    I wonder how much more will they have to pay Whyte to help promote this.
    Can easily imagine Fury and Frank sitting alone at pressers....

      And also, how much of that money came from Daniel K.?
      Though it's even more possible that Frank and Fury made a side deal (Frank only pays Whyte off of that 41M).

        The arbitrator can still change the split.
        The question is, who is responsible for the shortfall if the arbitrator gives Whyte more than 20%, WBC or winning promoter?

            Warren is pretty much a cheer leader to be honest . Will it make a profit ? I doubt it .. Hearn has let himself be mugged , I said it before he should have stayed at sky and be backed by their brand and reputation, he’s working 25% harder for 25% less and he’s put himself under unnecessary pressure.

              Another delusional Fury stan. Hearn already made an undisputed fight last year remember, and who pulled out of that, conveniently ‘forgetting’ he’d got another rematch clause with Wilder?

              Without Fury wasting 4 years fighting Wilder again and again (and people call out ‘rematchroom’) we’d have had undisputed long ago.

                Haha. You’ve literally just said that Fury is a true superstar and they can make their money back against anyone, but you’re not sure if the fight will be worth paying for.

                  I wonder how it works, how they get all that money. It must be that they get that guarantee from the bank, and the bank wants the money back in interest from the profits from the fight.

                  Anyway, Fury is just too skillful for Whyte. I don't see how he could lose, unless he got really sloppy and got caught a few times. Whyte's chin isn't that good, been ko'd twice.

                    Parker is Furys side piece now , Joyce and Fury are very good friends he won’t let his bromance buddy take that one even if he wanted it .

                      I imagine a large chunk is guaranteed by BT sport and ESPN, and remember only a small portion is front ended. It's the purse for the fight, so it's paid to the fighters once they've fought, by which point the fight revenues will be in.
