Head of promotional company Matchroom Boxing Eddie Hearn spoke about the distribution of the fee for the fight between WBC heavyweight belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and WBA, WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
“If we are talking about belts and the fight for the absolute, then it should be 50 to 50. Now let’s imagine ourselves in the place of Tyson Fury. I even know what he will say: “Usyk will not get the same as me. I am Tyson Fury. I’m a megastar and he’s not. Who will Oleksandr Usyk fight without me? And this is a really important point. Who will Oleksandr Usyk fight without Tyson Fury?
I know how much Usyk paid for the second fight with Joshua. It was a huge amount compared to the first fight. If Alexander does not fight Fury, then he will have to make a voluntary defense, and this is about a tenth of what he can earn in a fight with Tyson, ”said Hearn.
Earlier, one of Fury’s promoters said that the fate of the fight will be decided in the near future.
