Stephen Espinoza, the head of Showtime Sports, is very confident that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder will collide in a heavyweight unification in the future.
Showtime has a working relationship with both Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) and Wilder (49-0, 39 KOs).
At the moment the two sides are at odds over the money.
As BoxingScene.com reported on Tuesday, Joshua's promoter - Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport - sent Wilder a contract that pays him a flat fee of $12.5 million for the high stakes WBC, WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO unification.
According to Wilder's handlers, it was a "take it or leave it" offer.
And based on the amount of revenue involved in that contest, a flat fee of $12.5 million won't exactly work for Wilder.
Espinoza is willing to sit down with both camps and remedy the situation so a deal can get struck.
"We have a vested interest in both guys, and feel attached to each. If we can help mediate, we will. We have offered that. We are a key element of the negotiation," Espinoza exclusively told Sky Sports.
"If we can grease the wheels, in terms of getting the deal done attractively to everyone, then we will do our best. I have no doubt that this fight will happen. It could be the next fight, the second fight, or in the spring of 2019. I don't think we'll see a drawn-out negotiation because I see two fighters anxious to stage a worldwide mega-fight.
"Deontay will make the decisions that suit him best, as will Anthony. But we have a long history with Deontay - a close working and personal relationship. The same is true with AJ, except the history is not as long. They each know our heart is in the right place. Our interest is making this fight at the right time, under the right conditions."
