Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), 29, of England, meantime, is set to fight Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs), 30, of Brooklyn, on June 1 at Madison Square Garden in NY.

Wilder has been ordered to defend his WBC title against Dominic Breazeale after Tyson Fury opted to face another opponent before a potential rematch with the "Bronze Bomber".

"November/December", Hearn said when asked a possible date for the fight. "I'm not going to say too much on it, because I don't want to jinx anything".

DAZN, which signed unified middleweight world champion Canelo Alvarez to an athlete-record five-year, 11-fight, $365 million deal last fall; Gennady Golovkin to a three-year, six-fight, nine-figure deal last week; and also is working with Joshua on a fight-by-fight basis, has made signing Wilder a priority.

"And I think he will get Wilder, I do".

'Clearly, the relationship between Team Wilder and Team Joshua is not the best.

"They've got their work cut out, but the pieces are coming together".

Heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder, who has been vocal about his desire to make bigger money and to have bigger fights, could be on his way. 'Now I think there's a strategy in place that could lead us to the undisputed fight.

Hearn hinted that the potential bout between Joshua and Wilder could take place in November or December this year, after their fights with Miller and Brezeale respectively, if both men are victorious.

World Boxing News have reported that in effect Wilder will receive $25m for each fight which will then lead to negotiations for an improved contract for two fights with Joshua in 2020. It will be the first time the 36-year-old has fought since Alvarez inflicted the first loss of his career in September. Part of my job is to make sure he stays focused on that task.

That's not to say Wilder isn't interested in the fight against Breazeale, but would rather have it on Fox, where it is free to watch in the United States.

"It's all well and good making an undisputed fight but if you lose to Miller, it's all up in the air".
