    Both parties requested it this time - I think that's the first time the WBC have said that. So at least something is happening.

    Whyte does have some leverage here. If Fury's team won't negotiate on split then they risk arbitration setting a number they don't like and Fury being kept out of the ring longer than they want. As well as potentially losing control of the promotion. They are three outcomes Team Fury doesn't want.

    Whyte runs the risk that arbitration doesn't end up swaying the split further towards him.

    If there's a deal to be done then it's in both parties' interest to find it rather than end up with an outcome they don't like.

      Usually the point of a deadline is to force a deal.
      Loses it’s teeth when both parties know they can just ask for more time and get it.

          I see Whyte getting a bigger split and or having to be offered a ton of money by someone other then team Fury to step aside . This would be an attempt to get a Usyk fight or an easier opponent ? Not sure if that makes sense though because A.J wants the titles back . So that would depend on him to .

            Of course he is. Whyte has never truly wanted to fight the top guys for a belt. His ultimate wish is to win a title via politics or some easy vacant fight.

            It’s Whyte’s actions that keep pushing this purse bid back , it could’ve been a done deal already.

            He turned down to career high pay day in 2019 to fight Joshua for three belts.

            Turned down final eliminators with Ortiz and Pulev

            And now he seems to be delaying this fight and probably hoping to get a step aside fee

            It’s becoming a very obvious pattern

              Yawn, Whyte is trying to cash out and I get it but wake me when they're signed.

              For a guy that's so avoided, he sure does make it hard during negotiations.

                Boxing struggles to even make mandatory fights, never mind complicated scenarios involving multiple fighters being given step asides and contractual guarantees for future fights that cut across multiple boxing organisations.

                It's this fight or a relative nobody for Fury.

                  This overrated idiot wasn’t even worth the 20% he was offered, let alone the 45% he is holding out for…


                  The previous delay came as the result of the WBC attempting to resolve an appeal filed by Whyte, who has objected to the 80/20 purse split applied to the fight in the event it a purse bid hearing settles promotional rights.

                  The WBC determined the split based on a request filed by Top Rank during the sanctioning body’s 59th annual convention last November in Mexico City. The matter was tabled at the time, due to Whyte’s ongoing lawsuit with the Mexico City-based sanctioning body which also caused a delay in the official ordering of the heavyweight championship fight.

                  Whyte and his team seek closer to a 55/45 split, though current WBC by-laws do not designate a set distribution nor is he granted any additional benefits despite his status as an interim titlist.

                    Matchroom may be happy to make a deal if the rumours of BT Sport going to DAZN are true. Just buy time and they have the fight.

                      True, which is why the WBC and team Fury have kicked any requests for further negotiation into touch. Wait...
