    Default Wilder-Fury Purses? $4m Wilder/$3m Fury - What did he refuse for Joshua? $15m?

    This is the guarantee before the PPV upside.

    Interestingly, how many PPV's sales needed to double their money?

    IF he wins emphatically though, he would surely be able to ask for a lot more for an AJ fight. I’m totally ignorant as to what went wrong in negotiating that fight originally, or what would impede it in the future, though.

    The truth is, Wilder NEVER wanted to fight Anthony Joshua.

    He knows Joshua is much better fighter, a true elite heavyweight, and he would lose by KO.

    Wilder continues to embarrass himself at the weigh in bay playing dress-up.

    Talk about a prima donna, the dude took 5 minutes to have his handlers dress him in his ridiculous child-safety strappy 50 shades of black Skeletor costume.

    For sure, if he wins impressively it can be considered a brilliant move to avoid Joshua, he's in the biggest fight of his life as an overwhelming favourite. Great move.

    Especially as they did a fantastic job in making Joshua look like the guy who didn't want it. I wonder how much more than 15 million he'll get for Joshua though? The PPV sales need to be astronomical.

    For the sake of argument, let's say he (Wilder) beats Fury but loses to AJ. It's a brilliant move, then. He improves his bargaining position with Joshua after beating Fury. Assuming he'd lose to AJ anyway (not saying he would, mind you), he's wise to get as much as he can from the fight. So he beats the guy (Fury) who some say would beat AJ. He can also build his case on the foundation that "Joshua didn't want to fight me so up stepped Fury and did what AJ was too scared (true or not) to do."

    Personally, it's hard to find fault in the strategy. $15m? Wilder will want to talk about that after he dispatches Fury.

    Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury prize money: How much of the fight purse each fighter gets

    Tyson Fury faces a stern test of his ability when he takes on WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on December 1.

    The self-described ‘Gypsy King’ faces American Wilder at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in only Fury's third fight of his comeback.

    The 30 year-old has collected straight-forward wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta since taking time out of the ring after ending the nine-year heavyweight champion reign of Wladimir Klitzchko in November 2015.

    Fury will face Wilder, a man who has not been beaten in 40 fights in his own back yard. Fury, who is also unbeaten, has not fought across the Atlantic since 2013 when he defeated Steve Cunningham in the seventh round in New York.

    It is believed that Wilder stands to earn $14 million (£10.94m) for the December 1 showdown while Fury is expected to pocket $10m (£7.82m).

    Britain's Anthony Joshua had been in talks to face Wilder in a multi-million-pound unification bout earlier this year, but Joshua was instead forced to face mandatory WBA challenger Alexander Povetkin at Wembley.

    But should Fury be successful in his ambition to capture the WBC heavyweight crown, a mouth-watering Battle of Britain with Joshua could be in the pipeline.

    It's also a contest Fury would love to see happen.

    Fury was asked about the debate over who is the better fighter.

    "I'm not sure. People will always have an opinion on who is better, it is not up to me," he said.

    "But it would be a sin not to fight each other and all get in the mix. It is going to be an exciting time.

    "Who is the best we will find out when we all fight each other."

    Fury has taken on Freddy Roach, who worked with eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao for 20 years, to work in his corner alongside trainer Ben Davison.

    Having completed altitude training at Big Bear Gym in California, Fury has moved back to Roach's Wild Card set up in Hollywood in the build up to the showdown.

    I read the other day that Wilder was getting $12million and Fury $8 million with PPV revenue on top of that

    What was your source?

    ESPN (quoted in the opening post here) is very reliable.

    Not familiar with ESPN it seems. People look thirsty trying to spin this. He’ll get 10+ million for this fight and then AJ can’t offer a flat fee with no venue, no date again. Or really not offer. The whole world saw what happened except the UK it seems. When people disagree with you 100 to 1 you probably should reconsider your stance. If Wilder wins emphatically and it does 500k PPV sales at 74.95 he is looking at 50/50 at worst. The negotiations went exactly as Eddie wanted. I can show him saying exactly that he didn’t want it until Spring 2019 at the earliest long ago.

    TYSON FURY will pocket the biggest cheque of his career when he steps inside the ring to face Deontay Wilder.

    Fury’s second world title fight will earn him a cool £8million ($10.25million), a figure which dwarves his payday he received for his 2015 bout with Wladimir Klitschko.

    Still think it's a smart investment type fight for him. Very winnable and literally the only time an opponent has actually brought a 'following' of their own to a Wilder fight. Besides why not wait and build to AJ, bit like asking a guy if he'd rather be hit in the face with a feather duster or a bucket of concrete.

    There is no way Wilder gets fifty percent of a Joshua fight unless Haymon puts up some astronomical purse to try and buy the title and gives Wilder half of it. The economics and the relative earning power of the two fighters (not even going into the alphabet belts or the lineal title) mean that Joshua gets the lion's share.

    From everything I read, AJ and his people nixed the fight, not Wilder. DEFINITELY don’t think AJ scares either of these guys, and agree with Fury when he says AJ is just a body builder with unique/gimmick training habits. Fury and Wilder are the two best heavyweights in my opinion. Joshua beat an expired Wlad and struggled with the smaller Parker.
