Wilder, along with managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon and promoter Lou DiBella, met with DAZN executive chairman John Skipper and members of his staff in NY on Tuesday about a possible deal that would bring Wilder to the sports streaming service and include a potential fall fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship against three-belt titleholder Anthony Joshua, who is also fighting on DAZN.
"It all depends on the Wilder-Joshua situation", Connolly told Sky Sports.
"But if they don't fight here, I would think he's probably going to fight Wilder in December, January".
"It's the biggest fight in world boxing by a long, long way", Hearn added.
Should both champions win, there will be heavy interest to see them face each other - but the expectation that the two sides can actually reach a deal is not very high.
Hearn also apparently offered Wilder a multi-fight deal - ignored by the boxer's team - that guaranteed US$30 million for a title tilt with Joshua.
Deontay Wilder has been offered a fortune to sign for streaming network DAZN with a view to fighting Anthony Joshua this winter for the undisputed world heavyweight title.
"We'll see where it goes". He already proved through the Canelo and Golovkin signings that he's very good at doing this. (Skipper) spoke to me and said what do I think? "So (Skipper is) the one to get it done".
DAZN, who Joshua is an ambassador for, offered to broadcast Wilder's next three fights. Wilder-Breazeale has been penciled in for May 18 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Showtime PPV.
Heavyweight boxing star Deontay Wilder is holding talks regarding a potential media rights deal with over-the-top (OTT) service DAZN, according to multiple reports.
WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Joshua makes his United States debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
But part of the deal would be two fights with Joshua which would pay him around £32.5m each.
The DAZN offer to Wilder would pay him at least $20 million for the first fight, according to a source, with a Joshua fight being worth more than double that amount.
