Hearn To Team Wilder: Is a Contract & Meeting Too Much To Ask?

Eddie Hearn, promoter of IBF, WBO, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs), is making it clear that he wants nothing more than a contract and a meeting to finalize a deal with WBC champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

The internet has been on fire since Thursday, when the Wilder camp sent Hearn an offer of a $50 million guarantee for a unification with Joshua.

Initially, Hearn sent Wilder an offer with a guaranteed $12.5 million to make the highly anticipated unification.


Hearn explains that while Wilder and his handlers have sent over a very high offer, they have refused to send over a contract and they have canceled two scheduled meetings to discuss the terms of the $50 million deal.

"I want contracts, I want a meeting. Is that a lot to ask in a $50 million offer? What do you expect me to do, just say 'we'll take that and just give me a piece of paper to sign.' They are bluffing and we smoked them out. It's been sweet doing it. And why is Dominic Breazeale coming out and saying that he's been told that he's fighting Deontay Wilder... because he has been," Hearn told's Declan Taylor.

"At first I wasn't sure if they were serious. And how can you take these people seriously, when all they want to do is talk on social media. Deals are not made on Instagram, deals are made in a boardroom. How can you make a deal on Instagram? Weird, weird. I don't want to talk about the contracts and negotiations, they have. Negotiations are ongoing. I'm talking to Al Haymon, I've had two conversations with Showtime. I think the fight will get made, but don't listen to the bullsh*t, don't listen to the bluff.

"I think Showtime wants it in November, based on talking with them. We want it in the UK. Our offer is based on a UK fight. If you want the money, you can have it wired in your account today. But their offer is based on finding where they can get the most money. Fine, just let us know where. They obviously know that we can't just accept an offer without any paperwork. When it started off, it was quite clever, but I think people can now see that it's bullsh*t".

[QUOTE=KnickTillDeaTh;18717534]When I referred to May-Pac, I wasn't referring to the money, I was pointing to the fact that it didn't look like the fight would happen until May and Pac had that meeting in the hotel room. Leading up to…

It's a simple question. When you offered Wilder 12 million dollars to fight AJ, food you have a contract already written up? This lying hypocrite disgusts me

[QUOTE=Ake-Dawg;18716855]That's not the way I remember MayPac getting done. And more specifically, Arum got the money, took his cut, paid Manny, and Manny was left to pay his folks (Freddy especially). Remember Mayweather was bragging that since he was his…

[QUOTE=sotgoda;18715252]I wanted to clarify that. Most of AJ's fans are uneducated, delusional folks in my opinion. So, whatever Eddie says is the gospel to them. How can Eddie be complaining about not getting a contract when he did not send…
