Deontay Wilder recently rejected a £75 million offer from broadcast company DAZN to face Anthony Joshua.

The WBC champion, who last stepped inside the ring back in December against Tyson Fury, was linked with a multi-fight offer against Joshua.

Wilder, who kept his undefeated record intact after a split decision draw against Fury, decided to reject the offer from the broadcast company.

And talking to the Los Angeles Times, cited by the Mirror, Finkel revealed that Wilder rejected the offer because he didn’t know how much Joshua would receive for the clash.

We asked how much is Joshua getting, and we were never told the answer.

What they offered sounded good, but it might not sound so good if the other guy is getting double or triple it, and we never knew what that number was.

The 33-year-old will now face off against fellow American Dominic Breazeale in New York on May 18, while Joshua will make his stateside debut against Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller on June 1.

Wilder’s next opponent has already been inside the ring with Joshua previously, with the Brit defeating Breazeale back in 2016.

And with both heavyweight champions competing in the coming months, talks following the pair’s respective fights will more than likely resume, however, Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn may well decide to explore the possibility of taking on Fury in an all-British showdown.
