Wilder To Reject $100 Million DAZN Offer

–Update–

Per DAZN analyst and Sports Illustrated columnist, Chris Mannix, Wilder is expected to reject DAZN’s offer of $100 million dollars, and announce his network decision at Tuesday’s press conference at Barclays Center

On Wednesday, it was reported that Deontay Wilder was offered $50 million by DAZN to join their platform on a two fight deal. Now, less than a day later, that offer has doubled.

Per Mike Coppinger of The Ring, Wilder was offered a $100 million deal for three fights by DAZN rep John Skipper.

For Wilder, this would not only mean major money for a May 18th clash with Dominic Breazeale, but a long awaited showdown with fellow unified champion Anthony Joshua.

While both Wilder and Joshua have fights coming up in the next three months, if Wilder stops Breazeale and Joshua defeats Jarrell Miller, a fight that has been two years in the making, may come to pass this fall.

Per the Metro, Wilder would make $20 million to fight Breazeale this Spring, with a clash with Joshua in November or December set at $40 million for the first fight and another $40 for a rematch.

Wilder has until Tuesday to make his choice, as his team scheduled a press conference for March 19th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn to make his fight with Dominic Breazeale official.
