Eddie Hearn's latest offer to Deontay Wilder to organise Anthony Joshua fight

Eddie Hearn has revealed his latest offer to Deontay Wilder for the proposed Anthony Joshua fight.

It's a fight that simply has to happen in 2019, and although April 13 at Wembley Stadium looks a little short-noticed, with the latest offer now on the table, it's a fight that could happen later on in the year.

Should Wilder accept, then the boxing fans have got what they wanted and will see the two biggest stars in heavyweight boxing go head to head.

The contract is slightly biased, which could once again frustrate the American's team, with Joshua taking a bigger cut in the fight, but Wilder arguably will not have a bigger pay day in his career, even at a disadvantaged split.

If he agrees, this fight will surely be the most pay-per-viewed fight in boxing, or in fact, fighting history.

Wilder, who maybe should have lost against the ‘lineal’ champion Tyson Fury in December, and may have lost the chance to fight Joshua, should probably just accept the fight now, rather than risk losing it altogether.

However, the contract remains in place for Wilder to accept and a chance to unify the heavyweight division and take the biggest cut of his career for the most highly anticipated fight in boxing history.

The latest offer from Joshua's team was revealed by talkSPORT's Michael Benson on Twitter, and his tweet can be seen below.

Fans will argue if Wilder does not accept, then he doesn’t have the desire to unify the belts, but if he did turn it down, he is missing the chance to make a lot of money for himself.

If Wilder was to beat Joshua in the first fight, then surely he will want a bigger cut than his opponent which could see Wilder declining the offer.

In addition, the WBC did order Wilder to hold rematch talks with Fury, which potentially dismisses Hearn’s deal, but it is clear what the boxing fans want and the fighters know that everything is for the fans, so give the people what they want to see.

And that is Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder.
