Deontay Wilder makes huge call on potential mega-money bout with Anthony Joshua

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder still expects his next shot at Anthony Joshua to take place despite the fact that Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn chose not to accept the $50 million offer.

“If Joshua and his team are smart enough, they’ll take this fight and take it soon,” said Wilder.

“We’re not going to be waiting. The offer’s on the table: $50 million and he gets 50-50 split upward, so he can make even more money than that.

“That’s a lot of money to turn down and I know he’s not Dave Chappelle, so it’s going to happen.”
