Fury Turned Down 60-40 Split In Favor Of The Winner-Says Usyk’s Promoter Alex Krassyuk

According to Alex Krassyuk, the promoter of Oleksandr Usyk, Tyson Fury has declined their recent proposal of a 60/40 split in favor of the winner. 

Negotiations are underway for a heavyweight championship boxing match to unify the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO world titles. The event was planned to take place on April 29th, 2023, at Wembley Stadium, but an agreement has yet to be reached. 

Negotiations for a fight deal were further complicated, as the original plan to hold the fight in Saudi Arabia had fallen through. 

The time to finalize the deal is limited, and negotiations could soon end, as Frank Warren has previously stated. However, Krassyuk has now had his say on the matter.

In his comments to talkSPORT, he said: “We initially agreed for 50/50,” he continued, “But then Tyson was asking for some bigger money. So we made it clear that we are ready to go 60/40, but the winner takes 60. That was our latest offer, [but Fury turned it down].”

Those comments did not go down well on social media, with suggestions that Fury was ducking Usyk.
