Besides the fact that everyone knows there is no love lost between Amir and Hearn, I don't see either of their massive egos bowing down to the others. Even if the purse split was somehow miraculously agreed to... it would be - whose name will go first on promotions, who can wear the brightest trunks, who gets to go to the bathroom first etc. etc. I don't think anyone should hold their breath for this fight any time in the near future - especially if they both WIN their next fights.
If it's on PPV over here in the UK (which I'm almost certain it will be) then each fighter will stand to make prob 5M+. That's a lot of money and I'm sure it will do huge ratings with the rivalry building up over time and I'm sure thebuild up would be huge sky sports would make sure of that.
IMO if both fighters win there next 2 fights then it will get made.
