Matchroom claim they have offered improved terms to Deontay Wilder to set up a blockbuster fight with Anthony Joshua.
The WBC world heavyweight champion is preparing to defend his crown against fellow British fighter Tyson Fury in Los Angeles in December.
But most in the boxing world are curious as to whether he will step into the ring for a highly anticipated clash against fellow heavyweight champion Joshua, which has been brewing for months.
And the 28-year-old’s promoters have pulled together a new lucrative package in an attempt to tempt Wilder into agreeing to a unification bout for April next year.
Barry Hearn, head of Matchroom, revealed that he had made the offer in a surprise tweet.
Hearn tweeted on Wednesday afternoon: ‘So now a new improved offer has been made to Wilder’s camp, let’s see if they will finally agree to a meeting to discuss or not.
It is expected that the terms offered are dependent on Wilder overcoming Fury when they meet on December 1.
Joshua has already booked Wembley to defend his world titles and has already admitted he has Wilder on his radar.
