Had Wilder accepted the deal, he would have stabbed his network partners in the back, fought Breazeale on DAZN with nobody watching, the major networks would have refused to show highlights, and still not have gotten to fight Joshua since Joshua lost his interim fight.

Wilder's decision, to fight Breazeale on Showtime for slightly less, and continue to negotiate the Joshua fight, was the correct decision. Joshua ended up losing, the Breazeale knockout went viral, and Wilder ended up in a way better spot than he would have been in had he taken the DAZN deal.

Wilder never turned down $100 million to fight Joshua. He turned down $20 million to fight Breazeale. You guys just can't stop trolling.
This is close to my understanding of things aswell. OF COURSE Wilder wasn't about to up and leave his contract to jump on board with Hearn, with less than full-clad guarantees that the Joshua fight would occur. In the end, it looks like Wilder made the right moves, since Wilder and Fury were being ranked #1 and #2 by many for a while, and even now AJ looks like a bit of a spare part. The biggest action in the HW division for many years last weekend... and AJ is nowhere to be heard or seen
