Anthony Joshua offered $50 million by Wilder for heavyweight mega-fight

The undefeated British world champion has 24 hours to respond to the money-spinning deal

ESPN reported that both camps had confirmed the offer, adding that it was for one fight, with no rematch clause, and would have to be the next bout for each fighter.

Deontay Wilder tells TMZ Sports he's offered insane money to Anthony Joshua to make their mega-fight happen, and if Joshua passes, it's proof the Englishman is a COWARD.

Wilder, who has been calling out Joshua for more than a year to meet him to unify titles, made a video directed at Joshua that he posted on social media on Wednesday.

While also speaking to iFLTV: "I got an email from Deontay Wilder, basically offering a 50/50 split of the fight, which isn't of interest, but with a $50m guarantee which is of interest".

Wilder said "all the money is in the bag so I expect you will be a man of your word".

At that point, Wilder's video cut to video of an interview Joshua gave earlier this month to Sky Sports, the broadcast outlet he has a deal with in the United Kingdom, in which he said of a possible Wilder fight, "I'll take $50 million up front".

Hearn had earlier offered Wilder US$12m (NZ$17.5m) for the fight.

"With all due respect to Deontay Wilder, I don't believe he has $50m", Hearn said.

He said the company will cut $5 billion from capital spending from 2019 to 2022, reducing it from $34 billion to $29 billion. Shanks wouldn't say whether Ford would need to eliminate jobs to achieve the additional $11.5 billion in cost cuts.

Joshua, who unified the World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organization heavyweight titles by out-pointing New Zealand's Joseph Parker on Mar 31, had already been recorded saying he'd "take US$50 million up front" to fight Wilder. He accepts it, it will be there. Al Haymon and I have never not delivered what we've offered.

"I've made an offer, he can either accept it or not". Joshua [previously] asked for $50 million against 50 percent, and we gave it to them.

"We really want to do the fight in the UK".

Hearn has been targeting a stadium showdown between the two fighters at Wembley. "I got something special for you", Wilder said.

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

'(The offer) is more of a PR move than anything but an interesting development all the same.

"It's very nice of Deontay to make that offer, we need to see how secure that is, we need to see a contract, we want to know where it is and quite a lot of other things as well".
