Boxer Deontay Wilder wants to fight Anthony Joshua next. The WBC heavyweight champion said before being the honorary pace car driver for the NASCAR race at Talladega Speedway that the dream fight will happen.

He said that there is a $50 million offer from his team for the fight. In addition, there would be a split of all proceeds after that.

“If Joshua and his team are smart enough, they’ll take this fight and take it soon,” Wilder said.

The dream fight would unify the four heavyweight belts. Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn wants his clients Jarrell Miller and Joshua to fight before Joshua fights Wilder.

Wilder, also known as “The Bronze Bomber,” is 40-0 in his career. He has 39 knockouts. The 32-year-old’s lone decision win came against Bermane Stiverne at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 2015.

The 28-year-old Joshua is 21-0 in his career. He has 20 knockouts. His lone decision win came in his last fight in March as he defeated Joseph Parker by unanimous decision.

Wilder and his team would hope to get the fight in Las Vegas or Brooklyn. However, none of Joshua’s fights have come outside of the United Kingdom.

In his last fight, he defeated Parker for the International Boxing Federation World Heavyweight Championship, International Boxing Organization World Heavyweight Championship, World Boxing Association Super World Heavyweight Championship, and the World Boxing Organisation World Heavyweight Championship.
