Canelo Álvarez, Tyson Fury y Frank Warren

Frank Warren, promoter of Tyson fury, detailed the reasons why Dillian whyte does not deserve a 55-45 split of the bag with Fury and used as an example Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez.

“For example, in recent years, Canelo Alvarez had a mandatory fight with Billy joe saunders and we just made the deal, “he explained in an interview with talkSPORT. “There was no way it would reach 45% of the stock market because the one that generates the most money there is Canelo“.

Warren stated that the money generated by Saul, as well as for Tyson fury At heavyweights, he can’t be equated with any other fighter of the moment. Even if he is a mandatory challenger or has an interim championship.

“Anyone who fights Canelo, even if he is an interim champion, will never take 45% of the bag, and also here we are talking about the heavyweight who wins the most as Tyson fury“, argument Warren, “It is reasonable to do it 80-20.”

Eddie hearn, promoter of Whyte, does not agree with the distribution of the bag. There is currently a dispute with the CMB for them to modify it.

Warren He said he is not concerned if they ultimately appeal the decision. From their perspective it won’t make any difference.

“I don’t think they will get anywhere because, in these situations, the offers are based on what the fighters have won in previous fights,” said the promoter. “They can appeal, but the reality is that I don’t think they make any difference.”

“To begin with, the auctions have been run for a week,” he said. “We will have to wait until Monday 17 or Tuesday 18 (January) to define what will happen.”
