with Tyson Fury in December, it initially looked inevitable that Wilder would put his WBC title back on the line and challenge the "Gypsy King" in a rematch.

Digital media outlet Boxingscene claims that Wilder will be offered a two-fight deal worth US$50 million in total and that he is also considering an offer to fight on ESPN.

Wilder spoke with Tha Boxing Voice and said a fight against Breazeale is not exactly a pay-per-view worthy fight because Breazeale does not "fit that bill" of a pay-per-view headliner, according to the long-time WBC heavyweight champion. "There's a clear desire from both sides to make the fight (happen)".

Une décision prise moins d'un an après qu'un autre de ses enfants, Yannick Bolloré, a pris la direction du conseil de surveillance de Vivendi .

"We'll see where it goes". It is a six fight deal said to be in the 8-figure range. Wilder turned down an offer from Top Rank last month to fight this spring or early summer for $12.5 million followed by a rematch of his December 1 draw with lineal champion Tyson Fury, who recently signed with Top Rank, for at least $20 million this fall.

But it seems with the 33-year-old that contract talks at agreeing fights aren't his speciality as another setback in that deal scuppered a second meeting with Fury.

And should he get past "Big Baby", Hearn can foresee Joshua vs Wilder taking place a few months later. He will fight an alternative opponent in May or June.

Wilder notified his advisers Al Haymon, founder of Premier Boxing Champions, who have promoted Wilder's fights on Showtime, and Shelly Finkel of the opportunity.

Golovkin's bouts will be available in all DAZN markets, in addition to his native Kazakhstan. "We're confident he will bring his passionate fans to the platform as we produce tentpole events with his team over the next several years".
