    On what he believes would be a fair offer:

    “In my opinion, because of the revenue implications, and I explained it before, I think it should be 50/50. Both are champions, both bring something to the market. Each one of the guys is going to make substantially more money if they fight each other than if they fight other guys, so I personally think — and I could really walk somebody through the numbers because I know the pay-per-view business probably better than most — I think it should be 50/50.

    “But let’s say it’s not 50/50. Let’s say it’s 45/55, or even if it’s 60/40, I mean you really can’t go lower than that because, again, they gave 33% to Joseph Parker! So how can it possibly be the same or less than that?! If it’s the same or less than that then the message is very clear, and fight fans and media don’t be fooled: they don’t want the fight!”

    60/40 seems fair.

    Joshua is a bigger attraction, no doubt.

    Aye Hearn has a terrible track record of getting Joshua in title fights.

    65/35 call it a day. He at the very least deserves the split Parker got. Already tired of this nonsense.

    Wilder isnt getting 50% and Wilder shouldnt be accepting 12.5 million.

    65/35 seems to make the most sense for both. I don't think Wilder's side would be too outraged at 70-30 either.

    The flat is simply unfair considering what Wilder is bringing to the table.

    Even 65/35 isn't fair. Thats essentially giving Wilder the absolute floor of the already narrow negotiating zone. The WBC strap is worth more than that. It was smart of Wilder & Finkel to publically say they'd accept 60/40 in London, they're publicly exposing how little Hearn wants this fight.

    Tbh I think 70 30 is fair.

    Although if Parker can 65 35 Wilder should get it. Probably should get 60 40 since he's a bigger name than Parker.

    Hope so. I wonder if they were surprised how quick he jumped at fighting in the UK.

    Im sure all the people saying Wilder wouldnt do it are feeling silly.

    Are they demanding a rematch clause?

    Guy is an absolute tool box even suggesting 50/50. What an absolute retard.

    The fuck is we?

    You and the black guy from Alabama? Sheeeiit. It's like here when we want to be proud of a Scot, we claim he's British.

    The rest of the time we shit on them. But you go gurl.

    Tbh if we're going based off bigger attraction than 60/40 is more than fair for Wilder. Fair would be 70/30.
