Eddie Hearn, promoter for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, has revealed that a "huge site offer" has been presented from Saudi Arabia to stage a unification between Joshua and the winner of the upcoming fight between WBC champion Deontay Wilder and challenger Tyson Fury.
Wilder will face Fury in a rematch on February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Joshua fought in Saudi Arabia last month, when he outboxed Andy Ruiz over twelve rounds to recapture the world titles.
Joshua will next make a defense against IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.
But the overall goal for Joshua and Hearn is to secure the winner of Wilder-Fury in 2020.
"We have to try and make that happen," Hearn told Sky Sports. "Right now, the fight that Anthony Joshua wants is the winner of Wilder and Fury.
"We've been there before. Both guys have turned down 60-40 for that fight and now we have no other option, but to offer them 50-50, because the fight will never happen, subject to the boss giving the thumbs up, which I think he knows that's the way to make this fight. We have a huge site offer in place for that fight to take place."
And Saudi Arabia is a huge option to host that type of fight. They have the bank account to outbid other potential players who want to host that level of event.
"A big option. We have a partnership out there in Saudi Arabia. They put the money up for the Andy Ruiz fight. Everything they promised, they delivered. They want this fight bad and when they've got that kind of attitude and mentality, it's going to be difficult to beat," Hearn said.
