WBC Confirms Purse Split For Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte, Must Strike Deal Within Two Weeks

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have reportedly settled on their purse split.

Fury will get an 80% share of the cash while Whyte will get 20%, the WBC informed both parties on Thursday.

Whyte had originally asked for 45%, which would leave Fury 55%, but Fury’s promoters refused.

According to Fury’s promoters, they began to look elsewhere for their heavyweight champion’s next opponent including Andy Ruiz Jr and Robert Helenius in a non-title fight, but those plans seem to be canceled now.

Both sides of Fury and Whyte have just under two weeks to agree on a deal, but talks have not progressed that far. If they cannot reach an agreement, the fight will go to purse bids on January 11 where any promoter to put an offer in to stage the fight.

Cardiff’s Principality Stadium and Manchester Arena have been named as options.
