Anthony Joshua: Deontay Wilder Reveals Financial Demands As Decision Expected Friday

Written by admin

DEONTAY WILDER has revealed his financial demands to face Anthony Joshua later this year.

Joshua beat Joseph Parker on Saturday to add the WBO title to his WBA (Super) and IBF belts.

Now the Brit is targeting an epic unification bout with Wilder – who has laid bare his demands through promoter Shelly Finkel.

The American is apparently willing to take a 40 per cent cut of the revenue in order to make the fight happen.

Eddie Hearn held a meeting with Joshua on Thursday and they are reportedly scheduled to put the offer to Wilder’s camp on Friday.

“We’re ready and waiting,” Finkel told Sky Sports.

“He’s [Eddie Hearn] coming back to us with an offer and we’re waiting for it today.

“The fact is – we want the fight.

“Deontay has sent out a personal letter to the public and to Joshua: ‘I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to fight you at a 60-40.

“I’m ready to fight you in the UK. My team, you asked to meet with yours – they’re ready.

“Just let us know when and there is nothing on our side as an impediment.’

“He ended it with: ‘I can’t wait to meet you in the ring,’ that’s what we want. It’s the only thing we’re pursuing. That’s the only thing to do.”

Joshua took a 67 per cent cut when he faced Parker at the weekend, while his trilling fight with Wladimir Klitschko was halved equally.
