According to Frank the Wank, Thaxton wanted 300,000 for the fight with Khan. This would be a career high purse for him and would also be the record highest for a British title outside the Heavyweight division.

If that is right, that is too much for Thaxton.

I think the point is that khan is earning more even tho hes pretty new in relative terms to the sport.

"Jonathan has probably never seen 300,000 in his whole career and hasn't even got 100,000 for his last ten fights combined"

Frank Warren

Thaxton priced himself out, Khan earns above 500,000 overall per fight, he has a guaranteed earning + sponsors. ITV pay Khan as well.

So your telling me, with all the exposure that Khan has, and the media hype wagon behind him, they couldnt afford to pay Thaxton ***163;300000? That fight would be huge domestically, probably generating almost as much revenue as Enzo vs Haye, and they will both be earning at least that ammount.

Its not unreasonable for him to ask that much, after all its his title that Khan wants, and for Frank not to pay it is criminal. Khan may not be ducking Thaxton himself, but Frank the Wank certainly doesnt want his pension getting in there with him else he would be able to pay that ammount.

Your a ****ing idiot if you believe Thaxton deserves ***163;300,000 / $650,000

He probably has'nt earned that in his whole career, 8 Million people in UK watch Khan fights, Thaxton? Not even 8000 probably. Matt Skelton is'nt even getting that much fighting Ruslan Chagaev for the Heavyweight title.

That's stupid, Thaxton is nobody he is a domestic name Pavlik was left with ***163;300,000 after the Taylor fight and paying his trainers thats just over $600,000 and I'm guessing Thaxtons Trainer etc doesn't cost as much as Pavliks. That just Idiotic, I'd say ***163;100,000 is about right.

depends on how much Wank Warren can make selling the fight, if he puts it on in bolton then yes the money is about right or if he can make it a joint main event with some other big fight Thaxton should get it, but Wank Warren has a way of telling a story thats just not quite the full picture.

i never trust anything frank warren says, e.g the haye fight wouldnt a she couldnt get options but it happened. Thaxton offered amir 300k that was fact, thaxton was going to get around 100k. Amir does not get 500k a fight he gets around 200k tops and will get up to 300k for his fight with the danish lad.

With the Sponsors, Endorsements, etc. he does. ITV has a contract with him, and they pay him a huge amount of money for his fights along with his guaranteed payday's.

My view, is that if Thaxton was offered a career high purse, there is no reason why he necessarily has to accept it. If it goes to purse bids, then Thaxton and Khan get the market value of the fight, whatever that is. Why wouldn't Thaxton have every right to insist on that, if he thinks it is in his best interests?

Fact is, is that it's Khan that has pulled out of the fight. Perhaps some people think that is all good, because Khan has better people to fight or whatever. Fine. But it's Khan that has pulled out.
