The 33-year-old "Bronze Bomber" is reportedly scheduled to fight Dominic Breazeale in a Showtime pay-per-view on 18th May in NY after Wilder saw his rematch with Tyson Fury fall apart when the Englishman signed a multi-fight deal with Top Rank to compete on ESPN and the ESPN+ OTT service.
"Now I think there's a strategy in place that could lead us to this fight".
"We want to put the fights on that people want to see".
But Wilder, Haymon and Finkel have a poor relationship with Hearn and to get a deal with Wilder done, Hearn said it would be up to Skipper to negotiate a deal as he had done with Golovkin and Alvarez.
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.
Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a draw this past December, leaving the champion with a record of 40-0-1. "It's pretty clear that one fight people want to see is Joshua and Wilder".
And that fight is a huge step closer after streaming giant DAZN offered Wilder a three-fight deal worth around £80m on Wednesday.
Per Mike Coppinger of The Ring, Wilder and DAZN Executive Chairman John Skipper will get together this week in a meeting put together by promoter Lou DiBella.
As things stand Wilder is expected to fight Dominic Breazeale, whether this will be shown on DAZN, Showtime or FOX Sports, no one knows.
Wilder is now being planned for a May 18 return to the ring, potentially at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The deal means Golovkin's fights will no longer appear on pay-per-view, with his bouts now available to all DAZN subscribers at no extra cost.
Joshua, meanwhile, fights Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden in June, though promoter Hearn is increasingly hopeful that the two will come face-to-face in November or December of 2019.
"It's all well and good making an undisputed fight but if you lose to Miller, it's all up in the air". If Wilder and Joshua both win their interim fights and Wilder signs with DAZN, they would likely meet for the undisputed title in the fall.
