But the Bronze Bomber has come back and told the promoter he is not interested.

Wilder said in response to the $20m offer: “Nah I’m good you can kumbaya it, go help those in need.

He also took a swipe a Hearn's new online platform DAZN, which he called "trash" and claimed "no top US fighter" would sign up for the streaming service.

The 32-year-old said: "You got that new boxing app deznuts right! Man use it on that!

"You’ll need it to pay back all the money they loaned you, no top US fighter is signing, that s***'s trash.

"Besides why would anyone sign with you? You purposely avoided."

He finished by reiterating his initial offer to Hearn for the Joshua fight.

Calling the promoter a "disease to the sport", he said: “$50M up front with 50 per cent split deal for your biggest client."
