DEONTAY WILDER has reiterated his claim that he will not sign up for a world heavyweight title unification bout with Anthony Joshua unless he gets half of the proceeds.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is targeting a clash with the WBC champion next year but has previously said “over my dead body” when asked if Wilder will get a straight split.

The 32-year-old Wilder, who has won all 39 of his professional fights, is convinced Hearn is trying to talk his way out of a showdown.
