‘Show Us The Money’, Joshua’s Promoter Replies Wilder

Published

Anthony Joshua promoter, Eddie Hearn has disclosed that Joshua is is unconvinced American Deontay Wilder’s team have the 50 million dollars that they are offering for a title unification bout.

America’s WBC heavyweight world champion Wilder challenged WBA Super, IBF, IBO and WBO champion, Joshua, to the fight with both boxers guaranteed a 50-50 money split.

Hearn added that his team needs to be sure the money exist.

“It’s not a case of we sign the contract and they go and raise the money.

“If you’ve got it, show it to us and then we can talk,’’ Hearn, who is in New York for a Matchroom Boxing USA card and will meet Wilder’s representatives on Friday,”

Deontey Wilder in a video on twitter confirmed  that his camp had emailed Britain’s Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn an offer of a minimum of $50 million.

Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s promoter, had earlier given Joshua until midnight on Thursday to respond to the offer.

“I spoke to AJ, he knows the situation but we want to know if it’s real,” Hearn added.

“We want to see the money and know where it is. There is a real strong chance this fight could happen – we’re not looking to be difficult.’’

“If he accepts it, it will be there. Al Haymon and I have always delivered what we’ve offered,’’ Finkel said, adding that the money exist.

Joshua last month moved a step closer to becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world after beating New Zealand’s Joseph Parker in their title unification bout to improve his record to 21-0.

The 2012 Olympic champion added Parker’s WBO belt to his own collection.
