Deontay Wilder: I Won’t Accept Flat Fee; Now It’s 50-50 for Joshua Fight
If Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder win their upcoming fights, Wilder won’t accept a flat fee for facing Joshua next.
Wilder revealed his new stance on negotiations for their heavyweight showdown during the latest installment of Showtime’s digital talk show, “Below The Belt.” In an interview with host Brendan Schaub taped Thursday in Los Angeles, Wilder contended it’ll now take a 50-50 split for him to accept a deal with Joshua.
“If it come about that way, it gonna be 50-50 straight across,” Wilder said. “I’m not accepting no flat fees, no none of that. We done with that, and I can smile and say we done with that, bro. I done everything [to make the fight happen].”
