Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is reportedly ready to step down for a unification fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua if he is offered a sum of $10 million.

The 34-year-old is expected to take on the Gypsy King for their trilogy next month after triggering the clause in their contract but the outbreak of coronavirus has definitely affected such plan.

However, the 'Bronze Bomber' who was handed his first defeat in his division in February is willing to allow the two Britons to face each other but insisted it has to happen with a prize.

The American was demolished in round seven of his encounter with Fury as his camp needed to throw in the towel to avoid a catastrophe at the MGM Grand Arena few months back.

Joshua has a mandatory fight with challenger Kubrat Pulev but that should be easy to push aside for the much-awaited unification fight to happen.

According to EssentiallySports.com, Wilder wants to face the eventual winner of the two fighters but this has been greeted with backlash owing to his deal with Fury.

The publication is also expecting Pulev to raise similar demands if he must shelve his fight with the Briton of Nigerian descent.

The 39-year-old Bulgarian fighter stayed back for Joshua's re-match against Andy Ruiz which took place in Saudi Arabia last December.

At the moment, both Joshua and Fury are in possession of all the belts in their category, and a potential bout between them will be massive.

And considering the technicalities of the two fighters, it will make for an intense bout. However, with Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev, pricking this potential match-up, we can only hope this bout happens sooner rather than later.

YEN earlier reported that Tyson Fury's boxing team is now planning to convince American boxer, Deontay Wilder, to step down in his third term bid to fight the British world champion.

The Gypsy King recently claim the WBC title after demolishing the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round of their bout in February.

It was even a member of his coaching crew who had to throw in the towel for the referee to end the match thereby declaring Tyson Fury the winner.
