American WBC champion Deontay Wilder is reportedly expected to reject a $100 million-plus offer from broadcast company DAZN to take on Anthony Joshua, talkSPORT report.
The report suggests that the offer made would see Wilder face mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale next, before facing the Brit on two occasions.
The 33-year-old was reportedly offered $20 million to fight Breazeale on DAZN before taking on Joshua twice for $40 million per fight.
However, Wilder, who nearly lost for the first time in his professional career to Tyson Fury back in December, is set to reject the offer in order to head in a different direction.
Journalist Chris Mannix has suggested that the American will reveal his future plans on Tuesday, where he is set to announce when he will face off against Breazeale.
