Wilder now holds the heavyweight WBC title and is looking for an opponent after Tyson Fury turned down the opportunity of having a rematch with the American.

Digital media outlet Boxingscene claims that Wilder will be offered a two-fight deal worth US$50 million in total and that he is also considering an offer to fight on ESPN.

Wilder is set to make announcements about his future next Tuesday, following the sudden collapse of his projected rematch with Tyson Fury. There's a long way to go but we'll see where it goes.

But Wilder, Haymon and Finkel have a poor relationship with Hearn and to get a deal with Wilder done, Hearn said it would be up to Skipper to negotiate a deal as he had done with Golovkin and Alvarez.

Although there had been reports of Deontay Wilder's next fight against Dominic Breazeale being a potential pay-per-view fight, Wilder is not exactly 100 percent on board with the idea of it being a pay-per-view event. 'But I think there's an opportunity there for someone to be a mediator to get the fight done.

DiBella recently arranged for Wilder and Skipper to speak over the phone about a week ago as a way for them to meet each other and get the ball rolling, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

But it seems with the 33-year-old that contract talks at agreeing fights aren't his speciality as another setback in that deal scuppered a second meeting with Fury.

DAZN, who Joshua is an ambassador for, offered to broadcast Wilder's next three fights.

WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Joshua makes his U.S. debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The double fight deal would lead into an undisputed heavyweight unification bout with Joshua over two fights in 2020.

There are, of course, many details to iron out, including the prospect of a two-fight deal where each fighter has the right to an immediate rematch and the location of the fight. It's pretty clear that one fight people want to see is Anthony Joshua fight Deontay Wilder.

"It's all well and good making an undisputed fight but if you lose to Miller, it's all up in the air".
