    This aint even considered an A tier fight, its like a solid consolation prize fight while we wait for Fury vs the winner of AJ/Usyk, and we STILL have to deal with this much political nonsense for it to get made, if it even happens at all. Boxing eh.

    I don't know you, but I think we've got to the point where a view like this needs to be called out.

    Fighters try to get the best deal. They don't only try for a good deal "when they know they'll lose". Fury petitioned for a greater split than standard - was that because he "knew he'd lose"? No, it was because he thought he had a case.

    And what fighter ever went into a fight "knowing they would lose"?

    Opinions are fine, but some can't be defended and are just patently incorrect. It shows a complete lack of understanding of business, boxing, fighter mentality, and any kind of common sense. Sadly, you're not the only one saying it on here.

    Can we all agree to end the "he wants more because he knows he'll lose" statements? Surely everyone realises it's nonsense?

    No-one seems to be indicating they're close to a deal.

    So I guess it's the arbitration. But is that really going to be solved in the next few days?

    I wonder whether the WBC would just move on with an 80/20 purse bid and accept that they'll then get sued by Whyte?

    Getting sick of it now.
    Whyte get's ktfo by a shot old man & like Hearns other hypejob is only relevant through Rematchroom paperwork.
    Where's the sportsmanship in that?
    Denying the world undesputed again & still kicking off over money #truecolours
    They should go to the next mandatory with this being Whytes 4th duck.

    Screw the WBC!

    I just want to see the fight, but if this needs to happen to stop the WBC shit show - so be it.

    The heavyweight division has been a mess for a while, what's a couple more months if it stops the WBCs BS?

    Let's hope Dillian wins and sends a message to all the shitty organisations

    "The 34-year-old heavyweight from Brixton, England has long served as a top contender but has fallen victim to the politics of the sport."

    I also remember him falling victim to the politics of a left uppercut that put him to sleep two fights ago.

    OK Bob & Frank! What's your move? There has to be a place somewhere between 25% and 45%? What does Fury do if the WBC said "The split is 60-40?"

    Does anybody want to fight anymore? This sport is becoming a complete joke where a youtuber is doing better numbers than pro fighters who dedicate themselves to the sport. Embarassing. Shut the **** up and fight

    Arum is mad about the purse bid as another promoter could easily come in and outbid him.
    I don’t see this one actually happening. Either Whyte walks away because of money or Arum convinces Firy to drop the title.
    Cant see fury dropping title under any circumstance, whyte at best is going to negotiate himself into a 25% or 30% at the very best. More then likely they will come to a agreement between $5mil - $10mil, probz around $7mil if t.r are willing to pay that much. Ruiz got paid $6mil for Joshua, Fury vs Whyte will do very well on uk ppv due to them both being good trash talkers. The fight itself tho is a given.
