Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn labelled the offer'more of a PR move than anything

"All the money is in the bag so I expect you will be a man of your word", Wilder said in a video he posted on his Twitter handle in response to Joshua claiming he would accept a bout with the American for 50 million dollars.

"But if there's substantial money to do it elsewhere we will definitely look at it".

"At the moment I edge towards Joshua, he's fought the better opposition and had the better results", said Haye.

"I just sent them what they wanted".

'(The offer) is more of a PR move than anything but an interesting development all the same. If the fight generated more than $100 million, which Finkel believes it could, Joshua would make even more, and if it lost money, the Wilder side would be on the hook to pay Joshua. I assure you that we're serious and we would be glad to sit down with you and provide proper security for the funding and work out all the details.

Upon receiving the deal, Hearn revealed his scepticism of how realistic their intentions were, only for Finkel to speak directly to Sky Sports Head of Boxing Adam Smith on the matter to confirm it was.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? It has got to be the United Kingdom for this fight, or possibly Vegas.

"I spoke to AJ and he knows the situation", said the Matchroom Boxing boss.

With all due respect you know Al and I for a long time and you know this is not a publicity stunt.

"There's a real strong chance this fight could happen - we're not looking to be hard".

"Last night we got an email from Deontay Wilder personally offering us $50m and we have to give him a yes or no today", explained Hearn.

Hearn said earlier this month that the WBA has ordered the Briton to enter into negotiations with mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

"If you've got it, show it to us and then we can talk, " Hearn, who is in NY for a Matchroom Boxing USA card and will meet Wilder's representatives on Friday, " said".

He said: "The offer was received from a personal email account from Deontay Wilder".

Unbeaten Fury has not fought since winning the WBA Super, WBO, IBO and Ring Magazine title when he shocked the world in November 2015 by dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Germany.
