More From The Story We Brought You Earlier On In The Week. This Is Doing Rounds In The Media At That Moment WORLD WIDE! UFC is set to offer Anthony Joshua a $500 million (£353 million) fight contract just one week after the fighter expressed an interest in taking on two of the UFC's biggest stars.
Joshua is one of the hottest commodities in sports. He is an Olympic gold medalist, a world heavyweight boxing champion, and regularly sells out the biggest stadiums Britain has to offer. Over Easter weekend, for example, he'll fight in front of 80,000 screaming fans at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. Davies says White once said Joshua "changed the face of boxing" and that "multiple sources" have confirmed to him that UFC wants to "lure him away from Hearn and Matchroom."The news comes hot on the heels of Joshua expressing an interest in taking on two of the UFC's biggest stars.
Just last week the boxer said fights against UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou and former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones would be "good scraps." Joshua said he'd have to "have a couple of warm-up fights" first as he would need to "learn the submissions," but would have no problem transitioning into a UFC fighter. "A fight is a fight," Joshua told Sky Sports. "Yea man, I'd do it." #anthonyjoshua #HBO #showtime #eddiehearn #UFC #danawhite
