The 33-year-old "Bronze Bomber" is reportedly scheduled to fight Dominic Breazeale in a Showtime pay-per-view on 18th May in NY after Wilder saw his rematch with Tyson Fury fall apart when the Englishman signed a multi-fight deal with Top Rank to compete on ESPN and the ESPN+ OTT service. I would definitely much rather fight Breazeale on Fox.

Wilder earned around £12.5m for his dramatic draw against Tyson Fury.

"I don't have anything to announce, so no comment, other than we're interested in having the best fights on DAZN and we will put the fights on that people want to see".

According to reports, Skipper will lay out a multi-fight offer to Wilder that would pay him at least US$20 million per fight on DAZN, with the second bout of the deal seeing Wilder face Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight championship.

So, Wilder would be set up to earn $25 million apiece for two fights before fighting Joshua, providing he comes out victorious in both match-ups.

However, Kownacki's promoter Keith Connolly tells Sky Sports: 'We have spoken with Wilder's promoter Al Haymon and the thinking is that Adam has one more fight to be ready for a world title fight in December.

While Wilder has fought the majority of his career on Showtime, following Tyson Fury signing a deal with ESPN and Top Rank, which derailed a rematch of their 2018 encounter, Wilder made it known he was a "free agent". 'But I think there's an opportunity there for someone to be a mediator to get the fight done.
