        Realistically Wilders last fight bombed. Sold under 10k in tickets and low PPV sales. Fury did even worse against Wallin. Joshua broke records. The cash cow here is Joshua. What he is willing to offer either Fury or Wilder is way more than they have ever earnt before plus fight for all the belts.

        A sides have always been the A sides, but all of a sudden the A side is somebody you dont like so you are choosing to ignore how this sport has worked for many many years and trying to throw a different angle at it so you have a shred of meat to your argument.

        You say people want to come and see the best. They aint turning up for Fury and Wilder like they are for Joshua. Its not even close. Are you just going to ignore all of these facts, stats and figures? Same stats facts and figures that have worked so well for a Floyd or a Canelo or a Tyson or all these other A sides over the years?
        Just because something generates money doesnt make it right. Look at the history of boxing .There were times when people only came to see the best and for me thats how it should be.

        Its not that I dont like Joshua but I admire boxing ability and feel Fury is above him.

        You talk about Floyd but I feel Floyd was one of the best boxers and deserves the money.He wasnt always the A side though eg against Oscar de La Hoya and rightly admitted that he wasnt as well and was prepared to be the B side.

        Yes but the best players usually always end up at the likes of Real Madrid.Hence the club that can offer the most money and prestige.

The main reason that Ronaldo and Messi get paid more is because they are far more marketable and sell way more football jerseys, football boots etc...... the premier league gets way more money than La Liga for broadcasting rights because more people watch it, not because it’s proven to be better in terms of quality.

        Joshua has lost to Ruiz but that has not significantly affected his marketability, more people still watch him and he’s the reason why Saudi and other foreign sites are putting up stupid money for the undisputed fight.
        Yes but the big clubs always want the best players.Its why Real Madrid bought the best player at the time in the 1950s Alfredo Di Stefano. This transformed their image and helped give them the prestige which last to this day eg the best club in the word.

        I think though the Saudis know Joshua is marketable but even more so if he fights the best ala the winner of Fury/Wilder.Hence why if Ive read correctly they are trying to pump much more in this potential fight than the Joshua/Ruiz rematch.

          Yeah casual fans are like that! Pass on REAL fights to watch FAKE NEWS!!!!

            If the wilder vs Fury winner wins in impressive fashion, Joshua will need them more than they'd need him. Just because he has an idiot fanbase and some belts doesn't enhance where he stands in the hw division. He's still the guy who was beaten into submission by a Mexican butterbean.

                It’s going to be hilarious when Wilder loses In February, you will then see the difference between a huge commodity like when AJ loses grows more interest and Wilder who will go completely under . All this 50/50 talk goes down the toilet .

                  Yeah, what was that about? I know exactly why he was the B side, It was cuz DLH was the cash cow, the A side. The one who sold the tickets, the one who sold the PPV's. Floyd knew, take the B side money, beat the man and become a super star.

                  So Floyd accepted being the B side cuz he was the B side for all the same reasons Wilder is the B side. But Wilder wont accept that, he wants his pot of gold before crossing the rainbow.

                  There is a reason why Floyd is a super star, Canelo is a super star and Joshua is a Superstar and nobody really cares about Wilder. Go on Boxrec, Look at how early in their careers they started facing known names, look how young they were when they started to make their moves.

                  Then look at Wilders. TO THIS DAYUYYUUYYY he has only faced one great opponent and he lost that fight but was gifted a draw, That was after 40 fights while nearing his mid 30's. Wilder wants 50%? He may well get it but that resume is what cost him not being a super star now, Not Joshua, Joshua did the work while Wilder fought bums and now here is Wilder with hand out demanding parity. He should of put the work in.

                  I expect Wilder to be offered 50% regardless, even though i think he wont take it. But there is no way Wilder is deserving of that money and nothing in his career so far can be shown as proof that he does.

                      For those who are disputing the claims, simply go and watch the IFL videos with Eddie and AJ that have been posted over the past 2 days. Pointless talking about AJ splits until after Fury-Wilder 2 as there's so much that can happen before then.

                      Having said that, AJ's reaction to being told by Kugan that Eddie thinks it's a 50/50 was priceless.
