After Joshua’s win vs. Parker, Hearn said Wilder’s team didn’t seem interested in negotiating for a fight. And there’s little doubt negotiations have been contentious in the past. Joshua, who’s estimated to earn £20 million ($28.1 million) for fighting Parker, had a 65-35% split for the total money generated by their bout.
Though Wilder said in the past he wants a 50-50% split, that was never realistic. Instead, he’s now reportedly saying he’ll accept a 60-40% split.

Promoter Eddie Hearn will hold a meeting with Deontay Wilder’s team in New York next week as negotiations continue for a fight against Anthony Joshua for all the heavyweight world titles.
Joshua is still waiting to receive a counter offer from WBC king Wilder, who did not accept a reported flat fee of $12.5m for a massive showdown with the British star, the IBF, WBA and WBO belt holder.
