    Well, with all these delays in the purse bid, I think he's getting more than 25%!

    Fury won’t fight Whyte he still has memories of getting knocked out by Whyte in sparring. Shame as would be a great fight.

    Not Whyte hater just reality check. In any other HW era Whyte is at best a gatekeeper.

    That’s because one (Whyte) a non-champion who would be a gatekeeper at any other time in HW history thinks he’s entitled to more than 20%.

    Twenty% is too low, but 45% may be too high. Thirty to thirty-five% sounds more like it. Make this fight happen already!

    Fight won't get made. Whyte never really wanted this fight. Don't forget Eddie couldnt get him to sign an in house deal vs aj for 3 world titles.

    Both Arum, Warren and Hearn have said it in UK interviews. At least a dozen UK papers have written about it.

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

    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.

    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.
