We’ll just have to agree to disagree. You clearly know absolutely nothing about the value of this fight. Joshua isn’t going to fight for $10 million, let alone the $6.5 million he’d get from a $10 million bid. You’re also purposely playing dumb as obviously it wouldn’t literally be ESPN & PBC bidding, it’d be Top Rank and Ten Goose.

DAZN has matching rights on Joshua’s next fights, an obligation he can’t honor if he loses a purse bid. If Top Rank wins the bid, they’ll sell the UK rights to the highest bidder and there’s no guarantee it’d be Sky. Joshua absolutely can’t meet all of his contractual commitments and honor a purse bid.

With a voluntary agreement with Pulev, Joshua can sneak in a rematch clause. He can’t do that on a purse bid. They absolutely will vacate rather than go through with a lost purse bid.

Whether you think the fight is big or not, Joshua vs ANYBODY would go for 30-40 million in a purse bid. DAZN, ESPN, PBC, Sky, BT, etc have various wars going on and there are a lot of parties that would love to have the rights to a Joshua fight, even for a one off.

You say the fight is only worth $10 million. I can guarantee you the offer to Pulev will be at least 7-8 million, and very well could climb to 10 or higher. Then you still have Joshua’s usual purse on top of it, rumored to be 25-35 million, if not more. This is just a waste of time. You have no idea what you’re talking about and you’re so convinced you know everything. Best of luck to you.
